Kate Middleton is allegedly pregnant with her third child. The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are reportedly expecting a baby girl.

According to a report in Star magazine, the royal couple are planning to name their daughter after Princess Diana. A source told the magazine: "Kate knows how much Diana meant to William, and indeed, the citizens of England. It will be the perfect way to show their affection for such a beloved icon."

Kate has been repeatedly hit by pregnancy rumours since the birth of her second child in May 2015. Meanwhile, Prince William talked about fatherhood during an interview with the BBC's Nick Witchell. He said: "I love my children the same way any father does and I hope George loves me the same way any son does to his father, so we are very normal in that sense."

"And you know, George, there'll be a time and a place to bring George up and understand how he fits in the world. But right now, it's just a case of keeping a secure, stable environment around him and showing him as much love as I can as a father," the Duke of Cambridge said.

"I'm concentrating very much on my role as a father. I'm a new father and I take my duties and my responsibilities to my family very seriously and I want to bring my children up as good people with the idea of service and duty to others as very important. But if I can't give my time to my children as well, I worry about their future," the 34-year-old royal added.
