New reports about Kate Middleton’s rumored second pregnancy claim that the Duchess of Cambridge suffered a miscarriage earlier this month.
The news of Middleton’s miscarriage comes weeks after her childhood friend Jessica Hay confirmed the pregnancy reports to The Hollywood Gossip. But, the reports were dismissed by a spokesperson at Kensington Palace, who told ET Canada that Middleton, 32, and Hay have not spoken to each other for many years.
"On a morning in early July Kate woke up feeling unusually sick," according to the Aug. 4 print edition of GLOBE magazine. "At first she thought that it was going to turn into the same type of morning sickness that she had in the early pregnancy stages with George but it came obvious pretty quickly that this was worse. The Royals summoned Kate's doctor and were told that she was suffering a miscarriage."
Celebrity Dirty Laundry reported, citing sources, that the first person with whom Middleton and Prince William shared the news of the miscarriage was Queen Elizabeth.
"She encourage them to grieve and then move on knowing that they will give George a brother or sister when the time is right,” Celebrity Dirty Laundry reportedly said, citing sources.
After the miscarriage, Middleton reportedly told her husband that they will try again, and after a few days of rest, resumed her royal duties, which included the celebration of Prince George’s first birthday.
Hay told The Hollywood Gossip at the time: “Kate’s inner circle is buzzing with the news that she is expecting.
“I’ve heard from several different friends of theirs now that they’re saying that they think there’s going to be an official announcement in weeks.”
The news about Middleton's second pregnancy also found a mention in Vanity Fair’s August 2014 issue.
“As for speculation about when Prince George will have a sibling … there are rumors among the couple’s friends that they plan to try this summer,” reads the report.
