Rumours circulate the Duchess is pregnant after she repeatedly touches her stomach and refuses to eat peanut paste

By Mail On Sunday Reporter

Telltale sign: The Duchess of Cambridge couldn't stop touching her stomach

Maybe she was just feeling a bit peckish – but the Duchess of Cambridge has fuelled rumours that she may be pregnant by repeatedly touching her stomach during a Royal visit.

The 29-year-old was seen patting or holding her stomach at least a dozen times during a two-hour visit to an aid centre in Copenhagen.

Kate has already sparked pregnancy rumours by declining to eat peanut paste on her trip – as expectant mothers are advised not to eat peanuts in case it triggers an allergy in their child.

Kate was seen shooting Prince William a knowing look and grinning as she turned down the paste, intended for children hit by the East African famine. An aide confirmed: ‘There was no reason for her not tasting it, she does not have an allergy.’

The Duchess’s choice of outfit also contributed to talk that she might be hiding a baby bump. Her claret coat from High Street store LK Bennett seemed a size too large for her and bunched at the back.

Reed-thin in an elegant red coat and high-heeled boots, Kate was on her first humanitarian overseas trip with Prince William on Wednesday when she was offered the paste.

She politely declined and watched her husband as he ate the sample, a staple of UNICEF packages handed out in areas suffering from famine.

The Danish Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Mary also ate the paste.

Doctors recommend pregnant women avoid peanuts and peanut by products while expecting in order to prevent the development of allergies in their babies-to-be.

‘It was very odd,’ remarked one onlooker. ‘Kate would not stop touching her tummy – it was very noticeable. She continually patted it and held her hands against it. She must have been doing it without realising, and at one point she had both her hands cradling her stomach.

Her coat was also rather large. It looked loose below her waist, so she might well have been trying to hide something.’

Sources close to Kate say that she is ‘keen’ to start a family, but a spokesman said: ‘We would not confirm or deny any pregnancy rumours.’

Last month, Commonwealth leaders agreed to reform the succession laws so William and Kate’s first born will be monarch, even if the child is a girl

The young royals spent their day in Copenhagen learning more about the situation in drought-stricken East Africa, touring the UN facility and even helping pack cardboard boxes of supplies.

The couple also enjoyed a private meeting with UNICEF donors and supporters, including British actor Sir Roger Moore, who has been a global goodwill ambassador for the charity for more than 20 years.

They then went to watch a British Airways mercy flight, headed for Nairobi, being loaded at Copenhagen International Airport, before themselves boarding a scheduled flight with the airline home.

Today's speculation comes a week after the British parliament overturned 300 years of historic rule, giving girls born to members of the Royal Family equal rights with boys in the succession to the throne.

The reforms mean the if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first child is a girl, she will take precedence over any younger brothers in the order of succession.

Prime Minister David Cameron struck the deal to scrap male primogeniture by thrashing out an agreement with Commonwealth leaders.

Mr Cameron said the historic rules were 'at odds with the modern countries that we have become'.

Announcing the proposed changes, he said: 'Put simply, if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were to have a little girl, that girl would one day be our queen.'
