Kate Middleton Pregnant – Kate Middleton may already be pregnant with firstborn daughter to lead the monarchy.
The royal family might be expanding sooner than everyone expected.
It’s hard to imagine the slender Middleton being pregnant, but the Duchess of Cambridge sparked pregnancy rumors Wednesday after refusing to taste peanut paste during a royal appearance in Denmark, ABC News reports.
Middleton, 29, politely declined to try the peanut product while she and Prince William were at a UNICEF aid depot sampling food items to be sent out to East African countries suffering from famine.
She then gave her husband a knowing look as he inspected the nutrition label on the paste’s packaging, according to ABC.
Doctors frequently recommend that pregnant women stay away from peanuts and peanut byproducts during pregnancy to prevent babies from developing allergies.
Kate herself is not allergic to peanuts — a fact Palace officials have made clear, Duncan Larcombe, royal editor for The Sun, told the news channel.
“Her spokesman went out of their way to stress that she has no nut allergy whatsoever,” Larcombe said.
If Kate is expecting a little peanut of her own, the baby will be first in line to take the throne, even if it’s a girl. The pregnancy rumors come a week after British Parliament changed its 300-year-old succession laws to allow a firstborn daughter to lead the monarchy, even if she has younger brothers, Us Weekly reports.
“The idea that a younger son should become monarch instead of an elder daughter simply because he’s a man, or that a future monarch can marry someone of any faith except a Catholic — this way of thinking is at odds with the modern countries that we’ve all become,” British Prime Minister David Cameron said.
The visit to Denmark was the royal couple’s first official overseas humanitarian trip, ABC reports. They were hosted by the Danish Crown Prince and his wife.
