It looks like Prince George won't have to wait too much longer for a little brother or sister. According to Radar Online, a longtime friend of the royal couple has confirmed that Kate Middleton is pregnant with her second child with Prince William. The news comes from Jessica Hay, who confirmed the Duchess' first pregnancy just weeks before the official announcement was made.

Kate’s inner circle are buzzing with the news that she is pregnant,” Hay told "New Day," an Australian publication. “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.”

It has not gone without notice that Kate may be displaying some typical pregnancy signs.

“Kate’s face is fuller like it was when she was first expecting George and she’s been changing her hair, which could be to disguise the fullness,” Hay said. “She has rosy cheeks, she’s letting her greys show again, and whenever she’s out in public she goes to great lengths to hold something over her tummy…”

Kate's friend believes, however, that the Duchess will keep this pregnancy as secretive as possible for now, especially considering how early the couple had to spill the beans during her first pregnancy.

Hay continued, “With George, they were forced to tell the world very early on that Kate was pregnant because she was rushed to the hospital with that awful hyperemesis gravidarum at around six or seven weeks.”

Hopefully this pregnancy will be less eventful than her first. Prince George's birthday is in just 8 days, and with all the pre-party planning that is undoubtedly happening at the moment, Kate is going to need all the energy she can get!
