Kate Middleton and Prince William are ready for a baby, but have a few more items on their agenda before they can focus on getting pregnant. They will soon be heading out on tour for their leg of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Obviously, it would not be ideal for Kate to be in the first trimester of a pregnancy during the busy travel schedule, but once the tour is over their schedule is very light.
According to a source, that means the couple are prepared to try for a baby. “William and Kate are putting all their effort into having a baby.” In fact, it could even happen this year! It has been widely rumored the couple would announce a pregnancy around the first of the year in 2013. The source adds information that backs up that rumor, “They would love to be expecting by the end of the year.”
As with most women, the announcement Kate Middleton is pregnant would not come until she was past her first trimester. While she is pregnant, her future home at Kensington Palace is undergoing extensive renovations. Of course, the nursery will also be renovated and fit for the future king or queen.
Do not expect to see Will and Kate making a lot of public appearances over the next few months. “She just wants to hide away in Wales Â— out of the glare and the spotlight Â— and get on with producing the future king or queen of England,” says the source. She will want to hide any signs of a baby bump until she is good and ready to make the official announcement.
Are you excited for the next chapter in the lives of the royal couple?
