Is Kate Middleton expecting twins? The royal baby bump watch is in full swing, with rumors circulating that the Duchess of Cambridge will give birth to twin girls this spring. Clarence House announced on September 8 that the Kate and her husband Prince William are expecting a new addition to their family, but they did not reveal the gender of the baby.
News that she was once again suffering from extreme morning sickness has been front and center since the royal baby announcement was made, but the media is also focusing on her baby bump, which is already showing despite the fact that Middleton is only about 10 weeks pregnant.
“Prince William and Kate stepped out for a casual dinner together on Thursday September 11th at King’s Head Pub in Great Bircham, and you could already see Kate’s tiny baby bump.”
Gossip Cop speculates that little Prince George may be joined by two baby sisters when Kate gives birth in the spring, going so far as to say that the royal couple has already picked out two names for their supposed twins. The rumored names for Kate’s new babies, if she is truly carrying twin girls, are Margaret and Elizabeth. While the choice of these two baby girl names make perfect sense because Margaret was the Queen’s late sister and Elizabeth is the Queen’s first name, the royal couple have not confirmed any of the baby rumors.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Kate Middleton is only in her first trimester of pregnancy, making it a bit too early to find out the sex of the unborn baby — or babies. Most expectant moms have a gender-revealing ultrasound around 18-20 weeks.
When it comes to finding out if twins are on the way, an ultrasound can detect the multiples sooner, but the results aren’t always accurate. According to Baby Center, an an ultrasound scan is often done between 10 to 13 to determine the baby’s due date, and there is a chance that twins may be detected at that time.
“Ultrasound is almost foolproof at diagnosing twins, but the greater the number of babies, the less accurate it is at detecting how many babies there are.”
If Kate Middleton is indeed having twins, the baby bump watch will be even more exciting than it already is for those who follow the latest happening in the life of the royal family. Fans of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will likely know over the next few months if Kate is carrying a girl or a boy, or twins, but the Mirror reports that everyone will have to wait to see the new arrival (arrivals?) until well after winter ends.
“Although the due date has not been made public, William Hill have odds of 16/1 that the brother or sister to Prince George, who celebrated his first birthday in July, will be born on April 21 – the Queen’s birthday.”
Do you think Kate Middleton is carrying twins or is it far too early to speculate?
