William and Kate to have six kids?


Britain's Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, will have six children, a family history website has predicted.

Genes Reunited has guesstimated the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ? who’s due to give birth to the couple's first child on 13 July ? could be set to have a royal brood if Kate's family tree is anything to go by.

Head of Genes Reunited Rhoda Breakell said, "Following our very close predictions of the birth date, we wanted to look into the Middleton records to see what we might be able to uncover. We were surprised by the number of children in the Middleton family and wonder whether the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will follow in Kate's ancestor's footsteps.

"Using the 515 million records available on Genes Reunited, people can look back through their family history to discover fascinating patterns which may exist amongst their ancestors."

The site also predicts the couple's second child will be born in April 2016 after looking into Kate’s family history.

Last year, Genes Reunited researchers scoured the royal birth and marriage records from the past 100 years and calculated that 851 days was the average period between a royal wedding and the arrival of a baby.

They predicted that the birth and sex of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first child would be a son born on 27 August this year. And with the duchess' due date officially confirmed as 13 July, their prediction proved strikingly accurate.
