Duchess of Cambridge may be pregnant again

The Duke of Cambridge seemed to let it slip that his wife may be pregnant again.

In an unguarded comment on a walkabout in the small New Zealand town of Cambridge, William dropped the biggest hint yet that he and Kate plan to extend their family.

On day six of their tour, they braved drizzly conditions to greet well-wishers including Briton Cynthia Read, who was commissioned by the New Zealand government to make a merino wool shawl for George. The Duke thanked Mrs Read for the gift before telling her: ‘You might have to make another one soon!’

Mrs Read, who emigrated from Newcastle-upon-Tyne eight years ago with her husband Ken, said: ‘The way William said it was like he was letting me in on a secret.’

The Royal couple arrived in Dunedin in southern New Zealand - which, like much of the south of the country, has a large Scottish population - yesterday morning where, amongst other things, they attended a church service and each coached a children's rugby team.

The competitive couple spent the morning at a children's rugby tournament at the Forsyth Barr Stadium, where the Duke of Cambridge won royal bragging rights when he coached a 'Rippa Rugby' team to victory over opponents led by his wife.

Still smarting from the defeat he suffered last week when the Duchess comprehensively won a yachting challenge, the Duke was determined to win on the pitch.

His team of ten youngsters, Clutha, did not let him down and they were comfortable winners against Kate's group, Pirates, in front of thousands of cheering fans and at the final whistle he punched the air in delight with both fists.

Kate was supported by New Zealand All Blacks captain Richie McCaw, one of the world's greatest rugby union players.

The Duke could not help teasing his wife and looked in her direction and said 'next time, next time'.

Rippa Rugby is a form of safe, non-contact rugby in rugby union-mad New Zealand for children.


So, William, are you firing the starting gun on baby number two? Prince drops biggest hint yet telling woman who made George's shawl: 'You might have to make another!'

He has been the star of the Royal Tour Down Under so far, but Prince George may soon have to share the spotlight with a sibling, according to the Duke of Cambridge.

In an unguarded comment on a walkabout in the small New Zealand town of Cambridge, William dropped the biggest hint yet that he and Kate plan to extend their family.

On day six of their tour, they braved drizzly conditions to greet well-wishers including Briton Cynthia Read, who was commissioned by the New Zealand government to make a merino wool shawl for George. The Duke thanked Mrs Read for the gift before telling her: ‘You might have to make another one soon!’

Mrs Read, who emigrated from Newcastle-upon-Tyne eight years ago with her husband Ken, said: ‘The way William said it was like he was letting me in on a secret.’

Given her history of severe morning sickness – Kate spent three days in hospital while carrying George – it is likely the Duchess would be advised not to fly or undertake an arduous tour while in the early stages of a second pregnancy.

However, Royal insiders point out that George was conceived just weeks after the couple returned from their Far East tour in September 2012, and it is possible they plan to start trying for another child once they have finished this trip.

William's team beats Kate's team in Rippa Rugby

The competitive couple spent the morning at a children's rugby tournament, where the Duke of Cambridge won royal bragging rights when he coached a 'Rippa Rugby' team to victory over opponents led by his wife.

The venue for the rematch was the Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin, New Zealand and featured two teams of youngsters who had won through to the final of a day-long tag rugby tournament for five to seven-year-olds.

Rippa rugby is a non-contact form of the sport designed for primary school children with players ripping a flag from the belt of an opponent instead of tackling them.

Huriana Manuel, captain of New Zealand's women's rugby sevens team, joined William in supporting the winning Clutha team from the town of South Otago near Dunedin.

She said the Duke was determined not to lose: 'He brought something special to the team, he's lost a few competitions to his wife and he really wanted to win.


'He said to the kids "make sure you go out there and enjoy yourself" and the win followed from that.'

Rivalry: The sporty couple engaged in a spot of friendly competition at the rugby tournament as they were each given a team to coach


William and Kate attended the young players' tournament at Forsyth Barr Stadium on Sunday morning. They were joined by members of the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team


Everyone having fun: Rippa Rugby is a contact-free version of the sport which allows children to learn how to play without the physical element of tackling


The Duchess looked casual and sporty in a Jonathan Saunders jumper, skinny jeans and Mint Velvet pumps. She changed out of the formal blue dress she wore to church earlier in the morning

New Zealand All Blacks captain Richie McCaw was on hand to give support to Kate as she led the Pirates, a Dunedin team.

