  • If the rumours are true, a heavily pregnant Kate Middleton could be heading to China...

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been invited to make their first official trip to China next year. However, if they went in the early part of 2015, Kate could be up to eight months pregnant with their second child.

    Clarence House said no plans were in place yet and it was too early to confirm whether the pair would travel to the country or not. The Sunday Telegraph reported that China were hoping the trip could improve relations between the two countries, which are strained due to Prince Charles’s friendship with the Dalai Lama, who is the exiled spiritual leader of Tibet.

    Past trips to China haven’t always gone to plan for the Royals, as Charles and Diana were reported to have called officials ‘ appalling old waxworks’ and talked of the “ridiculous rigmarole” of meeting then Chinese President Jiang Zemin. Even The Queen referred to Bejing as ‘ghastly’. Let’s hope Wills and Kate can smooth things over this time…
