Showbiz Spy reports: Kate, 30, is ready to share “wonderful, happy news” next month, says Jessica Hay in an interview with New Idea magazine. Hay is said to be a “close friend” of Kate, who’s married to Prince William.
“They’re planning to make an announcement in December,” she said.
Hay attended the Royal couple’s wedding reception and shared a school dormitory with Kate at 14. She notes that Kate has gained a little bit of weight recently and that “William and Kate are focused on starting a family.” Hay says Kate is secretly hoping for a boy first and then a girl.
“It seems very traditional but of course they’ll be happy with two boys or two girls, they don’t want more,” she said.
“They’ve discussed it endlessly and don’t want to be older parents.”
Meanwhile, Kate and William are planning to set up their own powerbase at Kensington Palace.
According to a report from Britain’s Mail on Sunday, the pair will create their own court in time for Prince Harry‘s return from Afghanistan in January
Kate and William, both 30, have a cottage on the site but will soon set up home in Apartment 1A, which used to be occupied by Princess Margaret.
The move could mean William William is preparing to leave his role as a search-and-rescue pilot at RAF Anglesey to begin a life of Royal duty with his wife.
“The new set-up will be known as the Household Office of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, and will be transferred from St James’s Palace in stages,” a source said.
“Prince Charles has agreed to fund the private office out of his existing income from the Duchy of Cornwall and has even offered to foot the bill for Kate’s not inconsiderable working wardrobe.
“The irony is Kensington Palace is where Diana fashioned her powerbase after her divorce from Charles.
“There is no rift with Charles, just a recognition the time has come for the boys and Kate to create their own full identity.”