William first watched McCaw play on New Zealand soil when he flew to the Commonwealth country to follow the British & Irish Lions tour against the All Blacks in 2005.

The royals both chatted at length to their teams before they took to the pitch and clapped whenever one of the diminutive players, both girls and boys, scampered over the line for a try.

Gemma Tuhega, a teacher who was with the Pirates, said: 'She didn't know too much about the game she was getting to know the kids.'

At the presentation ceremony the royal couple handed out medals to all the teams and then personally put them round the necks of the winning team and runners-up.

McCaw gave a short speech and joked how the scores were now even between the Duke and Duchess.

Kate coached a Rippa Rugby team, the Pirates, with some help from All Blacks captain Richie McCaw (centre). However their team were defeated by Clutha, the team coached by William





The royal couple went to the young players' Rippa Rugby tournament after attending church at St Paul's Cathedral on Sunday morning and the sporty duchess was keen to talk tactics with some of her young players

Revenge: Prince William was a passionate coach to his Clutha team and got his own back on Kate by winning the game

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Dunedin this morning to grey skies and the sound of the bagpipes, as William commented: 'It's like being in Edinburgh.'

The couple disembarked their RNZAF jet - on which they were joined by the entire British media - to a traditional Maori welcome from the Ngai Tahu tribe, the main tribe on the South Island.

Elders from the tribe conducted a welcome - or Powhiri - which involved chanting at the couple from some distance before inviting them forward.

Although their voices could barely be heard over the roars of nearby planes, the welcome committee carried out the chant with enthusiasm.

Then William and Kate walked forward and rubbed noses with their hosts in a traditional Maori welcome known as a hongi.

Five-year-old Mataawhio Matahaere-vieint greeted the Duchess of Cambridge, 32, with a curtsey and a hongi - a traditional Maori greeting, which involves touching noses - before the little girl gave the Duchess of Cambridge a hug.


A bit of friendly competition: William was delighted to see his Clutha team to a victory over his wife's Pirates team after she beat him in an Auckland yacht race

We are the champions! Prince William's team, Clutha, won the tournament and their captain Henry Craig was presented the trophy on behalf of his team

Afterwards the little girl said: 'I asked if I could hug her and she said yes, she was beautiful.'

After greeting Kate with a hug, five-year-old Mataawhio gave her books for Prince George.

Ripeka Potiki, 7, gave the royal couple a gift of albatross feathers from the royal albatross who have their only mainland breeding colony in Dunedin.

William spoke to tribal elder Edward Ellison, 63.

He said: 'William said thank you very much for the welcome.

'He said that it was a bit like being in Edinburgh with the conditions, the weather and the bagpipes.

'We are very excited they're here.

'They are an inspirational couple and we hear a lot about them.'

The piper at the airport reflected the large Scottish population in Dunedin.

Fantastic experience: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were welcomed to the Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin by children who performed the haka

Prospects: Some of these youngsters may well end up preforming the haka on a grander scale for the New Zealand rugby team at some point

The Duchess coached a Rippa Rugby team, despite knowing much about the sport. Her team were defeated by husband William's team 30-2

A small crowd had gathered at the entrance of the airport to cheer and wave to the couple as they got into their car to make their way to a morning church service.

Stepping off the couple's Air Force jet, the Duchess of Cambridge looked elegant as she paraded a New Zealand designer - of sorts - for the first time on the royal tour.

Wickstead, a favourite of Prime Minister's wife Samantha Cameron, is New Zealand born but London based.

She paired the coat with a hat by Jane Taylor, a favourite milliner, and the Queen's diamond fern brooch, a gift from the women of Auckland in 1954, for the second time on the trip.

On a visit to Hamilton yesterday the Duchess was wearing a stunning green Erdem coat, but admitted to locals that her own husband wasn't a fan.

She told Evie Hayes, 68, who admired her outfit: 'I like it but William thinks it is a bit bright.'

