Every detail surrounding Kate Middleton’s pregnancy seems to be top priority for the millions of people around the world who are eagerly waiting the arrival of the royal baby. So what’s the latest development? While most pregnant women crave absurd things like pickles and ice cream, the classy Duchess of Cambridge apparently has been feigning for vegetable curry.
Us Weekly wrote that the 31-year-old has been “feasting” on the Indian dish. According to Chan Shingadia, who owns Bucklebury's Peach's Spar store, Middleton has been indulging in homemade versions of the dish that are prepared by his wife, Hash Shingadia, he told the celebrity news publication.
The curry is made out of spinach, black lentils, cauliflower, peas and potatoes. "It's not spicy," says Chan. "Very mild." The owner added that the pregnant Duchess comes in to buy her own curry, "but I imagine she shares the meals with [Prince William]. There is enough for more than just one to eat."
He told The Sun about the first time Middleton discovered his wife's cooking. He said, “My wife made her curry a little while ago, which she totally enjoyed. I think she came in one day and my wife was cooking upstairs. She said it smelled lovely, so my wife gave her some to take away.”
"She has been eating them during the pregnancy," Shingadia told Us Weekly. "The Duchess has come in several times for our curries, before she got married, and quite a few times afterwards." Middleton was recently at the store in the middle of June and even "took away [the dish] with some rice and naan bread.”

Those who are excited for the royal baby should keep this in mind: It seems to be a royal tradition to not name the baby as soon as he or she is born. Princess Diana didn’t name Prince William until a week after he was born, and Queen Elizabeth II took nearly a month to give Prince William a moniker.
