Jessica Hay, a "friend" of the Duchess of Cambridge who was the first to confirm that Kate was pregnant with Prince George in 2012, has confirmed to Australia’s New Day over the weekend that the princess is indeed expecting her second child with her husband, The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William.
While there has been no official announcement from Clarence House, the insider claims that those close to the Duchess are in the know about the pregnancy.
“Kate’s inner circle is buzzing with the news that she is expecting,” Hay told the Hollywood Gossip. “I’ve heard from several different friends of theirs now that they’re saying that they think there’s going to be an official announcement in weeks.”

Hay says her friend from school — who welcomed her son, Prince George, last July — has noticeably changed in appearance in recent weeks.
“Kate’s face is fuller like it was when she was first expecting George,” said Hay. “She has rosy cheeks, she’s letting her greys show again and whenever she’s out in public, she goes to great lengths to hold something over her tummy."

Middleton had to be hospitalized with an acute form of morning sickness during her first trimester with George back in December 2012. Hay reports that Middleton is feeling just fine this second time around.

Just a week ago, royal correspondent Kate Nicholl confirmed to Vanity Fair that Middleton, who graced the magazine’s August 2014 cover with Prince George and Prince William, was trying for baby number two.
“As for speculation about when Prince George will have a sibling … there are rumors among the couple’s friends that they plan to try this summer,” said the magazine.
