The pregnancy speculation continues on after Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was seen in photos snapped in Scotland hiding what onlookers called a baby bump with a scarf indicating that she is pregnant.

Middleton and husband Prince William of Britain were attending a Thistle Service in Edinburgh, Scotland on Thursday, since the couple was named Earl and Countess of Strathearn, where she wore a pale yellow coatdress by Emilia Wickstead, according to Grazia. Duchess Catherine paired the dress with black pumps and curled Parisisal trimmed Whiteley hat.

But most noticeable was the small bag and tartan scarf Middleton used to hide her stomach in the flared dress, sparking rumors that the royals are expecting a baby. In photos taken from her right side, she is seen with a protruding stomach hidden underneath the plaid Strathearn scarf.

The rumors come days after In Touch magazine published its latest issue with Middleton on the cover, proclaiming it had exclusive photos of Kate's First Bump. The photos snapped on May 31 in London's Chelsea neighborhood show Middleton wearing a blue-grey belted dress showcasing a swelling in her stomach.

We thought at first it might be just the way her dress fell as she walked, a source told In Touch. But if you looked closely, it was a definite baby bump. It was prominent enough to cast a shadow below.

The source added that Kate's face and bottom are more rounded and has a glow in her cheeks, but that's speculation.

So far, the palace has not confirmed nor denied if Middleton is pregnant. However, back in May, Prince William told Katie Couric of ABC News that he'd like to have children with his wife of one year.

I'm just very keen to have a family and both Catherine and I, you know, are very much looking forward to having a family in the future, Prince William said.

When Couric asked if there was anything he would like to announce, the Prince responded, You won't get anything out of me. Tight lipped.
