Kate Middleton is already pregnant with her second child, according to bookmakers.
As Prince George gets set to celebrate his first birthday next week, reports are circulating that Kate Middleton and Prince William may already be expecting a new brother or sister for the 11 month-old future king.
Bookmakers Coral announced this morning that they have stopped taking bets on an imminent royal baby announcement, after an overnight rush of online punters caused bosses to believe new information had been leaked from the palace.
‘With Prince George’s first birthday just around the corner, the latest gamble strongly indicates that he could soon be joined by a little brother or sister,’ predicted a Coral spokeswoman.
The odds had been slashed from 10-1 to 50-50 before betting was closed altogether last night.
‘In fact, there could even be double celebrations in the Windsor household next Tuesday,’ the spokeswoman speculated further.
