What's Kate Hiding? Duchess Sparks Pregnancy Rumours At Charity Gig

Holding a clutch bag to cover her mid-riff, Kate Middleton sparked new rumours that she might be pregnant.

The Duchess of Cambridge held the bag in front of her stomach for nearly every photo while attending a charity concert with husband Prince William this week.

Of course, she might just have been feeling a little bloated, but it's not the first time pregnancy rumours have surfaced – and it won't be the last.

Last month, the gossips went into overdrive when Kate refused to eat peanut paste while visiting a Denmark UNICEF distribution centre.

Since she's not allergic to peanuts, people jumped to the conclusion she was avoiding them on doctor's advice if she was pregnant.

And in September, a U.S. gossip magazine ran a story claiming the Duchess was pregnant with TWINS!

Not surprisingly, the rumours are always treated dismissively by Buckingham Palace.

"If and when there is an announcement to make, it will be made by the palace as soon as it's safe to," a spokesman for the Royals said.

This week, it was Clutch Bag-Gate that got the rumour mill churning when the Royal newlyweds attended Gary Barlow's pop concert in support of the Prince's Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, joining Prince Charles and Camilla.
