Tabloids and tabloid-style reporting make me laugh.

Kate Middleton Pregnancy Rumors intensify.

(First of all, why are they still calling her Kate Middleton? How about Dutchess Catherine? Kate Windsor? Also, and this I honestly don't get - someone with more knowledge of royal titles enlighten me - if William is a prince, why isn't she a princess? I know he's a duke too, but you'd think the higher title would trump...?)

ANYWAY. This is funny:

Pregnancy rumours began earlier this month after the couple visited Denmark. The Duke of Cambridge gave his wife numerous meaningful looks, according to reporters who were there.

Royal watchers also took note that at one point, William put out his arm, as if to help her.

Because heaven forbid a man give his wife his arm, much less give her "meaningful looks." *headdesk*

Kate also has the habit of putting her hands in front of her stomach when she stands, so its not hard for them to get pics of her either shielding or touching her "pregnant" belly. My favorite was when they said she was in her first trimester with a boy and a girl twin, when that's before an ultrasound could tell the genders. Or the headlines about how they were waiting to tell the Queen, but somehow the tabloids know before the Queen. Maybe the they figure that if they just keep announcing it, someday they may be right!

It does, doesn't it? Maybe that's the Official Royal Posture. ;)
