Kate Middleton has been in news for all the wrong reasons of late, and the one that has caught more attention was reports of her expecting twin girls. The royal couple has been keeping mum all this while but let their action do the talking on Thursday by taking alcohol.

Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton had hard drinks on Thursday while touring Scotland's Glenturret distillery, known for its Famous Grouse whiskey, reported E Online. The report added that William had The Black Grouse Alpha while the Duchess of Cambridge had weaker blends called The Snow Grouse and The Naked Grouse, which have 40 percent proof. 

Having alcohol is a strong hint that Middleton is not expecting her second child, as drinking during pregnancy is said to be unhealthy. According to Meditech, consuming "alcohol during pregnancy is one of the major causes of mental retardation in the United States" and could cause great harm to an unborn child.

Life & Style magazine had earlier reported that the Duchess of Cambridge had been staying away from appearing in public due to medical issues related to her alleged pregnancy. Insiders reportedly told the magazine that she has started suffering the same morning sickness she had while pregnant with her first child, Prince George, who is 10 months old now.

The royal couple hit the headlines a few days ago after a photo of Kate Middleton that exposes her bare butt was published on German newspaper, Bild.de. The picture taken during the couple's Royal Tour to Australia in April has the dress of the Duchess being blown up by a gust of wind and ended up revealing her bare butt while walking towards a helicopter with her husband Prince William.

According to Page Six, the picture was sold to a publication house overseas after British media houses refused to publish it. The royal family, which is usually against publication of photos with bad taste, is yet to respond to the new development.

It may be mentioned that there were several instances of Kate's dress being blown up. She suffered wardrobe malfunction during her recent Royal Tour of New Zealand and at the Calgary International Airport in 2011.
