Duchess Kate jokes: “We will just have to have more babies!”

Royal tour of Poland

Prince William and Duchess Kate have just arrived in Poland – with wee Prince George and adorable Princess Charlotte – and there is already chatter of more royal babies!

More babies?!

It all started when a well-wisher handed Kate a newborn-appropriate gift. The Duchess thanked her and joked, “We will just have to have more babies!”

The exchange was shared on Twitter by the Daily Mirror’s Royal Correspondent, Victoria Murphy, who later noted that more babies are probably not really on Kate’s mind. When asked if she thought the Duchess’s comment meant the pitter patter of little feet might be on the cards at the palace, Victoria said, “I actually think the opposite! I expect she joked about it because it’s not something they’re serious about but never say never!

Of course, many are beside themselves with delight at the prospect of another royal kiddo, and ignoring this expert correspondent view, fingers firmly planted in ears.

Royal bear

In case you’re curious, the gift in question was a Whisbear, a sleep-assisting toy that hums and makes womb-like sounds that help lull newborns to sleep.

It was designed by two Polish mums and is apparently super popular – and helpful. The company sent the young royals a Whisbear for Charlotte two years ago, and gifted them another as they accepted an entrepreneurial award from Kate yesterday.

It was then that she joked about having another baby to make use of the device.

Not so curious George

The baby gift was not the only thing people were chattering about when it comes to the Royal tour.

Prince George was attracting extra attention, apparently a little daunted by the prospect of setting foot in Poland. The little royal required some expert coaxing to get him off the jet and onto the tarmac. Once he’d officially set foot in Poland he appeared to activate the Royal Pout and needed some encouragement from his dad.

So darn cute. We think everyone who’s cared for a preschooler can relate to these reluctant George pics!
