Kate Middleton is reportedly ready for a second child with Prince William.

A source told the Sunday Express that the 32-year-old Duchess of Cambridge is eager to give Prince George, who celebrated his first birthday on 22 July, more siblings.

"Kate has been talking about having at least three children, which is why she is keen to be pregnant again.

"The Duke would probably be happy with two but Kate is very close to her brother and sister and there is a sense that as she is one of three, she would like to have three herself," the insider said.

Adding on, the royal couple are planning to stay in Anmer Hall in Norfolk, for the "next couple of years."

Anmer Hall in Norfolk, a late Georgian property built in 1802, is one and a half miles from the Queen's residence at Sandringham House.

"The couple are hugely excited about spending more time in Norfolk.

"They feel like caged animals at Kensington Palace but in Norfolk can live the kind of life they enjoyed on Anglesey. There are no paparazzi waiting on the doorstep. It's the perfect place to bring up a young family," the source added.

Meanwhile, rumours regarding Kate's second pregnancy have been doing the rounds for a while now.

Recently, Kate's childhood friend Jessica Hay told an Australian publication that she is expecting her second child with Prince William. Hay had famously predicted her first pregnancy in November 2012 just weeks before the official announcement.
