Historically, most royal brides have been pregnant within a year of the wedding, but Kate Middleton and Prince William have reportedly decided to put off baby-making until 2013, their second year of marriage. Some rumors have suggested that the Queen ordered them not to have a baby this year, which would overshadow her Diamond Jubilee. But a new report claims that there could be other reasons why the two aren't getting pregnant now.
According to Star (via HollywoodLife.com), the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge haven't had sex in four months! One reason for the lack of royal lovin': They are just too busy to get busy.
"More often than not [for Kate], it's a case of off to bed for the night on her own while her husband is working," a "source close to the couple" tells the mag of William's military duties, which include 24-hour shifts.
Meanwhile, some royal watchers theorize that Kate simply doesn't want to get pregnant (even though, you know, that's kind of her job).
"My guess is that she doesn't want to spoil that gorgeous figure," William: The Rebel Prince author Nicholas Davies tells Star.
Considering this story originated in Star, there's a pretty good chance it's just totally made up. (How would anyone even know if these two are getting it on or not? Can you really imagine Kate discussing William's bedroom antics with her girlfriends Sex and the City-style?) But at the same time ... There were reports shortly after these two got engaged claiming that Kate had stopped putting out because she didn't want to get pregnant before the wedding, and if she cut him off once before, she could do it again (even though it's her "royal duty" to produce an heir, so that's probably another reason why this report's not true). Plus, Kate has gotten painfully thin since the engagement and wedding, so she probably is worried about pregnancy weight gain, even if it's just a bare minimum 20 pounds or so. And these two give off no sexual heat around each other whatsoever. Granted, part of that is because they can't exactly be making out and groping each other in public. But they don't have the same passionate vibe that Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy had, and you know those two couldn't keep their hands off each other. So all of that taken together kind of makes you go "hmmm." But still, it's Star, so it's probably BS.
What do you think? Are Kate Middleton and Prince William stuck in a sexless marriage? Is she afraid to get pregnant? Sound off in the comments!
