LONDON: The Duchess and the Queen might have some more responsibilities than before in just a few short months while William is away.
Earlier today it was revealed that Duchess Kate is pregnant. After a year of speculation and creepy bump-watching, the Royals announced it to great fanfare and even more speculation and creepy bump-watching.
It began when Kate was hospitalized for hyperemesis gravidarum, or morning sickness, that can accompany pregnancy. She is expected to remain there for a few days, with William at her side.
But here's the real 'kicker' (baby puns!): the morning sickness is much more common when the mother is expecting more than one bundle of
"The Royal family often looks up to the courage and strength of Nadya Suleman" said one aide, referring to the famous "Octomom", "So Kate has been encouraged to try for nine kids, just to position herself above the commoner."
NINE KIDS! That's a LOT of diapers.
Other aides also confirmed that Kate is expecting nine, though their genders won't be known for a few more months. This means that her appearances in public, topless or covered, will be limited for the remainder of her pregnancy.
"William and Kate are also planning to star in a reality TV show on TLC about the difficulties of raising kids in a Royal environment. The show will be called, 'William and Kate plus Nine'." said the aide.
As for which one becomes king or queen, the birth order does not apply, as it would be unfair to the other eight that weren't lucky enough to be closest to the exit. Instead, the royal family will need to turn to a 347-year old text for the solution.
"Yes, they will be following the procedures," laughed the aide, "When the nine kids reach the age of 13, they will fight one another with swords to determine the rightful heir to the throne."
