Duchess Kate’s friend claims Kate will announce her pregnancy within a month

This royal story goes hand-in-hand with my earlier story today. In the earlier post, I discussed the gossip surrounding Prince William and Duchess Kate’s new staffers, and the rumor that William is going to withdraw from his RAF service at the end of the year/beginning of next year so that he and Kate can become full-time royals. Meaning that they would be doing wall-to-wall royal work as opposed to one appearance a week or so. But of course we didn’t discuss Duchess Kate’s duchess-y scheme to still remain under-employed: a baby! Yes, there are more rumors that Kate and William shall announce a royal pregnancy within the next month or so.

Prince William and Kate Middleton will be making a BIG announcement next month, says a friend of Kate’s, sparking intense renewed speculation that a Royal baby is on the way.

Kate, 30, is ready to share “wonderful, happy news” next month, says Jessica Hay in an interview with New Idea magazine. Hay, described as a close friend of Kate’s, tells the mag: “They’re planning to make an announcement in December.”

Hay attended the Royal couple’s wedding reception and shared a school dormitory with Kate at 14. She notes that her friend has gained a little bit of weight recently and that “William and Kate are focused on starting a family.”

William, 30, previously told Katie Couric that his time in the Royal Air Force may be drawing to a close because of the pressures of his “other life” and added, “more importantly, I’d like to have children.”

While Kate will be happy with either a boy or girl, Hay says the Duchess of Cambridge is secretly hoping for a boy first and then a girl. “It seems very traditional but of course they’ll be happy with two boys or two girls, they don’t want more.

“They’ve discussed it endlessly and don’t want to be older parents.”

Pregnancy headlines would be a welcome relief for Kate after her topless-photo ordeal and the international attention it drew. The pictures were snapped while Kate and William vacationed in France.

If I remember correctly, William and Kate announced their engagement right around this time of the year as well, right? So it would be keeping with their tradition to announce big things before Christmas. And their engagement announcement was two years ago – two, long, Waity years. Even if they don’t want to be “older parents,” the truth of the matter is that as far as royal tradition goes, they ARE older parents. William is around the same age as his father when Charles and Diana welcomed him, but Kate is at least seven or eight years older than the average new royal mother. I suppose the wait will be billed as “a new tradition” and evidence of their modernity – and quite honestly, that’s a decent point. People are having babies later and later in real life. But I still think it’s interesting that Kate has taken this long to get pregnant! That is, if she is pregnant. Which… I actually think there’s a very good chance that she is pregnant right now or she will be soon. I think she and William know that they can’t put it off much longer, or there will be a backlash against them for “not doing their duty” (providing an heir). I wonder if Kate knows that as soon as she gets pregnant, she has a built-in excuse to continue her “light schedule”?

    I dont see a bump anywhere on that figure. If it’s true I wish them the very best.

    • Vesper Lynd says:

      Yep, IF they am up with those new it would be gingerful! :-b I can picture he doctor after delivering the baby with a confused expression on his face stating: congratulations! You have a beautiful…er…ginger?! Joking…on a serious note, royal bump watch gets me tired.

  2. Anonny says:

    Some “friend.” I’m sure she’s off the xmas card list for this.

  3. maggiegrace says:

    I’m always surprised when these super-thin women (e.g., Posh, Kate) get pregnant. Their body fat is so low. I had borderline anorexia in my 20′s and didn’t menstruate for 10 years. THere was no way I could get pregnant.

    • Amelia says:

      It is possible to get pregnant and not menstruate. I had an eating disorder through my late teens and when I stopped having periods, I did a bit of research before having sex with my boyfriend, wondering if it meant I still needed to use contraception – it did. It’s rare, but it’s possible, so we kept being safe.
      I’m bloody glad I did – there was one girl I met who had stopped menstruating and then stopped using condoms – BAM! Bun in the oven.

      • teehee says:

        I think a bigger predictor of infertility is lack of ovulation (ie no egg, no pregnancy). Menstruation doesnt indicate ovulation or not, and thinness can still be healthy if the hormones are in order enough to support the development of the zygote in the first 6 weeks.
        I also had 9 years or so wth no cycle, but am also now cystic, ie all my eggs dont erupt and get released, so I am barren as a box of crackers. I have had unprotected sex for 3 years (in an LTR) and no sign of pregnancy anywhere in sight, bleed or no bleed (still irregular). So thinness or bleeding is less of a reliable indicator for fertility. Its all about the eggs….

