Don’t put so much pressure on them to become parents

ALICE ASHCROFT: Bird migration is a wondrous phenomenon

Have your say

The rumour mill has gone into overdrive this week, suggesting that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are about to announce they’re expecting their first bundle of joy.

The couple were on a whirlwind tour of Singapore when the Prince was asked by a young fan how many children he’d like. To which he replied, instantly, ‘two’.

The couple were then snapped looking mighty happy as they had a toast with a glass of Champagne – topped with water.

Whatever happens and however many children they go on to have, I wish them well. They’re a great asset to the royal family.

But I do think people should stop putting so much pressure on them to become parents.

They’re still young!
