The world’s favorite royal figure — Kate Middleton — has been confirmed to be pregnant, while the latest sources are suggesting that she may have a baby girl on the way — and considering the name Elizabeth, no less. With the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge finally beginning to show a little baby bump, bouts of morning sickness have been attributed as the reason Kate has been unable to brave several recent royal tours, including one to Malta. BBC News has revealed this Sunday, September 21, that her husband Prince William has since taken her place.
The Palace made the formal announcement that Kate Middleton and Prince William would be welcoming their second child into the royal family earlier this month, finally confirming the rumors that had been rebounding for weeks. It has not been determined quite yet whether baby number two is going to be a boy or girl, but the public anticipation is already palpable. One source from Celeb Dirty Laundry is alleging this weekend that Duchess Kate is keen on giving her child the name of Elizabeth if she has a girl.
There are even some claims that William and Kate have some designs under consideration for a pink nursery. Globe News states from one of their celebrity insiders:
“They’ve already told the ailing Queen they believe it’s a girl, and asked for her permission to name their baby Elizabeth. Like many of us, William and Kate fear the Queen doesn’t have long left, and want to honor her while she is still alive. She was absolutely thrilled by the news, it’s given her a new lease on life.”
Prince George may resent not being the only royal child in the family any longer, but the soon-to-be sibling has been spending some quality time with his mother while he has the chance. Duchess Kate has been said to be braving a bad case of morning sickness recently, resulting in the royal figure having Prince William go on some international tours in her stead.
It may be too soon for much of her premature baby bump to even show, but a pregnant Kate Middleton is seemingly preparing some possible names for baby number two. Previous reports suggested that the royal lady was considering naming a possible baby girl Diana in honor of William’s late mother (the beloved Princess Diana), though others insist that Margaret remains one of the most likely choices.
Lastly, in related celebrity news surrounding the Duchess of Cambridge, there are fresh gossip accounts asserting that some serious drama is going down between Kate and Camilla Parker-Bowles. Apparently Parker-Bowles is upset with Prince George’s mom because she’s been “lazy,” letting her morning sickness prevent her from fulfilling her duties and going on scheduled royal tours. These sites note that Camilla believes Kate is simply “malingering,” regardless of any potential health issues. Whether actual truth is to be found from this new report remains a mystery outside of the Palace walls, however.
Now, readers, the question is on you — do you think Kate Middleton has a girl on the way? Would Elizabeth be a fitting name? What might you consider if the pregnant royal duchess had another baby boy? It seems that until the child is born, the public will continue to speculate excitedly over this highly anticipated bundle of joy and her ever-in-the-spotlight mother.
