The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may have let slip plans for a third child by dropping a huge hint – after being given a present designed for babies.

Kate and William already have their hands full on their trip to Poland with George and Charlotte – but Kate has hinted she’d like a third child. She was offered a cuddly toy designed to soothe tiny babies during an event for start-up tech companies in Warsaw. But saying thank you for the present, she turned to William, laughing, and let slip: “We will just have to have more babies.”

Royal watchers have long suspected that Kate – one of three herself – would like another baby. Julia Sielicka-Jastrzebska, who founded the company, said the Duchess made the light-hearted comment after learning the bears, which she had admired, were designed for children younger than George and Charlotte. “We gave the Duchess some presents for Prince George and Princess Charlotte,” she said. “She said they should have more babies, and they laughed.”
