(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.")
