Kate Middleton is pregnant, and all evidence is pointing to her having a set of twins. We don’t know whether these twins will be girl-girl, boy-girl, or boy-boy. Reports are that the twin babies are girls and will be named Elizabeth and Margaret to further Kate and Prince William’s chances of superseding Camilla Parker-Bowles and Prince Charles on the throne. We do know that Kate’s Hyperemesis Gravidarum has been very severe this time around. . Last time, Kate had to be hospitalized but became stable fairly quickly. This time, she’s being treated at Kensington Palace [much to Camilla Parker-Bowles consternation], but it’s taking her longer to recover and get back on her feet. I think that’s additional evidence that she’s got two babies kicking around in her uterus as opposed to just one, but really, it’s too early for the royals to reveal this information.
We’re also hearing that the likeliest scenario for this Kate Middleton birth is twin baby girls, which would no doubt be a dream come true for Kate and Prince William. Ideally, they would name one of their daughters Diana [after Princess Diana], but it’s starting to look more and more like Queen Elizabeth is going to bulldoze herself into the naming situation. In fact, if Kate does give birth to twin girls, don’t be surprised to see them named Elizabeth and Margaret [for the Queen’s late sister]. It’s not narcissism as much as it is royal privilege – the Queen doesn’t see why the royals would have a problem with naming their kids after her and her sister, and to her, that’s the ultimate sign of respect.
And if it’s another set of boys, then god help them because Prince Charles will undoubtedly want to honor HIS name and call one of the boys Charles. Or maybe even Philip, but Kate and Will can probably kiss their free choice good-bye in naming their own kid/s.
