Sweden's Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip have announced they are expecting their first baby that has sent negative vibes to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who is said to be jealous the Swedish Royal Family is taking the spotlight away from her - again, various media reported.
Royal watchers have watched with gusto when Princess Madeleine decided to broadcast the christening of Princes Nicola's on Swedish television while her two-year-old daughter captured the hearts of the world when she danced in the aisle during the baptism, reported Celebrity Dirty Laundry.
Now, Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip said they are expecting their first baby to be born in April 2016, the same month when Kate and the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, will celebrate their wedding anniversary. Kate and William were married on April 29, 2011. According to reports, the arrival of the latest Swedish Royal Baby could take away the spotlight from Kate's fifth wedding anniversary.
Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia made the announcement on Thursday (Oct. 15) several days after the christening of Prince Nicola to avoid taking away from his important day. The Royal couple said in a joint statement "We are so happy and excited to announce that we are expecting our first child. We are very much looking forward to it."
The Duchess of Värmland, Princess Sofia was formerly Sofia Kristina Hellqvist and a former model and a contestant of the reality television show Paradise Hotel. She was named Miss Slitz by the men's magazine Slitz in 2004 and is gaining popularity. Her ascent to the limelight could threaten the status of Kate as a royal household and could divert some of the money earned by royals based on their popularity.
Aside from envying the rising Swedish Royals, Kate is also facing problems on the domestic front, specifically the reported reconciliation between Prince Harry and her former girlfriend Cressida Bonas, said OK! Magazine.
But what is Kate's beef with Cressida? Well Cressida's half-sister, Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, is the former girlfriend of Prince William. The two were linked together when the Duke of Cambridge was single and on a break with Middleton. Isabella is said to be Prince William's first choice of a wife, according to another report by Celebrity Dirty Laundry.
"Of course Kate doesn't like Cressida," CDL reported and added, "the Kate Middleton, Cressida Bonas, and Isabella Calthorpe bad blood goes deeper than just a dislike or a love mismatch. The Duchess is smart enough to see Prince Harry and Cressida's relationship as a threat to her marriage, position in the royal family, and power."
A source close to the Royal family was quoted as saying, "Kate doesn't like Cressida at all. It's not just that she thinks Cressida isn't a love match for Harry. It goes deeper than that. She doesn't want her in the family."
The source added, "Kate is afraid that William sees Isabella as the one who got away. She hates even hearing Isabella's name mentioned. She was obviously upset when Cressida and Harry started dating."
