Recent buzz suggested that the world might soon get a glimpse of a second royal baby, but according to Prince William, Prince George won’t be gaining a sibling anytime soon.
When prompted by a solider at a St. Patrick’s Day military base celebration in Aldershot, southern England, on Monday to address the recent pregnancy rumors regarding his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, the British royal responded by confirming that the couple is not expecting their second (or, according to some reports, their third) child. “One’s enough at the moment,” the 31-year-old Duke of Cambridge revealed, according to AP.
While William confirmed that Middleton, 32, is officially not with child, the royal did hint at another possibly pregnancy down the line. “Maybe one day,” teased the Prince, AP reported.
According to Reuters, the royal couple attended the military base in honor of a St. Patricks’ Day Parade in which Prince William served as the colonel of regiment. In honor of the Irish celebration, Middleton sported a green trench coat while presenting the sprigs of shamrocks to the officers and guardsmen of the regiment while on parade.
Rumors of Middleton’s alleged second pregnancy first began surfacing in January after Star magazine reported that the Duchess was in the midst of her first trimester of pregnancy and hoping for a baby girl. In February, The Globe reported similar findings, publishing claims that the couple was also expecting a princess. The latest report, released by OK! Magazine earlier this month, stated that Middleton was pregnant with twins.
“She and William have been trying since January,” reads the tabloid’s report, adding that the couple had been hoping for girls this time around. “With all the boys in his family [William is] trying to even up the balance,” said a royal insider.
Middleton last made headlines earlier this week after Us Weekly released an excerpt from an upcoming Prince Harry biography claiming that the Duchess isn’t a “natural fit” with the prince’s longtime girlfriend and rumored future fiancee, Cressida Bonas. “Kate and Cressida aren’t a natural fit, when left to their own devices,” reads the Marcia Moody book, “Harry: A Biography.” The excerpt’s release follows claims that Middleton had been advising Bonas, a professional model, on her rumored upcoming royal engagement.
Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their first child, His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, last July. The couple has been married since April 2011.
