On September 4 last year, the Twitter feed of Kensington Palace had a big announcement; the Duchess of Cambridge was expecting her third child. People inquisitively questioned when is it due.

But, the news got even more hyped now, since it has been reported that the royal couple is expecting twin princesses.

On what happens to be an exclusive of Life & Style magazine, Kate Middleton is expecting twin girls with husband Prince William in April. William, 35, and Kate “couldn’t be happier about their double-baby news,” a source said to Life & Syle.

“She’s been telling pals that she’s thrilled to be pregnant with two little princesses and has been proudly showing the sonogram to those closest to her.”

The two babies were also detailed to have drastically different personalities. “One of the babies was calm and relaxed, whereas the other had endless energy,” the source explained of Kate’s most recent sonogram appointment. “In a way, Kate feels like she got an idea of what the girls’ personalities are like! Kate jokes that the active baby is a ‘drama queen in the making.'”

However, there has been no official confirmation on this but many have been guessing ever since the pregnany news were announced as reports went on to say that Kate's pregnancy was heavier this time but the morning sickness was still the same as that of her previous two pregnancies. 

The couple already have two children, Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two. 

People are doing the calculations and while there hasn't been twins with royal blood in over 700 years, twins still do run in the family for both Kate and William.

It is said that Kate's paternal grandmother had a twin sister and her father had twin great-aunts. For William, his uncle, Charles Spencer — Princess Diana‘s brother — has identical twin daughters, and his maternal great-grandfather was an identical twin.

Until and unless we get an offcial confirmation, only time can reveal, maybe in the next two months we will know for sure.
