Let’s put those pregnancy rumors to rest. There is no baby brother or sister on the way for little Prince George. As you read here yesterday, the rumors started with an alleged family feud over who would take over the monarchy. It supposedly triggered Prince William to begin pushing Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, to have another baby so as to convince the Queen to choose them over his father and Camilla Parker-Bowles. But it became quite clear yesterday and today that there is no baby on the way. Entertainmentwise on Feb. 27, 2014 reported, "Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge Expected To Have Second Baby in 2015.” And this was reported by Royal Central on Feb. 26, 2014, “Prince William and Kate, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tipped to have second child in 2015.”
Quite ironically even the betting group Coral Sports reported back in July of 2013, “Bookies say sibling for Prince George will arrive in 2015.”
What about the rumors?
As reported here earlier, there are three reasons to be suspicious of the rumors.
First: The gossip started before Christmas with the alleged feud as noted in Celebrity Dirty Laundry, “Kate Middleton and Prince William Fight Over Baby Number Two.”
Second: The story originated with Star magazine which essentially flunked Gawker’s accuracy rating in “Which Tabloids Lie the Most?” Only 9 percent of their cover stories turn out to be true. Their overall accuracy rate was just 12 percent.
Third: Gossip Cop pointed out when the story first broke in December: "Kate Middleton Is NOT “Pregnant Again.” And they received confirmation from a royal spokesman. Here is the full story in “Kate Middleton news: The truth about her pregnancy gossip.”
