Is Duchess Kate really expecting second royal baby?

Video: As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wow the crowds across New Zealand, baby Prince George has been the center of attention. While he wins hearts on his first royal tour, there’s now speculation about baby number two.

Rumors that Duchess Kate is expecting a royal baby looked to be over almost as they started Sunday, as she sipped wine and enjoyed a powerboat ride during an overseas tour.

British newspapers speculated that young Prince George might soon have a sibling after Prince William made a comment to well-wisher Cynthia Read during a public walkabout in Dunedin, New Zealand, Saturday.

Read handed Prince William a shawl for 8-month-old Prince George, prompting William to reportedly reply: "You might have to make another one soon."

That sent the royal rumor mill into overdrive, but on Sunday Kate and William went on a tour of a winery where she enjoyed a glass of pinot noir in front of the cameras.

In the adventure sport city of Queenstown, the couple went on a powerboat river ride.

William and Kate – and baby George – have only two days left in New Zealand before the royal tour rolls onwards to Australia.