Prince William and Kate attended a Palm Sunday service at St Paul's Cathedral in Dunedin on Sunday morning. They are accompanied by the Dean of the cathedral, the Very Rev. Trevor James

I can't wait for all the souvenir mugs and tablecloths again and for Kay Burley to be standing outside the hospital again for hours and hours and hours and hours looking for things to say whilst she waits for the royal couple to emerge with their new prince or princess.

Actually, I don't think lack of libido has ever been a problem with the royals...they were always forced to marry according to whatever was deemed best for the country at the time...then it was expected that they would dilly dally as they chose...

like Charles did... and all of those before him...wouldn't be surprised if almost every Brit has some drop of blue blood much like all Amercians do with African blood.

From the Royal Marines Manual on Sidearm Firing:

"Firing sidearms is relatively simple if one remembers the 13 easy steps:

1. Point sidearm.

2. Clutch belly.

3. Close eyes.

4. Squinch up face.

5. Pull trigger.

6. Disengage safety.

7. Point sidearm.

8. Clutch belly.

9. Close eyes.

10. Squinch up face.

11. Pull trigger.

12. Squeal like little girl.

13. Pee pants."

Charles never loved Diana, although Diana loved Charles.

Charles's heart was always with Camilla.

I'm also certain they shagged each other before Charles married Di.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall (who is the daughter of WWII hero Major Bruce Shand) were introduced to each other around 1971 - when Diana was only around ten years old - by a mutual friend, Lucia Santa Cruz.



They began dating and became a couple, and regularly met at polo matches at Smith's Lawn in Windsor Great Park, where Charles often played polo. They also became part of a set at Annabel's in Berkeley Square. As the relationship grew stronger, Charles met Camilla’s family in Sussex and he introduced her to some members of his family. The relationship was put on hold after Charles travelled overseas to join the Royal Navy in early 1973; however, it ended abruptly afterwards.

There have been different statements on why the couple's relationship ended in 1973. Historian Robert Lacey wrote in his 2008 book, Royal: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, that Charles had met Camilla too early, and that he had not asked her to wait for him when he went overseas for military duties. Sarah Bradford wrote in her 2007 book, Diana, that a member of the close circle of his great-uncle Lord Mountbatten claimed Mountbatten arranged for Charles to be taken overseas to end the relationship with Camilla to make way for an engagement between his granddaughter and Charles.

....


... and with Princess Diana


Some sources also suggest the Queen Mother did not approve of the marriage because she wanted Charles to marry one of the Spencer family granddaughters of her close friend, Lady Fermoy. Other sources also suggest Camilla did not want to marry Charles but instead wanted to marry Andrew Parker Bowles since she had an on and off relationship with Parker Bowles that began in the 1960s or that Charles had decided he would not marry until he was thirty years old.

By the way, not only is Camilla the second wife of Charles, but Charles is also the second husband of Camilla.

In 1973, Camilla Shand married above-mentioned British Army officer Andrew Parker Bowles, with whom she has two children and five grandchildren. They divorced in 1995, shortly after his retirement from the army.

Ten years later, she then married Charles.

Diana was a lovely young girl smittened by Charles.
Can't say I was ever a big fan. I remember seeing them interviewed on their honeymoon. They were in Scotland and were asked about being "in love". She answered like the young girl she was. He answered like the older man that he was: he said something about "what ever that is". I was young myself at the time but I knew right then there was more to it and suspected he did not actually love her.

I do believe though he cared "about" her since she was the mother of his babies.

As time went forward of course and more and more came out about her anorexia and his feelings for Camilla and how he was pressed by Phillip to "do the right thing", ya just knew it was going to end badly.

That brought the royals kicking and screaming into the modern era.

It was necessary.

I am glad that Charles got his Camilla.

The queen married the love of her life. Now Charles has too. I do believe that William has as well.

Charles and Di spent their honeymoon cruising around the Mediterranean on the Royal Yacht Britannia. They started off in Gibraltar, and in Greece they had a romantic barbecue by themselves on the beach.

