Many have been waiting for news of a royal baby ever since the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge a year ago, but there could be a few reasons why the couple is in no rush to start their family.
ABC News said historian Robert Lacey has a new theory and believes the couple will wait at least two years until having a royal baby.
The Brits reportedly decided to change the succession laws last year so if Will and Kate have a girl first, and not a boy, she would eventually be queen.
Younger brothers would no longer take the throne ahead of older sisters.
ABC News said the Queen is head of state of 16 countries and they’ve all got to negotiate wording, which will take time.
Until that law is changed, some think the Duke and Duchess will not produce a child.
Also, if they have twins and a girl is followed by a boy, the boy is the future king under the present rules, according to the report.
Then if they change the law in time and the succession could reportedly be taken away from the boy and given to the girl.
Others believe another reason why we won’t see the former Kate Middleton with a baby bump anytime soon is because the couple doesn’t want to take the spotlight away from the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this year.
