July 14, 2011: After a whirlwind tour of Southern California and Canada, the Chicago Sun Times, in today’s updated report, says that Prince William and Kate are anxious to have a family of their own “right away.” With media talk that the newlyweds are withdrawing from public functions for a while, the speculation is that the two might be hiding under the covers. Keep in mind that the newlyweds have had a nine-year relationship, as such, it is time. They apparently want to focus on their life together now except for several royal functions and William’s work.
The newspaper says that the wanting children right away is in keeping with reports from Palace insiders:
“. . . William and Kate will be concentrating on starting a family — right away. . . .
“They understand their responsibility to provide royal heirs, but — beyond all that — this is a loving couple who are anxious to have children. . . . ” Prince William and Kate ‘anxious to have children,’ says insider
The New Yorker cover — the couple hiding under the covers
As I reported earlier, even before the royal couple walked down the aisle at Westminster Abby, the New Yorker magazine cover pictured the couple in bed with covers pulled to their eyes while an anxious press and Queen waited for an heir. CBS News was reporting baby rumors in early July. It seems that with their glorious success in Canada the couple managed to get away for a private four hours which fueled speculation that perhaps it was to concentrate on something “Made in Canada” that we would hear about in nine months.
People Magazine reminded us last week that “while touring Quebec City, Kate, 29, was presented with a bouquet by Raffaela, 2, who was with her father David Cheater, 28. [who later noted].
“Kate said to me, ‘What a beautiful daughter you have.’ ” The Duchess laid her hand on the youngster’s head and smiled at the little girl.
He added: “When I said to her I wished her and William well with starting their own family, she said, ‘Yes, I hope to.’ “Kate Greets Children, Talks Hopes of Having Her Own – People
The new home at Kensington Palace
The couple has a two bedroom apartment at Kensington Palace that Princess Diana encouraged her children to have as close to normal a childhood as possible. Princess Catherine seems to be following in those footsteps.Princess Catherine is already making news as a dutiful wife with a mind of her own — she has done away with the Lady-in-Waiting position. Although she is moving into the childhood home of her husband, she seems to be at ease with whatever pleases him.
As for the babies — time will most certainly tell!
