Royal Baby Number Two? Prince William Hints At A Sibling For Prince George

Section: Celebrity Mums

There’s been some speculation that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are trying for baby number two and Prince William’s added fuel to the fire with a possibly revealing comment…

Prince William has hinted that Prince George may soon have a brother or sister.

William made the comment to well wisher Cynthia Read after being gifted with a wool shawl she had been commissioned by the New Zealand government to make for George. The Duke thanked Cynthia, saying, ‘You might have to make another one soon!’

‘The way William said it was like he was dropping a hint, letting me in on a secret,’ Cynthia, 61, said.

And when asked if she thought that William was suggesting that a brother or sister for George would be on the way soon, she responded, ‘Maybe. I couldn’t possibly comment! Obviously if I’m asked to do another one, I would be honoured, but we’ll wait and see.’

Last month William made clear that he and Kate aren’t planning on expanding their family just yet but his comment will no doubt fuel pregnancy rumours.

William dropped the hint during a public appearance in Cambridge, New Zealand, as part of his and Kate’s royal tour around the country. The couple is travelling with George in tow – who had his first public playdate a few days ago.
