The royal couple's world is rocked by a suspected pregnancy... The palace has been rocked by a pregnancy scandal involving Prince William and his girlfriend Kate Middleton. The 26-year-old brunette was said to have been horrified when she suspected that she might be pregnant. "The panic started a few weeks ago, when Kate told Wills that she thought she was pregnant," reveals a Palace source. "William was left speechless. They're always very responsible and this shouldn't have happened." The source reports that Kate, particularly, was in shock. She and Wills have been together for many years and she has always been very sensible about these sorts of things, understanding the magnitude of what a situation like that would mean. When asked about the brewing scandal — which had royal insiders in an uproar — veteran royal commentator Judy Wade described the situation as completely out of character for Kate.
