Kate Middleton Sparks Pregnancy Rumors

Because she didn't eat peanuts, people now believe Kate Middleton just might be pregnant. Kate ignited rumors that she's expecting her first child during a Wednesday trip to a UNICEF distribution center.

Along with Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge visited Copenhagen, Denmark, to get a first hand experience of how UNICEF contributes to putting an end to famine in East Africa. The couple were joined by Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark, who kind of looks like Kate Middleton, by the way.

Anyway, part of their UNICEF experience included eating food products that the organization sends to those African countries.

When directors passed around a pouch of peanut paste, everyone had a taste. Everyone except for Kate, who politely turned them down. She then gave her husband a knowing look. You know, as if to say, "Dude, I'm pregnant."

Pregnant women aren't supposed to eat peanuts, in case you didn’t know. Doctors recommend pregnant women to avoid peanuts and peanut byproducts while expecting because they can develop allergies in the fetus.

The Sun also reported that the Palace "went out of their way to stress that [Kate] has no nut allergy whatsoever."

An insider said: "The Duchess does not have a nut allergy, nor is it like her to appear rude. The only explanation is that she is pregnant and has been told — like many expectant mothers — to avoid nuts."

But a senior source said: "Pregnancy is not the only explanation."

Which is a good point. There could also be the possibility that, you know, Kate doesn't like eating peanut paste out of a bag.

"The Duchess is still new to appearing in front of the cameras at official events. It is perfectly plausible that she may not yet feel comfortable eating while the cameras are focused on her. This is not the first time she's turned down food while under the spotlight."

On a side note, how many Krispy Kreme donuts do they throw out each day? Yet, this is what we're sending hungry people? Bags of peanut glue? Come on.

Anyway, if Kate is indeed having a baby, this kid is destined to one day rule England, even if it's a girl. The Commonwealth recently changed its royal law to give the firstborn daughter the throne even if she has younger brothers.

"The idea that a younger son should become monarch instead of an elder daughter simply because he's a man, or that a future monarch can marry someone of any faith except a Catholic -- this way of thinking is at odds with the modern countries that we’ve all become," British Prime Minister David Cameron said.
