Reports are suggesting that The Duchess of Cambridge will 'announce' she's pregnant in a matter of weeks. Fair play to her given George isn't even 12 months yet.

The source of this Royal rumour, speaking via, is one of Kate's mates, Jessica Hay. In a conversation with Australia's New Day, Hay said: "Kate’s inner circle are buzzing with the news that she is pregnant. I’ve heard it from several different friends of theirs now and they’re saying that they think there’s going to be an official announcement in weeks." So, really, gossip knows no class.

As if Jessica hand't blabbed enough, she felt the need to royally (apologies) scrub her name from future Christmas Card lists with the following: "Kate’s face is fuller like it was when she was first expecting George and she’s been changing her hair, which could be to disguise the fullness. She has rosy cheeks, she’s letting her greys show again, and whenever she’s out in public she goes to great lengths to hold something over her tummy."

This reminds me of a time an ex-boyfriend sent me a text a number of years back saying "Are you pregnant? Congratulations!" When I replied in the negative, he said "Wooops, a friend saw you, thought you were."

Some friend.
