The imminent birth of the Duchess of Sussex’s first baby seems to have made her sister-in-law broody. I hear the Duchess of Cambridge is keen to have a fourth child.
‘Catherine would like another baby,’ a friend tells me. ‘She loves children and is prepared to put herself through another pregnancy even though they have been complicated by severe morning sickness in the past.’
It had been widely thought that she wanted to have three children, the same as her mother, Carole Middleton, so a fourth birth would surprise some royal watchers.
‘Catherine would like another baby,’ a friend tells me. ‘She loves children and is prepared to put herself through another pregnancy even though they have been complicated by severe morning sickness in the past’
But Kate, 37, is five months younger than Meghan and there is plenty of time to add another sibling.
The Duchess would, of course, be following the example of the Queen, who gave birth to her fourth child, Prince Edward, when she was 37.
Kate gave a hint of possible intentions when with Prince William in Northern Ireland in February. As she met an adorable five-month-old baby, James Barr, she told his father, Alan: ‘He’s gorgeous. It makes me feel broody.’

It’s not clear if William shares his wife’s desire for another baby but friends say he is just as keen on children as Kate. She has been concentrating much effort in her official duties on causes to help support children in their earliest years of life.
Last month, the family celebrated the first birthday of Prince Louis with an official photograph taken by Kate of her son playing in the garden of their Norfolk retreat, Anmer Hall.
Louis was wearing a cosy red jumper handed down by five-year-old Prince George. How long before Louis hands it down again?
A big hand for Anthony Quinn’s sculptor son...
Anthony Quinn’s dance in Zorba the Greek is still copied today, but the late Hollywood’s star’s artist son Lorenzo concentrates on hands not feet.
For next week’s Venice Biennale, he has designed a spectacular sculpture, Building Bridges, composed of six pairs of arms, 50ft high and 66ft wide, clasping hands over the Arsenale canal basin.
Lorenzo (pictured with his father) says he wants to ‘spread a message of world unity and peace so that more of us build bridges rather than walls and barriers.’ Are you listening, Mr Trump?

The smart set’s talking about... Marquess of Granby’s model girlfriend Ella
With their naked selfies, on-screen rows and tangled love lives, U.S. reality TV stars the Kardashians might seem to have little in common with the aristocratic Manners family who live at magnificent Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire.
I hear there is, however, an intriguing connection to the Duke of Rutland’s clan.
The Duke’s amiable son and heir Charles, the Marquess of Granby, 19, is enjoying a passionate romance with Ella Ross, 23, (left) a model who used to go out with Scott Disick, a regular on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

‘Charles is serious about the relationship,’ one of his friends tells me. ‘Ella’s a lovely girl, but I’m not sure he’s ready to make her the Marchioness just yet.’
Ambitious Ella, 23, is the daughter of Shelley Ross, a former lapdancer. She wants to parade on the catwalk for Victoria’s Secret lingerie, explaining: ‘That’s every model’s dream, isn’t it?’
Ella might have stepped out with a Kardashians’ star, but can she keep up with her boyfriend’s high-spirited sisters, Lady Violet, Lady Alice and Lady Eliza Manners?