    • Eleonor says:

      My opinion. Probably she is on “the edge” of anorexia, she works out a lot,and she controls her food. She looks healthier than Victoria. Posh looks like someone who hasn’t been eating solid food in years.

      • Liv says:

        Remember her birthday cake? This woman is crazy. What a sad life.

      • Kellie says:

        @ Liv, I remember her birthday fruit plate! And I also remember a ton of females on here defending her anti-cake birthday and some were saying fruit has more sugar. Me thinks that some peeps have a strained relationship with their food.

      • LAK says:

        @Kellie – the fruit has dangerous levels of sugar and will therefore make you fat is one that floors me every time.

        I had a conversation with 2 people, one on the Atkins and the other recovering Atkins diet and they really believed it, avoided any and all fruit. Not sure they ate any vegetables either. Ate these ‘fruit’ bars instead provided by the purveyors of the diet.

        I blame the diet industry. It has successfully brainwashed people into believing that food is poison and it’s better either to avoid it or use chemical or chemically enhanced substitutes.

  4. Ms Kay says:

    I foresee Wills and Waity to make the BIG announcement and right there his royal Gingerbread of a brother will pull another stunt such as Xmas cards of his royal Gingerbread Jewels circulating…

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Oh, please, let me be on Prince Hot Ginge’s’ Xmas card list! ;)

    • luc4urself says:

      And then Kate will go on vacation and take her bikini top and bottoms off and show the world her tits and ass again. Harry’s not the only one who got nude this year in public. Kate is no saint, she was out flopping her tata’s out in France for the world to see.

      There is no doubt she will get pregnant eventually, she has to, it’s her duty.

      I can’t see this marriage going the distance,kids or not.

      • themummy says:

        Wow. Seriously?? They were in the countryside and on a very private estate (with the understanding that they had privacy–and you know they had security looking out for them too) when those pics were taken by unethical paps. She didn’t “flop” her “tatas out” (that whole phrase you used is misogynistic and gross) for the world to see. She sunbathed topless on a private estate with her husband and no one else. What is wrong with that? Nothing. That’s what. You sound like you time traveled from Puritan times. Yikes.

      • Kimble says:

        Welcome to we, Europeans – we get our tata’s out on vacation until we’re 80 LOL!

        Sad you think there’s anything wrong with it – I’ll bet your bikini has a tank top and a skirt on the bottom LOL!

  5. Patrice says:

    Right Annony?? You took the words right out of my mouth! No real, actual ‘friend’ to Will & Kate (who would actually be close and privy enough to be told such news ahead of an official announcement) would EVER go to a newspaper or magazine and sell them out like this. I’m not even sure the couple would risk telling ANYONE other than immediate family before an official announcement for this very reason…So I call full, totally sketchy BS on this one!

  6. aims says:

    I don’t see a pregnancy also. I do think they’re getting the business about not getting pregnant, though. She married into this family,and she knew full well that it was part of the gig to produce a baby.

  7. Angelic 20 says:

    http://royaldish.com/index.php?topic=7433.5700

    This is the most recent photo of her and she looks really skinny to be pregnant, look at her legs .

  8. Amelia says:

    Eh, I’m still going to be judging what she’s wearing rather than any weight she may or may not have gained around her midriff.
    As I said a few weeks ago, when she starts wearing sack dresses, then we can talk.
    Maybe it’s just the fact that my family is oddly superstitious, but we generally don’t announce pregnancies to *friends* let alone the world until the fifth or sixth month to avoid tempting fate.
    This is probably going to sound unintentionally morbid, but say Waity and Wills announced a pregnancy very early on and (God forbid it doesn’t happen) if Waity did happen to be extremely unfortunate and miscarry, how horrible would it be to see that piece of news splashed across front pages across the world? My Mum miscarried twice which is why she didn’t mention being pregnant with my sister and I until enough time had passed for her to not worry about another loss.

    • emmie_a says:

      I agree. When we see an obvious bump or when they make the announcement then it will be news. I don’t get the fascination with bump-watch. If she’s pregnant we will know soon enough.

      • Hmmm says:

        I don’t get the fascination either. I think it means that we get to see her with a body she can no longer control. She looks the type who would hire a surrogate if she could. Those poor kids are doomed.

        Time for a republic. She’s going to milk that pregnancy for all it’s worth. And so will the tabs. We will see the emergence of a shiny, lazy madonna.

  9. bettyrose says:

    Built in excuse, eh? Because she’ll be a full time mom with midnight feedings, diaper changes, cooking, cleaning, and oooh if only she had some help.

