Prince William's girlfriend Kate Middleton is believed to have had a pregnancy scare. The 26-year-old was apparently left "panicked" after recently becoming convinced she was expecting the 26-year-old royal's baby.
A source close to the British royal family said told Australia's Woman's Day magazine: "The panic started a few weeks ago, when Kate told William that she thought she was pregnant."
"William was left speechless. They're always very responsible and this shouldn't have happened."
"After weeks of worrying about their future, William and Kate learned they're pregnancy concerns were ill-founded and it was just a scare."
The news has apparently sparked "uproar" in the royal household. Neither Kate nor an official royal spokesperson has commented on the incident.
Kate, 26, has been dating William since 2001. Rumors have long been rife of an impending marriage, but recent reports have suggested any nuptials would be a long way off due to the amount of high-ranking officials who would need to be consulted.
