Duchess to take longer maternity leave than she did with Prince George

With the arrival of the new Royal baby imminent, Kate will be taking a longer break for maternity leave than she did with her first baby

The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to take longer maternity leave this time around, in order to enjoy the bond between her two children. 

After the birth of Prince George, Kate was back on the Royal scene within a couple of months, but a source has told People magazine that this time round she will be spending more time at home with her baby. 

Kate has made her last public appearance before the birth of baby number two, which we are eagerly awaiting. She recently confirmed the baby was due mid to late April - so the next Royal baby could make its appearance any day now.
