Breaking palace announcement: A new baby

They’re expanding their brood

The world is buzzing with the thrilling news that Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge are set to become parents again, with reports all over the UK that Kate is expecting her third royal baby – believed to be a boy – in December.

Kensington Palace has confirmed that William will be travelling solo on an upcoming royal visit to Germany, and now insiders are claiming it’s because Kate, 34, is too sick to travel.

The duke and duchess, along with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, all holidayed in France last month, with local newspapers reporting that the young family 
were visiting friends and relatives in the country. It’s believed Kate and Wills may have been sharing their happy baby news with their nearest and dearest.

A new baby on the way would certainly fit in with the duke and duchess’ schedule, with an insider telling Vanity Fair in June: ‘They want at least three kids and for them to be close in age.’
