Just a few short weeks since Prince William and his sweetheart Kate Middleton formally announced their engagement to an adoring public, some media outlets are today that writing that the couple could have their first child as early as this time next year.
The speculation has arisen after comments form sources close to the royals revealed that The Queen and William’s father, Prince Charles have placed large responsibility to deliver them an heir to the throne as soon as possible.
‘They’re planning to try for a baby as soon as they’ve married,’ a source told British magazine, Now.
‘They’re determined to make the Queen’s dream come true and they know it’s up to them to make the Royal Family cool again.
‘They hope the wedding and a baby will lift the spirit of Britain.’
How a baby and wedding would make the royal family ‘cool’ remains to be seen but it will certainly give the media plenty of points of interest and merchandisers will undoubtedly be preparing royal wedding collectable mugs, plates, t-shirts, toy taxis, coins and the obligatory union jack hat with crass royal wedding photo glued to the front.
Do you think it’s too early in their relationship to discuss babies? Or should they make their families happy and deliver an heir? Let us know by leaving a comment.
