PREGNANT Kate Middleton has been craving lavender shortbread.
The British beauty — who has been suffering from acute morning sickness throughout her pregnancy, which was announced earlier this month — has been overloaded with boxes of the calorific treats, which are a traditional anti-sickness cure.
“A lot of women develop cravings during pregnancy and Kate is no exception. She has got a real taste for these biscuits,” a source said.
“Lavender is said to have healing properties, so it is not such a wacky food to nibble on when you’re pregnant.”
The royal family have been sending Catherine – who was known as Kate Middleton prior to her and Prince William’s nuptials last year — boxes of the sugary snacks, which are sold by her father-in-law Prince Charles‘ Duchy Originals organic food brand and London-based department store Fortnum & Mason.
“Kate has been craving scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream,” said a source.
“She can’t get enough of it. And she washes it down with a cup of old-fashioned English-breakfast tea.
“Some women eat raw onions when they’re pregnant, but Kate’s joked that she’s keeping it classy. It’s just a shame she can’t keep her food down for long!” [imagebrowser id=1187]
