The world is waiting for the next heir to the British throne, making it difficult for Kate Middleton to appear in public without sparking pregnancy rumors.
The Duchess was recently photographed with Prince William and the rest of the Royals at a charity concert in London, seemingly covering her belly with her clutch. Onlookers reported that Middleton constantly held her small black purse in front of her stomach throughout the night, causing many to speculate that she may be hiding a growing baby bump, Us Weekly reports.
Middleton first fueled pregnancy rumors in November when she refused to eat peanut paste while she and William visited a UNICEF distribution center in Denmark. It is often advised that pregnant women avoid peanut products to prevent allergies in their babies, and the palace did not exactly end this rumor by simply announcing that Middleton is not allergic to peanuts.
