Royal baby mania is among us! And according to UK publication The Metro, another royal family member is with child — and it’s not only news to her, but to her other children, too! In a now-deleted tweet, The Metro incorrectly said Camilla Parker Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall, 70, is pregnant instead of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, 36, who is indeed expecting her third child.
“The Duchess of Cornwall is due to give birth to her third child next month,” the outlet penned, alongside a link to an article about Kate’s latest royal engagement in London. Awkward! Duchess Camilla’s son, Tom Parker Bowles, 43, was quick to point out the error and Tweeted, “Dear God. Really?” British Comedian Dom Joly then chimed in to say, “Congratulations on your impending sibling. Must have been a surprise,” to which Tom replied, “You’re not wrong,”

“Better start finding excuses not to babysit now, Tom,” a second fan teased. “Does [Prince] Charles know, Tom?” Camilla’s son, who starred on the British cooking series The Hot Plate, quipped back, “I’m the last to know.” Tom, who starred on the British cooking series The Hot Plate, quipped back. Duchess Camilla is the proud mother to Tom and daughter Laura Lopes, 39, from her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles.
Meanwhile, today’s outing will be one of Kate’s last public appearances before she commences maternity leave and prepares to welcome her third child and younger sibling for Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2. It’s believed Kate’s final public appearance will be on Commonwealth Day as she joins key members of the royal family at London’s Westminster Abbey on Monday, March 12.
