Updated: Is Kate Middleton pregnant with another royal baby?
Kate and William arrive at Dunedin airport. They will attend a church service to commence Palm Sunday.
Kate is wearing a stunning aqua Emilia Wickstead dress (her first New Zealand designer!) and a hat by Jane Taylor.
The Duke and Duchess receive an official greeting in Dunedin.
Kate looks at William as rumors of the next royal baby are swirling today.
Kate greets a teensy, adorable young girl wearing a tutu!

So cute, the adorable little one gives Kate a big hug.

Kate and William went on to watch a rugby match, coaching separate teams. Here, Kate and All Blacks captain Richie McCaw prep their players!
Major strategizing happening here.
The Duchess wore a sweater by Jonathan Saunders and navy skinny jeans.
And the Duke gets his revenge! William's team beat Kate's, 30-20.
Next up, Kate and William visited a New Zealand winery.

The royal couple about to taste some wine - all eyes on Kate as pregnancy rumors were at their height.
(We're obsessed with her collared shirt, btw. Yet to identify!)
And boom. No baby on board as Duchess Kate takes a swig.
Next, Kate and William take a ride on the 50mph Shotover Jet on the Shotover River, but first up: flowers from a seriously adorable child.
Changed and ready to go for their big ride!
And they're off! The boat was reportedly filled with royal aides, protection officers and more. Fun for everyone, we're sure!
Kate and William laughing as they hold on for dear life.
Just one more way to prove she's not pregnant - the ride is not recommended for those who are expecting. Little George will have to be our cuteness factor for quite a while longer! (and we're totally okay with that.)
Update: Well she might not have drank a lot of wine, but Kate did partake in a bit during their visit to the winery. Not pregnant! She then hopped on a "Shotover" boat - which travels at over 50mph. Not something you'd do with a bun in the oven. The woman who was speaking with William insisted the following day that the Duke didn't say "soon," but said "some time." And finally, Kate has reportedly said recently that she plans to up her royal engagements once they return from the tour, which indicates there's no brother or sister for George in the too near future.
Yesterday, Prince William was chatting with Cynthia Reed who had made a shawl for Prince George, and he told her, "You might have to make another one soon!" And this one comment sent the papers -- and hearts around the world -- flurrying at the idea of another royal bundle. Both William and Kate have said that they want more than one child, and that they'd like them to be close in age like they both are with their own siblings.
Said Ms. Reed, "The way William said it was like he was dropping a hint, letting me in on a secret." Anyone else freaking out here?!
On St. Patrick's Day, William was quoted saying in regards to another baby: "maybe one day -- one is enough for now," and Kate had a sip of sherry to celebrate the holiday. But notably on one of their first nights in New Zealand, Kate and William both toasted the Queen's new portrait with water. Needless to say, all eyes are going to be on Kate later this evening (Sunday afternoon in New Zealand) as the royal couple goes for a wine tasting. Will Kate drink a glass or two to quiet the media buzz? Or will she let the rumors intensify that George will soon be a big brother, by refusing the wine?
In our non-expert, seriously-just-speculating opinion, we're pretty sure that Kate is not pregnant right now. When you think about how much pain she was in during her first trimester with George, it just doesn't seem likely she'd want to risk being sick while on tour. BUT this little tidbit from William could mean the next baby will be on the way very very soon.
