The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set for 2020 to be a “busy” year.
With Christmas upon us, this time of year always tends to be quiet for the royal family as they take a break from royal duties to enjoy the festive period.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are believed to have held a briefing at Kensington Palace this week where they “gave a number of new announcements” that would be given over Christmas.
Speaking on his royal podcast ABC’s The Heir Pod, royal correspondent Omid Scobie said: “Next year is going to be busy for the Cambridges.
“Expect royal announcements over the holidays, which I think is a slight break away from tradition.”
He continued to say: “There was a briefing at Kensington Palace just this week where they gave us a number of new announcements that will be coming out over the holiday period.
“It’s a smart decision, it’s a quiet time of the year. It is a great time to announce things.”
He went on to say that next year was going to be especially big for the Duchess of Cambridge, who is said to be “really focused” on her “early years development”.
One fan commented on Twitter: “Another mini Cambridge perhaps”, while another wrote: “Another baby?”
Of course, this is all speculation from royal fans desperate to see the Cambridge family expand.
Other people have guessed Kate could be taking on more royal responsibilities for Her Majesty in the new year.
