Kate Middleton is allegedly pregnant. The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are reportedly expecting their third child together.

According to a report in Star magazine, Prince George broke the news to Queen Elizabeth and other family members during family tea after the Commonwealth Games baton. An alleged source said: "George and Kate practiced his announcement together the night before."

"It ended up being incredibly sweet. George approached his great-grandmother and exclaimed that he had a secret to share. The room went quiet when he said that 'mummy has a new bubby in her tummy!' She was delightedly hugging Kate, who was beaming from ear to ear," the insider added.

"William knew that as soon as he returned to England he'd be in for a serious scolding. He was on his way back and getting ready to face the music, but it's no surprise that all was forgiven and forgotten following George's absolutely adorable announcement," the source continued. "It was actually Kate who insisted he go on one last boys' vacation before focusing on the new baby. It's just a shame it looked like he was having too much fun and absconding from his duties. Who could have known he may have simply been celebrating his wife's third pregnancy?"

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.
