(Newser) – Is Kate Middleton pregnant already? London's Sun has speculated that there could soon be the patter of little feet at the new larger digs of the princess and her prince. One hint? Kate turned down a taste of high-protein peanut paste with her hubby during a visit to a UNICEF distribution center. Government experts in Britain have long recommended that mums-to-be avoid peanuts because of allergy worries.

Us magazine, meanwhile, reports that Kate, 29, continually hugged and patted her flatish belly during the same visit as if it were already holding very precious cargo. "It was very odd," an observer tells the Daily Mail. "Kate would not stop touching her tummy. It was very noticeable. She continually patted it and held her hands against it. She must have been doing it without realizing, and at one point she had both her hands cradling her stomach." (Click to read all about Kate's new 20-room "apartment.")

What is wrong with the reporters come on sneak in to the Royal flush with a EPT kit! Might have a little more to go on. Be more accurate than patting her tummy or turning down peanut butter

peanut butter is high fat and high calorie, of course she's not going to touch any of it. she's very body and weight conscious and probably felt bloated that day, or felt like the dress made her look fat. it's not exciting enough to say "she thinks she's fat" it has to be "she's pregnant!"

The Royal Family in England are insignificant. Jesus accomplished more during his time on earth. Question: Does the Royal Family in England donate any part of their massive fortune to help the poor? Poverty is rampant all over the world.
