KATE Middleton and Prince William burst into tears when they found out they were expecting their first child together.
The British royals will welcome the third-in-line to the British throne next year and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — who tied the knot in April 2011 — are over the moon.
“William and Catherine are absolutely overjoyed with becoming parents. It’s the most thrilling news to end a wonderful year on,” said Catherine’s friend Jessica Hay.
“Catherine’s been steadily putting on weight since April this year and hasn’t been drinking for a good few months – they’ve been preparing all summer. It was decided that they’d try at the tail end of the royal tour in September and that’s what happened.
“The difference in Catherine is already tremendous. Her face is already fuller, she really is glowing.”
Meanwhile, William has vowed to move Heaven and Earth to shield his expectant wife from the media furor created by the long awaited news of her pregnancy.
“William is excited and happy beyond belief,” a source said.
“William has always had a distrust, bordering on outright loathing, for the press.
“It all stems from his childhood — watching the way his mother was built up and then torn down by the media and ultimately, he strongly believes to this day, hounded to her death by over-zealous paparazzi.
“He has vowed to do everything in his power to protect Kate from the media frenzy surrounding her pregnancy and Heaven help anyone who crosses the line. At William’s behest the Queen instructed Palace bigwigs to individually call all of the chiefs at the British newspapers immediately following the pregnancy announcement and warn them, in no uncertain terms, that if any lines are crossed, any intrusive paparazzi shots are purchased and published, or if Kate feels hounded in anyway there will be hell to pay.
“William was deeply hurt and angered by the topless photo scandal Kate was forced to endure over the summer, and has made it crystal clear that, make no mistake, he will not allow his wife to be subjected to such blatant intrusion and humiliation ever again.
“William is well aware that he leads a public life. And he is more than willing and accepting to dedicate his life to the British people and lead a life of public service and duty. However, as much as William accepts his responsibilities he still firmly asserts that he and his wife also have the right to demand a degree of privacy.
“They can not be expected to live in a fishbowl 24-7 and William is determined to make sure both he and Kate are afforded time off from public life and media scrutiny to live their lives together with at least a sprinkling of normalcy — this has just become even more of an ingrained belief since learning he is to become a father.”[imagebrowser id=1133]
