London, Jan 30: Prince William and Duchess Kate are said to have put off their plans of starting a family until next year so that they can focus on the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics.
Despite hopes of a Jubilee baby, sources close to the couple say they are in “no hurry” to start a family and want to make sure that 2012 is a success for the sake of the Queen’s 60th anniversary celebrations.
“Realistically there is not going to be time for a baby and they have said they are in no hurry. There is no urgent need for an heir – we already have two,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as saying.
“William and Kate want to take things in their own good time,” the source said.
The news comes as Clarence House confirmed that the Duchess will start solo official engagements next month, once her husband leaves for his first tour of duty in the Falkland Islands.
“It will be a good distraction for her and take her mind off worrying about William.
“At the moment, starting a family is definitely on the backburner,” the source added. (ANI)
