Kate Middleton’s revealing body language and a loose fitting dress sparked new rumors about a possible pregnancy today (July 5) at an event to celebrate the start of the Tour de France in West Tanfield, Yorkshire, England.

Kate’s body language, caught in photos of the event, also suggested that she may be starting to show a baby bump.

In one photo she walks gingerly with Prince William toward photographers and shields her stomach from view with her hands and clutch.

In a number of other poses Kate also keeps her hand, and or her clutch in front of abdomen, as if to prevent her baby bump from protruding.

If she is pregnant, Kate is likely three months along. But without Royal confirmation, and so far there has been none, there is no way to know for sure if she’s with child.

It would not be unlike William and Kate to keep the pregnancy a secret until Kate was well enough along to rule out the possibility of a miscarriage.

Kate Middleton Flashes Bare Bottom in Australia; Was She Commando?

Rumors about the Duchess’s condition have surged and ebbed almost since Prince George was born on July 12 a year ago.

In April, speculation rose to a fever pitch when Prince William made a chatty aside during a tour of Australia that seemed to suggest Kate was preggers.

But apparently, the chatty prince was being taken a little too literally.

Kate quickly put the rumors to rest by downing a glass of pino gris. She didn’t drink while pregnant with George.

At the time, Kate, who is known for her washboard abs, also wore her signature tight-fitting outfit.

But this time things were different. Kate’s kelly green shift dress was loose fitting and she kept her hand over her bump area almost the whole time.
