Kate Middleton's baby due date is fast approaching, and as the royal prepares to swap her official duties for a period of maternity leave, her latest pregnancy craving has been revealed.
According to insiders, the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge loves nothing more than a spicy Indian curry, cooked for her by friends in her hometown of Bucklebury, Berkshire.
It's thought Kate Middleton has been chowing down on a homemade vegetable dish, whipped up by friends Chan Shingadia and husband Hash, who own a shop close to her parent's £4.5m country pad.
'She likes my wife's cooking,' Hash said of the Duchess. 'We cook for her mum and family.'
While the couple declined to revealed exactly which dish Kate and her baby bump have been craving, they did hint that it was a vegetarian curry, packed with spices.
'I'm vegetarian, I only cook vegetarian curry,' Chan Shingadia told the Sun.
According to the pair, who were even invited to the royal's nuptials in 2011, Kate Middleton is a regular in their Spa store local to her family home, where she has returned frequently during her pregnancy.
'My wife made her curry a little while ago which she enjoyed,' Chan added. 'I think she came in one day and my wife was cooking upstairs. She said it smelled lovely, so my wife gave her some to take away.'
She added that mum-to-be Kate Middleton is 'very caring,' while Prince William is 'very down to earth'.
'We've really got to know Kate,' said Chan. 'She is really caring. She is like a human being, not a celebrity, and she is always a good customer. William is very down to earth.'
Earlier this year, it was revealed Kate Middleton had been feeding her cravings with all kinds of sugary treats, with a source telling American magazine US Weekly that Kate has ‘sugar on the brain’.
With the Duchess eating for two, the royal was reportedly reaching straight for ‘chocolate, cake and biscuits,' during the early stages of her pregnancy, and let go of her formerly strict diet.
We're glad to hear it!