  10. Barbara says:

    Why would a “friend” deny them announcing it themselves??

  11. Reece says:

    More likely that they’re going to announce that they are going to start doing the jobs they were born & bought in to.

  12. Tazina says:

    That kind of “friend” I could do without, one who blabs my personal business to the world. Time for Kate to look for some friends she can trust.

  13. mln76 says:

    Totally buying this story so much bad royal publicity this year with all those naked pics and really what else was this all about she’ll produce an heir and a spare just like every other Royal bride. If the royal family believed she was too thin to breed she wouldn’t have made it through the door.

    • izzy4ya says:

      I don’t think William sought their input, but someone else here can confirm or deny that.

      • mln76 says:

        Of course the Palace(aka the Queen) had to approve of Waity. William has been given more leeway than say his father in picking a bride but the idea that Kate wouldn’t have been tested for fertility is proposterous. Royalty has been making sure brides are able to breed for centuries what in the past would have been a pronouncement by a doctor was in this case done behind closed doors in a civilized manner.

      • Angelic 20 says:

        Min, he has been dating her for 9 years before the engagement announcement, so they definitely didn’t check her fertility because it didn’t matter as she was already chosen by the William and press to be his wife plus he told the Queen and his family about their engagement t hours before the media so again I don’t think that they checked her. I am not saying that she is infertile but there is no way palace checked or could have stopped the engagement because of fertility.

      • Angelic 20 says:

        Min ,i live in England and followed this couple from the staying and yes I do think that there is nothing rf could have done to ensure her fertility because of the nature of their relationship and because William OS a spoiled brat who would never listen to rf. If Queen had the power over this relationship she would have put a stop to it when Kate’s pimp and drug dealing uncle bragged about holidaying with William and getting a goldsmith wing in bp or when Kate was a media and national joke or when her numerous underwear shots appeared in tabloids or when her brother and sister’s naked or half naked photos appeared. As far as their obvious engagement announcement is concerned , well media had been announcing it even before they broke up . so after speculating engagement announcement almost every month like the like pregnancy rumours now, they have to be right at one point or another even Harry said he did knew about the engagement and did not think it will happen.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Am I the only one who finds the phrase “an heir and a spare” kind of callous and offensive?

      (No offence to you, mln – I know you didn’t coin the term.)

      • mln76 says:

        @TOB I find the term offensive but this is the true purpose behind the whole hoopla and to me its worse when the whole thing is romanticized. I do believe that there is some genuine affection in this relationship but Kate is chattel to the royal family whose main purpose is to breed and garner good (but not too much publicity).
        Angelic and Izzy sorry to burst the bubble but There were step by step signals that indicated that in fact William would be proposing so it was no surprise to anyone who followed the royals or the Queen. My guess is all the background checks,sonograms,and genetic testings were done before the gradual unveiling. The Royal wedding was tens of millions of dollars do you honestly believe the Queen would spend that amount and ask the tax payers to foot half the bill on an infertile therefore unsuitable bride? If Kate couldn’t produce an heir William would have had to end the relationship and find a suitable bride at some point.

  14. KellyinSeattle says:

    Well, I think it’s likely she is , or like Kaiser says, soon will be, and that’s great for them, but the only thing is I feel badly for her (even though she probably knew what she was getting in)..she has to have sex with Wills (shudders).

  15. Boo says:

    Maybe Kate and William asked the friend to “leak” this info early for some specific reason?

    I would think that for someone like Kate, the idea of getting bigger and bigger as her pregnancy moves along would be VERY difficult to come to terms with. Imagining the paps and the tabs pointing out every degree of bump and noticing every bit of fullness in her face, her butt, her legs. I would think the whole thing is terrifying for her.

  16. hannah says:

    Old for royal mothers ? Uhm no

    Letizia (Spain) born in 1972 , first child in 2005

    Mathilde (Belgium) born in 1973, first child in 2001

    Maxima (the Netherlands) born in 1971, first child in 2003

    Mary (Denmark) born in 1972, first child in 2005

    Victoria (Sweden) born in 1977, first child in 2012

    Mette Marit (Norway) born 1973, first child 1997 , first royal child in 2004

    Kate is right on track

    • Suze says:

      I think Kaiser was referring to British royals…but I am in awe of the fact that there are so many European royals running around out there and that you know the ages at which they first gave birth.

