Exclusively in this issue of U.S. Magazine reveals the grandparents had been the first to hear the news of Kate Middleton and Prince William’s baby. Reportedly on December 1, 2012 the couple had visited Carole and Michael Middleton at their Georgian manor in Bucklebury, England, when they heard the joyous news.
The place had released a statement at four p.m. the baby news, also saying that Middleton had been hospitalized for acute morning sickness. A palace source says the couple,
“wanted to keep it a secret until it was safe.” An aide added, “It was a reluctant decision for the two of them. They wanted to wait until Christmas Day.” However, the parents-to-be are “elated,” said the palace source, adding “They wanted to keep the news quiet a while longer, but it doesn’t take away any of their excitement.”
