Kate Middleton has decided to wait on having kids until next year according to the DailyMail so they can give their full attention to the Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics.
Prince William and Kate are putting off having a family until next year so they can focus on the Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics.
Despite hopes of a Jubilee baby, sources close to the couple say they are in â€˜no hurryâ€™ to start a family and want to make sure that 2012 is a success for the sake of the Queenâ€™s 60th anniversary celebrations.
â€˜Realistically there is not going to be time for a baby and they have said they are in no hurry. There is no urgent need for an heir â€“ we already have two,â€™ says a source. â€˜William and Kate want to take things in their own good time.â€™
The news comes as Clarence House confirmed that Kate, 30, will start solo official engagements next month, once William leaves for his first tour of duty in the Falkland Islands.
â€˜It will be a good distraction for her and take her mind off worrying about William,â€™ says the source. â€˜At the moment, starting a family is definitely on the backburner.â€™
The Duchess of Cambridge â€“ who married William last April â€“ is the Royal patron of The Art School, National Portrait Gallery, Action On Addiction, and East Angliaâ€™s Childrenâ€™s Hospices. She has also said she will volunteer with the Scout Association.
â€˜The Duchess will have a handful of engagements while the Duke is away,â€™ a spokesman says. â€˜She will visit all her patronages publicly at least once and continue to visit them privately. It will be a busy period.
â€˜The reason she chose so few charities is that she wants to get to know them intimately.â€™
William and Kate will be apart for six weeks in February and March, then they will gear up for the Jubilee weekend in June. In September or October they will tour Singapore, Malaysia, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu.
Aww, weÂ reallyÂ wanted to see that royal baby but it can wait, they haven’t even been married a year!
