Absolutely. The local Starbucks will make a fortune as we await "breaking news!!"

Who are these 'Friends'? They are saying William and Catherine want at least Three Children's.

The Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with a second child

Why would they? Kate wasn't treated for her morning sickness in the lindo wing before, so it would make more sense for them to be guarding the hospital she was in to treat the condition before - I believe king Edward.

However if you mean to guard a space for the birth... I'd say that's a bit too conservative! :)

I'm happy for the whole family and echo what others have said, it's nice to get a bit of good news for a change when one turns on the TV.

Having said that, I think overall it would be best if the Cambridges stop at 2. As we've seen countless times, it tends to be very difficult for 'spares' (I hate that term btw) to find their niche in modern royal families. One need only look at the struggles of Andrew and Edward, for example, which continue to a certain extent even today.

It must be an extra challenge in a family where one of the children is destined for such a high position. It's a situation in many of the royal European families. In a way, I think it might be nice for the "spares" to have at least one other person who knows what they're going through.

I agree with the other poster.

If it's a girl, the family will be complete.

If it's a boy, they will try for baby no. 3!

http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty...hree-children/

Wonder why everyone, (public), is again saying it's going to be a girl?

Surely a family is only 'complete' when the parents feel it is...?

If they want lots of children, [as some couples do] It is ENTIRELY up to them .

Coming from a happy and close family with three children, I always assumed Kate would only think her family is complete with the same, as many women in that situation do, I've noticed. Of course, it is one at a time, and this very early days for this pregnancy.

PS Carlota, the mention of the Lindo Wing was a joke, a jab at the media hype.

Hey, I saw a tweet from one of the Cafes near the Lindo last night that they can't wait to see all the great friends they made during the Wait for George among the Media in a few months from now. Can't remember who, but I do remember seeing it.

I'd be surprised, honestly, if they stopped at two. I see them with three, maybe even four children. Kate seemed to have really enjoyed being one of three, and she and William can obviously easily afford to have as many children as they want. Barring any unexpected illness, fertility problems, etc, I think they'll have a bigger family.

I also think the dynamics of just two children in this particular family could be hard. Harry seems to manage being the only "spare" with aplomb, but it could be a difficult situation to grow up in for a child with a different kind of personality.

I remember during their engagement interview them saying they wanted a large family....I would be surprised if they stopped with two children.

They can afford it. I hope they have as many children as they want and give sufficient time and emotional support. I hope her HG and their age doesn't impact their decision.

I don't.

I think people in their position should set a good example, and limit reproduction to two children.

What they can afford is moot. Even the wealthiest cannot buy more resources. Many problems in the world today are directly attributable to overpopulation.

Unfortunately people who should take heed and follow a "good example" seldom do. Frequently these are the kinds of people who don't even think of resources and overpopulation and, in fact, some of these people even consider each additional child a "resource".
