‘It is true that the Queen and the Prince of Wales are both incredibly supportive of his career and whatever decision he makes. They have made clear that it is a decision he and his wife have got to take together. He is very torn.’
Poor Kate, who turned 30 in January, finds herself subjected to daily scrutiny over her figure and potential ‘baby bump’.
Friends of the prince say they think it is unlikely the pair would try for a baby before their upcoming Diamond Jubilee tour of Malaysia, Singapore, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu – a gruelling ten-day tour in September that is likely to tire even those in the rudest of health.
And, like many military wives, Kate might find it a challenge starting a family in a strange town far away from her nearest and dearest. She admits that she ‘worries terribly’ whenever her husband is out on a mission.
But, friends also shrug ruefully, who knows with William? He is a prince who revels in playing his cards close to his chest.
His pilot’s training course was even given its own, slightly ostentatious codename - Golden Osprey.
But at least, unlike his father who turned 30 very much as a single man hankering after the one woman he seemingly could never have, William is settled domestically.
