Word from the Palace has it that Kate Middleton got the shock of her life when she recently learned that just ten weeks after suffering a miscarriage she was indeed pregnant with her second child. While Prince William has vowed to make sure that pregnant Kate Middleton is calm and that her busy life remains as stress-free as possible these next 6 months, The Princess has no intention of letting Queen Elizabeth down. According to the Sept. 8th print edition of GLOBE Magazine Queen Elizabeth was originally supposed to travel to Malta on Sept. 20 and 21st to take part in activities celebrating the island’s 50 years of independence from Britain but she has opted out of the trip.
Sources tell GLOBE that despite Kate being pregnant with her ‘Miracle Baby’ Queen Elizabeth called Kate Middleton personally to ask her to fill in for her on the solo trip. This is the perfect opportunity for Kate to prove that she is ready to step up and be Queen beside Prince William’s King once the power is officially passed next year. Elizabeth trusted no one else to handle this solo engagement and Kate isn’t about to disappoint her as she knows what a huge test it will ultimately be. Kate has to show up and graciously get the job done while making it look easy. There is no way that even morning sickness will keep a pregnant Kate from traveling to the Mediterranean island.
It makes perfect sense that Queen Elizabeth would begin to give her next intended queen various tasks to instill faith in her, right? Prince William believes that stress ultimately played a part in Kate’s miscarriage earlier this summer. Do you think that he wants her to follow through with royal engagements now that she is pregnant again or does he instead wish that she would sit out the next few months until they are sure that the second child pregnancy is going to progress?
