As reported here yesterday: Kate Middleton news: Royal baby buzz, parenting, and a banished BFF? (Video)
Dec. 2, 2012. The baby buzz is not going away.The tabloids are talking about parenting and a Christmas baby announcement. The gossip all stems from a former school friend of Kate’s, Jessica Hay, as Entertainmentwise and Female First reported today, Dec. 2. 2012. We have been hearing about baby news ever since the royal wedding, but now it is heating up. One would guess that the more Hay blabs, the closer she gets to banishment from the inner circle. In fact do we even know that she is privy to such secret information?
This from Entertainmentwise
Jessica Hay is the childhood friend of Kate, who last month claimed the Duchess of Cambridge was already pregnant, alleging that the Royals would make an announcement this month. Now Kate’s former school friend has told Life & Style magazine that she expects the couple to be the main caregivers for any future children:
“William is very much like his mother Princess Diana and will definitely be a hands-on dad and not rely heavily on nannies to raise his and Catherine’s children.”
“They both try to be as normal as possible in their private lives and that of course is going to continue when they have children.” Prince William And Kate Middleton ‘Will Be Hands-On Parents’
Anxious to have a family
The baby buzz began heating up, as I reported on July 20, 2011, when Prince William and Kate officially moved into their new home at Kensington Palace. It was here that Princess Diana raised William and Harry. Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, seems to embody the spirit of the late Princess.

As reports have noted: “They understand their responsibility to provide royal heirs, but — beyond all that — this is a loving couple who are anxious to have children. . . . ”Prince William and Kate ‘anxious to have children,’ says insider.”
