The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly told a British expat in Quebec City of her hopes of starting a family. Kate had been given a bouquet by Raffaela, two-year-old daughter of British expat David Cheater, 28, during a walkabout in Quebec City.
When Cheater wished the duchess well in her efforts to start a family, she thanked him, saying “Yes, I hope to”, reports the Daily Mail.
It is the first time Kate has spoken publicly about having children although her husband William said when they got engaged that they would like to have a family.
If she follows royal precedent she could be giving birth to an heir to the throne before April next year. William was born on June 21, 1982 around 11 months after his parents the Prince and Princess of Wales wed in July 1981.
And the Queen gave birth to Charles on November 14, 1948, just short of a year after marrying the Duke of Edinburgh on November 20, 1947.
