Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is currently on the Royal Tour of Pakistan with her husband Prince William, but the trip has been rife with pregnancy speculation.
During the Royal Tour, even a faint outline of a 'baby bump' on the Duchess has led many people to believe the couple are expecting, but are yet to announce the news.
The rumours have not been helped by the fact that Kate and William have bought a tour doctor with them on the trip to Pakistan, something only the Queen and Prince Philip have been known to do in the past.
Royal correspondent Rebecca English tweeted: “The couple have also, for the first time, brought with them a tour doctor. He’s a friend of William’s from his days with East Anglia Air Ambulance."
Now, bookies have slashed odds on the Duchess giving birth to not just one baby, but twins, at some point next year.
The odds of Kate giving birth next year are currently 1/5, while the odds she has twins are 4/1.
According to Bookmakers.tv, odds were previously on 1/2 on the royal couple having a fourth baby, and have now been slashed to 1/5.
A spokesman for Bookmakers.tv said: "Normally it's only the Queen and the Prince of Wales who take a full time medic with them while travelling.
“So for the young and healthy Duke and Duchess to take one has whipped royal fans into a frenzy that she is pregnant once again - causing the odds to be slashed."
