Is the Duchess of Cambridge expecting her second child? Hubby Prince William rather alluded to a second pregnancy while chatting with Cynthia Read--a former Brit who emigrated to New Zealand a few years ago. Read knitted a merino wool shawl for Prince George which was New Zealand's official gift to the baby when he was born eight months ago.

"You might have to make another one soon!" several accounts report Prince William as saying to Read.

Cynthia Read believed the prince was serious when he made the comment.

The notion became a bit more questionable when Prince William and Kate Middleton visited a nearby vineyard. Some reports indicate she only indulged in a very few sips while others say she was actually drinking the wine.

Central Otago Pinot Noir Ltd. chairwoman Lucie Lawrence, who escorted the Duchess of Cambridge at Amisfield Winery, said Kate had "six or seven" tastes.

"She was drinking it. She really enjoyed drinking the Pinot Noir," Lawrence said.

Later in the day Kate joined William on a wild jet boat ride on the Shotover River, where they raced through shallow water at speeds of up to 53 miles per hour. The duchess likely wouldn't have taken part in such a wild ride if she was with child--would she?

The duke and duchess enjoyed many formal events in New Zealand this past week, including the unveiling of a new portrait of Queen Elizabeth.

Prince William and Kate Middleton also engaged in some solo activities while in New Zealand. She paid a visit to the children and families at a local hospice, as depicted in the video clip above. The hospice houses both terminally ill children and adults, and the families grieving their imminent passings. Prince William toured the local Pacific Aerospace plant.

Is it possible that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their second child? Prince George is already 8 months old, and they likely won't want to raise him as an only child.
