William And Kate Do Not Plan To Have Another Royal Baby, Claims Duke of Cambridge

The Duke of Cambridge has revealed he is not planning to have another baby with his wife at the moment as "one's enough".

William was quizzed about increasing his family when he visited the Irish Guards at their military base in Aldershot with wife Kate to mark St Patrick's Day.

The proud royal father, who is the regiment's Colonel, said during their day with the soldiers and officers that son George - who will be joining them on their trip to New Zealand and Australia next month - was crawling.

The Duchess presented sprigs of shamrocks to around 300 soldiers on parade and honoured the regimental mascot, Irish wolf hound Domhnall, with his own bunch of the well known plant.

Former Regimental Sergeant Major Ray Collister, 56, from Tamworth, lost no time in asking William if he was planning to add to his family after the ceremony.

The Duke replied: "Maybe one day, one's enough at the moment."

The old soldier who served with the regiment for 25 years said after meeting the Duke that he asked him if he was planning another "Mick" - the affectionate nickname for the Irish Guards.

Mr Collister, who is wheelchair bound after suffering spinal injuries over the years, said: "I congratulated him on the birth of a new Mick and I wanted to know if he was planning any more baby Micks.

"William said 'when there's time'."