      • kristiner says:

        T5heThe British royals don’t seem to care much for women and education. The Eurpoean ones are crown princesses who were established in their fields. THEY are modern women. Letizia worked for freaking CNN, Mathaldie is some kidn of therapist or something, Maxima was in business/marketing, so was Mary.

        The British get their women old school. Dumb and just wanting them to sit stand and smile. Diana did a lot of good but they got her literally right out of the school room. She was a preschool teacher. Aka she worked in a daycare. I don’t think she was “teaching” as much as a babysitter at a center. Kate just went to college to get her MRS. Degree and followed the money when she knew William was headed to St. Andrews. She wanted to ultimate MRS. Degree and she got it. She didn’t want a career. I personally don’t even think she really wants to be a mother but more so just a princess.

        Sure some woman still have a traditional, 50s mindset and that’s fine. They just want to be stay at home moms and have no job or career whatsoever because they want children and to raise them. But this is 2012 and as far as princesses go that kind of lifestyle seems lazy. The idea of a woman established in her field and doing something career wise and then meeting the love of her life and giving it all up is a fairytale. Not just doing nothing and meeting a prince.

        That’s admirable IMO. WOW, what a strong minded woman giving all that independence up for love.

  17. Zombie Shortcake says:

    It sounds as though the ‘big news’ that will be announced is that they’re moving their home base to Kensington Palace in January…

  18. Lulu says:

    Her belly doesn’t look as flat as usual in that lace overlay dress does it?

    My husband and I can’t wait until his business is up and running and I can stay home and take care of things there. I didn’t work for the first 3 years after my daughter was born and it was the best thing I ever did. I wouldn’t have ever gone back to work more than part time if I hadn’t absolutely had to. I don’t think we working women should be shaming women who don’t have to work and chose not to. Clearly it’s between William and Kate. I think Diana did as much as she did because she enjoyed being out and about and didn’t mind being photographed (loved it most likely). Kate seems much more reticent to me. JMHO.

    • izzy4ya says:

      I don’t mind housewives, if that’s what they’re actually doing-working with their children and keeping house. Sometimes it’s actually more cost effective for someone to stay home with children rather than work. But I give no more credit to a lazy married woman/mother than I do to a lazy/shiftless man. My neighbor is a “stay at home mom”, which means her nanny does all the work while she runs from house to house gossiping and pretending to be busy. Their house was burgled recently and I found it hilarious because…where exactly was she while this went on, gossiping with the heffer down the street. I don’t mind people not working because they’re living off of the fruit of their own labor, but Kate is not an example of that.

      • Lulu says:

        Is she not living off of the the ‘fruit’ of her husband’s labor? If you want to argue the Royalty position, that is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish IMO. There are enough people that think it is worthwhile for them to be there to pay for them to be there. I do think they should be allowed to live the kind of life they choose, and William certainly works hard enough. We don’t see Camilla doing much these days do we? Where is the judgement on her?

        We don’t have privy to their private lives, but haven’t we heard that Kate prefers to do the shopping, cooking, laundry, etc. herself? When I was a stay at a home the work never ended, but I loved it, even before I had my daughter.

      • Angelic 20 says:

        Lulu, we don’t have elections so no you can’t say that there are enough people who want to pay for them of given a choice. We don’t have a choice and whether we want to or not our money fund her. she absolutely do not live on fruits of her husband’s labour, age lives in a mansion size cottage with a housekeeper cook cleaner Gardner driver paid by Charles through duchy in addition to kp apartment redecorated by tax payers money plus security and other cottages on a public lusted land s. Also Camilla did some 300 engagements last year but media always choose to ignore just like they do with the rest of the rf. Just because media do not report that does not mean other members do not work. Kate is the one that works minimum and get the maximum attention.

      • izzy4ya says:

        Lulu, Kate lives off her father in law’s money, not her husbands. And no, I don’t respect that either. Kate pretends to do things for herself because a few gullible people will believe it but the last two years has all bust dispelled most of that BS. My neighbor doesn’t even do the job she claims she is at home doing. To each their own, but why are people so sensitive about questioning a woman’s laziness, but no matter what situation a man is in we EXPECT him to be eager to make his own way? Kate, like my neighbor, is lazy.

      • Lulu says:

        I realize that they are not voted in. However, the English people still have a choice whether or not to carry on as a monarchy (believe it or not).

      • LAK says:

        Lulu – there is a law that prohibits us from voting them out. So no, we don’t have a choice in that sense.

