Bets Being Placed On Possible Royal Baby Announcement
(Undated) -- Increased betting activity is prompting speculation about another royal baby on the way. According to the U.K.'s "Daily Mail," online bookmakers saw a surge in overnight bets between Monday and Tuesday with gamblers making guesses about a possible announcement from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton. Kensington Palace is refusing to comment on the rumors, which have been making the rounds in recent days. Australian magazine "New Idea," for example, claims a friend of Kate's confirmed the Duchess' pregnancy and that members of Kate's inner circle are buzzing with the news.

The reports come just days ahead of the birthday celebrations for Kate and Will's son Prince George who turns one on July 22nd.
