Reports of the Duchess of Cambridge being pregnant with a second child has been doing the rounds for sometime now. After a close friend of Kate Middleton gave away the royal secret, reports indicate that Prince William and Middleton will be making an official announcement within a few weeks.

It is rumored that the Duke and the Duchess are keeping the pregnancy news under wraps as currently they are busy with the upcoming birthday of Prince George, and do not want the news of the second child to overshadow his birthday celebrations, according to Independent IE

The royal couple were reportedly planning to make the announcement in the next few weeks. However, a close friend of the Duchess already leaked the news.

Middleton pregnancy rumors found wings, after Jessica Hay, who attended Marlborough College with the Duchess, confirmed to an Australian tabloid that Middleton is indeed pregnant with the second child.

It has to be noted that Hay was the first person to confirm the pregnancy of Middleton back in 2012, when she was expecting Prince George, who will turn a year old on 22 July.

"Kate's inner circle are buzzing with the news that she is pregnant,' said Hay, according to Daily Mail. "I've heard it from several different friends of theirs now and they're saying that they think there's going to be an official announcement in weeks."

Evidence Suggest Kate Middleton is Pregnant Again

While the Royal family is yet to confirm the rumors of a second child, speculations claim that there are several telltale signs that suggest that Prince George may soon become an elder brother.

Odds Favor Second Child

While bookmakers have suspended betting on a possible pregnancy announcement this month, online gaming and betting company Ladbrokes confirmed to E!Online that many "are still convinced the young couple have been making the most out of their new home, and the odds suggest a second nursery is imminent". Punters further claim that Victoria and James are the top favorite names for the second child.

Middleton's Suspicious Wardrobe

Middleton and William were last seen in public at the Tour de France, during which she wore a green coat that was zipped till her neck, though it was a hot day, while with a clutch in her hand always tried to hide her tummy.

Middleton's Face and Hair

Reports indicate that Middleton's face has become more fuller of late, like it was when she was expecting Prince George. She has also been changing her her hair too often, which could be an attempt to hide the face's changes.
