Duchess Catherine 'loves' name Diana
Dec 10, 2012, 16:01 GMT
Britain's Duchess Catherine has 'always loved' the name Diana.
The duchess and her husband Prince William - whose late mother Princess Diana was killed in a Paris car crash in 1997 - are planning to wait until their baby is born before giving it a moniker, but her old school friend Jessica Hay says there are particular names Catherine favours.
She said: 'Catherine's been saying, as per her mother's suggestion, that she wants to meet the baby first and then decide. If it's a girl, Victoria is a favourite and, funnily enough, Diana is a name that Catherine has always loved.'
It has been speculated that Catherine - who is also known as her maiden name of Kate Middleton - is expecting twins as she has been suffering from severe morning sickness, and Jessica says the couple would be thrilled if that were the case.
She told Australia's New Idea magazine: 'Catherine would love twins and a lot of people in their circle in London say it could indeed be the case that she is expecting twins.
'If it were a boy and a girl, it would be a dream come true for them both.'
And according to Jessica, Catherine and William have vowed to be hands-on parents with few household staff attending to their offspring.
She said: 'There will be a house with a lot of laughter rather than staffed with nannies, governesses and butlers and so on.'
