Shine reports. According to the excerpt, Kate Middleton’s nickname for her baby bump was “our little grape.” How sweet! “The Future Queen” includes multiple interviews with sources close to the royal family and palace insiders, Yahoo! Shine reports. Many of the details of Kate Middleton, or the Duchess of Cambridge, reveal that she is quite a normal young woman, both anxious and excited about the birth of her first child, the website notes. Yet other details remind us commoners that Kate Middleton is also second in line to Britain’s throne and mother of the third. Here are our favorite interesting tidbits about Kate Middleton from the Vanity Fair excerpt of “The Future Queen,” as reported by Yahoo! Shine: To prepare for the baby’s arrival, Prince William dug his old toys out of the attic at their cottage at Kensington Palace including his favorite teddy bear named, “Wombat.” The clothing and baby furniture purchased before the birth were in “gender neutral shades of cream,” indicating the couple truly didn’t know what their firstborn’s sex would be. However, Kate suspected it might be a little boy because it kicked so much. The first person to learn about the birth, outside of the attendants at the hospital, was Queen Elizabeth whom Will called on an encrypted phone. While Kate appeared perfectly groomed and poised when she came out of the hospital, Tucker later reported that she was very emotional after the birth and deeply nervous to face the press. The couple did not hire a baby nurse but relied on Kate’s mother, Carole, for assistance in caring for newborn George. “William said he didn’t want a nanny or nurse coming in doing shifts…,” said a friend. Carole and Kate’s father, Michael, took turns helping the new parents, and Carole made fruit smoothies for breakfast, nourishing meals, and kept Kate supplied with her favorite granola bars. When Kate and Will returned to their farmhouse on Anglesey, she retained only a housekeeper to help her with cleaning and grocery shopping.
“She said it was straightforward and there were no complications. She wanted a natural birth and she was so happy she was able to have one.” Sounds so easy doesn’t it? According to Hollywood Life , Middleton might be describing the process as “perfect” but she was in labor for 11 hours before giving birth to her son. That alone is grueling however, Middleton did go through the entire process without any medicine. “[She] insisted on keeping the stressful process completely natural and shunned the slightest bit of pharmaceutical comfort,” a source told the New York Post. Prince William’s wife seemed to adjust to being pregnant very well. She didn’t appear to gain that much weight; the only giveaway she was expecting a baby was her slightly baby bump. Even the day after bringing the royal baby into the world Middleton walked out of St. Mary’s hospital looking radiant, happy and gorgeous. She decided not to hide her baby bump and showed off her post-baby curves in a Jenny Packham dress. “Because her tummy was still very round and she decided there was no point trying to hide her bump, so she went for a flattering dress that showed off her curves,” the source told Vanity. According to US Weekly, Middleton has already shed most of her baby weight and a source revealed that she really didn’t gain that much weight. “[Kate has] hardly done anything to lose the weight… she looks incredible,” the source told US. “A few weeks after George was born, you could hardly tell she had just given birth.
