Stop the presses, because Prince William has actually discussed the babies he will one day have with wife Kate. Specifically, he would like two of them, Wills said today while the couple was touring Singapore as part of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.
“Someone asked him how many children he would like to have, and he said he was thinking about having two,” a student tells the AP.
William has never before specifically numbered his future children, although an heir and a spare isn’t unheard of in royal circles. And the heir might already be on the way, because Kate—gasp—ignored her glass of wine at a banquet in Singapore yesterday, the Daily Beast reports. Even more suspicious, she—not once, but twice—toasted the queen with the water she drank instead.
Such a thing is just not done in royal toasts, the Beast notes, adding that rumors of a royal pregnancy have been coming in recently even before the wine incident. The New York Daily News also claims the duchess “showed what may be a hint of a baby bump” in Singapore, and Star magazine recently ran a photo of one of her dresses that had been let out an inch as proof that she must be with child.