        The only 2 alternative ways are via referendum, a political process that depends on the parliamentary process that isn’t a guaranteed option because it has to be a majority win, which then gets debated further and may hit a legal loop hole (like that pesky law) which may render referendum illegal or the violent revolution way which as a civilised nation, will not wash.

        That’s why you get the frustrated snark because it really is about being born to the right family or marrying in and nought to do with merit.

      • Lulu says:

        @LAK: Thank you for that information. I’ve been reading into it now that my curiousity has been peaked. According to the BBC, 3/4 of the British approved of and continue to approve of the monarchy concept since the 1950′s. The number has been virtually unchanged as each decade has gone by.

        http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-18237280

      • Angelic 20 says:

        Lulu, never trust the bbc when it comes to rf they are the most pro royal media outlets in England. But I agree that most brits support rf including me for now, the real question is what will happen once Queen is dead because after her I am no way going to support this institution and many other commonwealth countries will also abolish the monarchy. Having said that we tax payers still find Kate’s lifestyle in one way or other and have a right to judge her public role or lack of it.

      • Lulu says:

        @Angelic20: The polling data they were referring to in their article was not their own. I don’t believe anything the media has to say. Just show me the numbers.

    • Angelic 20 says:

      Lulu,my mother is a housewife and was a full time mother and I respect hard working housewives because imo they have one of the most difficult jobs of taking care of another human being and even if they are not mothers I don’t look down on them BUT Kate is a public figure whose lifestyle, home, security is funded by tax payers of England in one way or another, unlike a normal housewife. She is a public figure and I don’t think she wants to be just another housewife .she perused this position relentlessly without any other interest or life beyond William, so no your statement do not apply to her. If she wanted to be a housewife she married the wrong man, it’s not her choice anymore.she have to do public engagements because she is funded by us.

  19. Andrea says:

    I still am amazed victoria Beckham got pregnant (especially with Harper). She must be killer fertile to combat that skinnyness. As for kate, I really think she does not want to get pregnant ATM and she wants to stay skinny mini. Just my opinion, but I can’t forsee her eating (did you hear she was at a dinner at their asian tour and only drank water) and she clearly was not pregnant! She is anorexic/an extreme dieter, end of.

  20. Another K says:

    When does Harry get back? He’s more fun to read about. I miss him.

  21. maisie says:

    This isn’t the first time that this *cough* friend has tried to sell Kate out: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1373036/Kate-Middleton-bullied-30k-girls-school-skinny-meek.html

    Particularly compelling is the quote “Miss Hay, who has left her job at a law firm to concentrate on selling her story…”

  22. Kellie says:

    I dont think she’s pregnant. I would be shocked if they even have sex. I would be more shocked if they had sex and Wills actually wanted to get her pregnant. Afterall, the fatest way to get rid of her would be to claim infertility. Finally, I would be floored if a woman under so much stress that he hair grows grey from the roots could easily conceive.

  23. Kate says:

    I just googled this woman and she sold stories on Kate all along the line – said she mooned at school, said she was bullied, etc etc. I also found several reports that Hay hadn’t been invited to the wedding.

    I’ve no clue if she is pregnant or not, but this woman would have no way of knowing. Not even convinced she was ever a friend to begin with – being a contemporary at school doesn’t make you one, after all. She’s just a self publicist.

    I do wonder why people keep insisting Kate has no friends, though – there were a lot of weddings this summer where the bride was stated to be an old schoolfriend of hers, and some William didn’t even go to. Her friends are unlikely to be as newsworthy as his, because they predate her royal years and most will be plain rich and posh, rather than staggeringly so. The family are definitely social mountaineers but I’ve never seen evidence they lack charm. They’d not have been as successful without it.

  24. Eileen says:

    WTH does everyone give her so much sh!t? I think she’s doing fine.
    If she preggo, great-if she’s not-great. Whatevs.

  25. jk says:

    Wow are all you people in here over weight? I weighed 105 when I got pregnant and no eating disorder , was all legs and always thin. No one knew we were having a baby until I was 7 months pregnant and trust me I eat everything and anything, my past time is eating lol I gained 22 pound and left the hospital at 105 and 5″4. I had 2 pair of maternity pants and a few over sized tops. I also fell at 8 months and had our daughter at 8 months and if I had carried her full term she would have been a 9 pounder , she was only 7 .6 because of being early but went home in 2 days. We all have different genes and Kate doesn;t have an eating disorder. My sister in law like fruit and veggies over fatteninbg meals and steaks and such. SHe was healthy as hell and never was over weight . She took pride in how she looked and did not use pregnancy to eat like a pig and gain weight you need months or years to get rid of. I feel bad for Kate because of all the nasty B’s out here that think they are doing the baby a favor by getting fat. They are not and exercise is important.Get off the couch, eat healthy .I am 68 abd have never weighed mnore then 120 pounds because I watch how mch I eat, I eat til I feel full and do not gorge myself,try it you may like it and so will your husband.