Well, they went to Balmoral after their 11 day cruise around the Mediterranean. I'm not sure you can count visiting your family at your parents' (or in laws') home as going on honeymoon.

lol you have that right...I just remember he was in a kilt...anyway it doesn't matter much...it ended in a shambles and I hope he is happy now, I like Charles, and always have.

Camilla I don't know much about, except she is your typical British rough and ready type.

It wasn't just Charles who had feelings for someone else during the marriage.

As early as 1985 Diana started an affair with Major James Hewitt whilst Charles, at the same time, had an affair with Camilla. Diana's affair lasted five years, and there are even those who believe that Hewitt is the father of Prince Harry.

By the way, when Diana married Charles she acquired the rank of third highest female in the United Kingdom Order of Precedence, after the Queen (the top-ranked person, too, of course) and the Queen Mother: Orders of precedence in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (external - login to view)

It seems as though the Duchess of Cambridge is, indeed, pregnant again.

With less than a week to go until Prince George's first birthday, bookmakers have suspended betting on a royal pregnancy announcement this month after a flurry of bets were placed overnight.

The bets, which were placed with bookmakers Coral, were made online and in quick succession - enough, said a spokesman for the betting firm, to set alarm bells ringing.

'With Prince George’s first birthday just around the corner, the latest gamble strongly indicates that he could soon be joined by a little brother or sister,' commented Coral's Nicola McGeady.

'In fact, there could even be double celebrations in the Windsor household next Tuesday.'

With less than a week to go until Prince George's first birthday, bookmakers have suspended betting on a royal pregnancy announcement this month after a flurry of bets were placed overnight.

The bets, which were placed with bookmakers Coral, were made online and in quick succession - enough, said a spokesman for the betting firm, to set alarm bells ringing.

Prior to the unusual activity, Coral had been offering odds of 10-1 on the Duchess of Cambridge announcing a second pregnancy in July but slashed the odds to even money before pulling the plug entirely.

'With Prince George’s first birthday just around the corner, the latest gamble strongly indicates that he could soon be joined by a little brother or sister,' commented Coral's Nicola McGeady.

'In fact, there could even be double celebrations in the Windsor household next Tuesday.'

Ladbrokes has also suspended betting on a July pregnancy announcement after slashing odds from 8/11 to 4/1 overnight.

Kensington Palace, which has not confirmed any of the rumours or speculation, refused to comment when approached by MailOnline.

The latest news comes in the wake of a blizzard of speculative reports in the foreign press, many of which claim to have proof that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting again.


Family: Coral had been offering odds of 10-1 on Prince George getting a sibling but has now suspended betting


Rumours: The foreign media has been reporting rumours of a second royal pregnancy for months

Most prominent was a report in Australian magazine New Day, which alleged that a friend of the Duchess has confirmed the pregnancy rumours.

Jessica Hay, who confirmed the Duchess of Cambridge's first pregnancy in November 2012, is said to have told the tabloid that the Duchess is expecting with an announcement to follow 'within months'.

'Kate's inner circle are buzzing with the news that she is pregnant,' said Hay, according to the Australian magazine.

'I've heard it from several different friends of theirs now and they're saying that they think there's going to be an official announcement in weeks.'

Hay, who attended Marlborough College with the Duchess, added, 'Kate's face is fuller like it was when she was first expecting George and she's been changing her hair, which could be to disguise the fullness.

'She has rosy cheeks, she's letting her greys show again, and whenever she's out in public she goes to great lengths to hold something over her tummy.'

WILL IT BE VICTORIA OR JAMES FOR BABY NUMBER TWO? TRADITIONAL NAMES MOST POPULAR WITH PUNTERS

Bookmakers might have suspended betting on a possible pregnancy announcement this month but that hasn't stopped punters from placing bets on the name of Prince George's future brother or sister.

The current favourites, according to Ladbrokes, are Victoria and James on 6/1, with Alexandra and Elizabeth tied on second place with odds of 8/1.

Also popular are Thomas on 10/1, Mary and Diana on 12/1 and Alice on 16/1. Charles, Charlotte, Frances and Phillip are also heavily backed.

Least popular are Louis, Richard and Peter - currently lagging at the back of the royal baby name stakes on 25/1.
