Kate Middleton Baby Bump Nickname Was Named After Which Fruit? New Duchess Of Cambridge Biography Reveals Details Of Prince George Arrival

Shine reports. According to the excerpt, Kate Middleton’s nickname for her baby bump was “our little grape.” How sweet! “The Future Queen” includes multiple interviews with sources close to the royal family and palace insiders, Yahoo! Shine reports. Many of the details of Kate Middleton, or the Duchess of Cambridge, reveal that she is quite a normal young woman, both anxious and excited about the birth of her first child, the website notes. Yet other details remind us commoners that Kate Middleton is also second in line to Britain’s throne and mother of the third. Here are our favorite interesting tidbits about Kate Middleton from the Vanity Fair excerpt of “The Future Queen,” as reported by Yahoo! Shine: To prepare for the baby’s arrival, Prince William dug his old toys out of the attic at their cottage at Kensington Palace including his favorite teddy bear named, “Wombat.” The clothing and baby furniture purchased before the birth were in “gender neutral shades of cream,” indicating the couple truly didn’t know what their firstborn’s sex would be. However, Kate suspected it might be a little boy because it kicked so much. The first person to learn about the birth, outside of the attendants at the hospital, was Queen Elizabeth whom Will called on an encrypted phone. While Kate appeared perfectly groomed and poised when she came out of the hospital, Tucker later reported that she was very emotional after the birth and deeply nervous to face the press. The couple did not hire a baby nurse but relied on Kate’s mother, Carole, for assistance in caring for newborn George. “William said he didn’t want a nanny or nurse coming in doing shifts…,” said a friend. Carole and Kate’s father, Michael, took turns helping the new parents, and Carole made fruit smoothies for breakfast, nourishing meals, and kept Kate supplied with her favorite granola bars. When Kate and Will returned to their farmhouse on Anglesey, she retained only a housekeeper to help her with cleaning and grocery shopping.
