Speculation is mounting that the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant after she refused to eat peanut paste on her recent trip to Denmark.
The rumour mill went into overdrive on a string of U.S. websites when Kate, looking radiant in red, politely refused to sample the nut-based product during a visit to a UNICEF distribution centre.
According to reports, Kate gave her husband Prince William ‘a knowing look’ as he tucked into the sample, a staple of UNICEF packages handed out in areas suffering from famine.
The Danish Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Mary also sampled the paste while cameras caught Kate’s refusal.
Doctors recommend pregnant women avoid peanuts and peanut by products while expecting in order to prevent the development of allergies in their babies-to-be.
It is reported that Buckingham Palace ‘went out of their way to stress that she has no nut allergy whatsoever.’
This statement sent the rumour mill spinning with an string of U.S. websites fanning the flames.
The young royal couple were on their first joint humanitarian overseas trip to the Danish capital Copenhagen.