    • Angelic 20 says:

      Wow did you just body shame pregnant women who gain weight? I have nothing to say to you other then people speculate (not me) Kate having an eating disorder because unlike you she was never this skinny before the wedding and was really a healthy girl who looked her age.

      • Andrea says:

        Couldn’t agree more! Had she ALWAYS looked like this I wouldn’t have an issue with it, but she clearly dropped 20 lbs of unneeded weight. Do the math:with her height, she is underweight according to the BMI.if she is 100 lbs at 5’10″ she is 30 lbs underweight!

    • Izzy4ya says:

      Oh calm down. How is working hard to be underweight any better than overeating and becoming overweight? Kate has always been athletic and healthy, until she decided to become a celebrity. And yes, there are women (that Rancic character) that would rather deal with infertility than “ruin” their figure and follow her own doctor’s advice. Let’s not act like they don’t exist. You don’t have to be fat to see both sides of the argument And I hope you include yourself in the “nasty B” category, cuz you certainly sound like a self righteous one too.

      • Angelic 20 says:

        EXCUSE me but when exactly I called someone a nasty b or any other name? I do know women who rather starve themselves then get pregnant and those who have dangerous eating habits but JK is actually generalising that anyone who questions Kate’s state of health or ability to conceive a child is either an over eater or some fat pregnant women who eats like and I quote”like a pig ” while they are pregnant, so yeah that is over the line especially coming from a women herself and guess what there are plenty of skinny women who judge those who don’t starve themselves. People have reasons to question Kate.s state of health because of her aging over night and loss of weight but I don’t know on what basis JK generalised all women who question Kate other then that she might be one of those skinny girls who judge those who are not and you have to accept these type of women also exist.

    • themummy says:

      Nice self-righteous body shaming. (sarcasm)

      Also, which is it: you can’t put on weight because you eat anything and everything and eating is your pastime OR you don’t gain weight because you “watch how mch I eat, I eat til I feel full and do not gorge myself”?

      Can’t really be both, yet you claimed both.

    • Jaded says:

      It’s people like you who give other women eating disorders by shaming them this way. Every woman is different and pregnancy affects every woman differently. It depends on metabolism, the effect pregnancy hormones have, build and body type. So you got the lucky end of the stick and stayed skinny despite everything, fine, but don’t sh*t all over women as weak or using their pregnancy as an excuse to get fat.

      You are a liar.

      “I eat everything and anything, my past time is eating”(line 3-4) VERSUS “I watch how mch I eat, I eat til I feel full and do not gorge myself”(second to last line).

      You can’t have it both ways, honey.

      And it’s people like you–who shame women who gain weight during pregnancy–that give women body dysmorphia and eating disorders.

      @jk..wow, I found your post quite interesting until the toxic and bitchy bit at the end. Everyone is different sweetie. I am also 5″4, and while pregnant I CHOSE to sit around on my butt and eat and relax. I went from 125 to 175 pounds. My baby was 7 pounds 14 and perfectly healthy. Took me two years to get down to 120. My focus was on my baby, not whether I could fit in skinny jeans.

    Since when does Kate have friends? LOL jk, but seriously, we never see/hear anything about her female friends, it’s all about Will’s crowd.

    Also, no actual friend of Will or Kate would go running to the press like this–they pick there friends carefully to avoid crap like this.

    And I read some article (posted above) about this woman and how she has already claimed a number of things, some of which she either contradicted herself, or were disproven. I don’t believe a thing about this.

    Kate could well be pregnant – the time frame is right – but this woman no more has the inside scoop than I do.

    There is no way Kate and William are confiding in any loose lipped friends.

    I’m definitely not fan of hers or her sister’s, but Kate does have a nice figure. She manages to look slim but yet healthy (of course, that’s no guarantee that she would actually be healthy).

    Birthday “cake” of fruits? Maybe she just likes the taste of fruit more. Plus, fruits have more vitamins and fiber than cake and even though fruits are high in sugar, it’s much healthier sugar than pure white sugar, white wheat and fats that the cakes usually are made of.

    But I do think she’s very vain in other ways (extensions etc.).
