Days after reports that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are trying for royal baby No. 2, Kate Middleton may already be pregnant and struggling with her weight.
In Touch Weekly alleges that Middleton, 32, is already expecting a baby, but she’s suffering from anorexia. Jezebel reported the tabloid spoke to a “fitness expert” who estimated that Middleton weighs just 91 pounds -- but the “expert” admits she never saw the duchess in person.
The report says Middleton is apparently dealing with pregnancy and anorexia at the same time and because of her rapid weight loss, she’s hurting herself as well as the baby. Prince William, also 32, is also worried for Middleton’s “deteriorating condition” and trying to help her cope.

Rumors of Middleton’s pregnancy comes days after the British royal family appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair’s August 2014 issue.
The magazine’s royal correspondent Katie Nicholl said “royal insiders” claim the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will try for a second baby. “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.
The source, however, said the royal couple is focusing on raising Prince George, who will be one year old July 22, and allowing him to “enjoy a normal upbringing.” Part of that “normal” life for the future king is play dates with Middleton’s friends' children.
"They take George to play dates at the homes of friends, among them Kate’s old Marlborough friend Alice St. John Webster, who has a baby several months older than George,” Nicholl wrote.
