We need more ba­bies!

Kate hints at third child and says: I’m not per­fect, it’s just make-up

Irish Daily Mail - - News - From Tom Kelly in Warsaw

SHE cer­tainly has her hands full with George and Char­lotte – but that hasn’t stopped Kate Mid­dle­ton hint­ing she would like a third baby.

On the first day of a royal tour in con­ti­nen­tal Europe yes­ter­day, the Duchess of Cam­bridge was of­fered a cud­dly toy de­signed to soothe new­borns dur­ing an event for new tech­nol­ogy firms.

Of­fer­ing her thanks for the gift, she turned to Prince Wil­liam laugh­ing and said: ‘We will just have to have more ba­bies.’

The cou­ple were in the Pol­ish cap­i­tal Warsaw for the be­gin­ning of the five-day trip, dur­ing which the fam­ily will also be vis­it­ing Ger­many.

The soft toys, from com­pany Whis­bear, are de­signed to com­fort new­borns by repli­cat­ing the sound of the womb, re­spond­ing to their cries to soothe them.

Ju­lia Sielicka-Jas­trzeb­ska, who founded the com­pany with her sis­ter, said Kate made the light-hearted com­ment af­ter learn­ing that the bears, which she had ad­mired, were de­signed for chil­dren younger than George and Char­lotte. Among the presents were a bear for each child, and a T-shirt for the duchess with the slo­gan ‘i’m per­fect’; part of the com­pany’s cam­paign to en­cour­age moth­ers not to feel the pres­sure to be flaw­less.

The cam­paign clearly res­onated with 35-year-old Kate as ear­lier in the day she had told well-wish­ers that her good looks were all down to her make-up.

Magda Mor­daka, 21, a stu­dent who spoke to the duchess out­side the Pres­i­den­tial Palace, said: ‘We were telling her that she is beau­ti­ful and per­fect, but she said, “It’s not true – it’s just the make-up.”’

Kate and Prince Wil­liam were at The Heart, a cen­tre for dig­i­tal and tech start-ups in Warsaw. The royal cou­ple were shown a va­ri­ety of in­no­va­tions, in­clud­ing a ro­bot de­signed to teach chil­dren cod­ing. Be­fore tak­ing their leave Wil­liam 35, and Kate spent time with six Pol­ish stu­dents who are study­ing in the UK.

Af­ter be­ing asked for a selfie with three of them, Prince Wil­liam joked: ‘I’m al­ler­gic to self­ies but let’s take a pho­to­graph.’

Watch­ing his wife pose with the oth­ers, he made her laugh by teas­ing her: ‘You don’t look as clever as the other three.’

Wil­liam and Kate also vis­ited the ded­i­cated Warsaw to Upris­ingthe 1944 Mu­seum, Pol­ish upris­ing to lib­er­ate Warsaw from Ger­man oc­cu­pa­tion dur­ing the Sec­ond World War.

When they move on to Ger­many, they will have a pri­vate meet­ing with Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel in Ber­lin be­fore they visit the Bran­den­burg Gate. A boat race is also planned in the city of Hei­del­berg, Wil­liam and Kate will cox op­pos­ing row­ing teams in the race.
