We can't help but think this is all a bit ridiculous, but Kate Middleton and Prince William are reported to be trying for another baby - just two months after baby George came into the world! We know these two are fans of hard work but we're not sure they'll be wanting to add to their brood just yet. Though a Palace expert has justified why he thinks a US mag's claims could be true...

It's barely two months since Kate Middleton gave birth, but already it's being claimed she's planning another baby.

Kate and Prince William only welcomed baby George on 22nd July, but they're loving life as new parents so much it's reported they want a brother or sister for their little boy.

An insider has told Life & Style magazine: "William and Kate are very keen to start trying for baby No. 2.

"They’d be thrilled if Kate were pregnant by Christmas.

"William and Kate will be splitting their time during the holidays with Kate’s family and the queen in Sandringham House in Norfolk, so it would be the perfect moment for an announcement."

We can't help but feel this is a little far-fetched and that the couple have enough on their plates without another baby on the way!

​But Palace expert Jerramy Fine reckons the couple want to ensure their children are close when they grow up.

He told the mag: "Royal or not, all couples want to mirror the special bond they had with their own siblings.

"William, who has one younger brother, has said in the past that he definitely wants two children, while Kate, who has a younger sister and a younger brother, has told friends that she hopes to have at least three."

But Kate and Wills, both 31, have got other things to be thinking about at the moment.

It was recently announced that Wills is leaving the armed forces after more than seven years of full-time service.

Kensington Palace confirmed he carried out his final shift as a search and rescue helicopter pilot with the RAF last Tuesday.

The Prince will now focus on his duties as a royal and a charity ambassador.

Air Chief Marshal Sir Andrew Pulford said: "Throughout his tour, his airmanship, often in the most demanding of conditions, has contributed to saving lives in the mountains of north Wales and from the ravages of the Irish Sea.

"He has earned the respect of all who have worked with him as a highly professional and competent pilot."

Last week Kate joined her husband on the red carpet at the Tusk foundation gala dinner at The Royal Society in London.

Wills - a patron of the Tusk charity - made a speech at the end of the evening, which celebrated the outstanding achievements in the field of African conservation.

The couple left their newborn son at home with Kate's mum Carole as they enjoyed a rare evening out.
