Kate jokes about having another baby during royal tour

By Hanna Fillingham

Could baby number three be on the way for Prince William and Kate? The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who are already proud parents to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, joked about having a third child after receiving a gift for newborns during their tour of Poland. The royal couple were gifted a cuddly toy designed to soothe small children during an event for startup tech companies in Warsaw, prompting the Duchess to turn to the Duke and say with a laugh, “We will just have to have more babies.”

Founder of the company, Julia Sielicka-Jastrzebska, revealed that Kate had made the light-hearted comment after learning that the toys were designed for very young children. "We gave the Duchess some presents for Prince George and Princess Charlotte," she said. Adding, she revealed: "She said they should have more babies, and they laughed."

During their visit to the event, held at The Heart, William and Kate received a cuddly toy to take home for George and Charlotte. Kate also received a T-shirt with the slogan "i'mperfect"; which was part of the company's campaign to encourage mothers not to feel the pressure to be flawless.

Before leaving, William and Kate also spent time with Polish students, who are currently studying in the U.K. When asked for a selfie, the Duke joked that he was "allergic" to them, but agreed to have a photograph. He then teased Kate, who too posed with some of the students, telling her: "You don't look as clever as the other three."

Throughout their tour, the royal couple plan to travel to Gdansk, Berlin, Heidelberg and Hamburg over the course of their trip. The visit is at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and will be Prince William and Kate's first official joint visit to Poland and Germany. The Duke of Cambridge made an official visit to Germany last summer.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: "The Duke and Duchess are very much looking forward to this tour and are delighted with the exciting and varied programme that has been put together for it. They have decided that their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will travel with them and we expect the children to be seen on at least a couple of occasions over the course of the week."
