Kate Middleton, 39, and Prince William, 39, visited Northern Ireland last week where they were given the opportunity to sample some Northern Irish food and drink from whiskey and soda bread to Tayto crisps. In a video clip posted by royal correspondent Richard Palmer, the Cambridges were told to help themselves to samples of whiskey but only William picked up a glass. Us Weekly royal correspondents Molly Mulshine and Christina Garibaldi discussed the speculations made over the clip and dismissed claims it could be due to pregnancy on the Royally Us podcast.
Ms Mulshine said: “They visited Derry which is in Northern Ireland and they hit every aspect of Irish life.
“Kate apparently didn’t drink the whiskey and some people were speculating on that but I don’t know.
“Do you think it’s probably just because drinking whiskey in broad daylight at work is not the best look?”
Ms Garibaldi said: “I think that’s it.

Prince William took the offering of whiskey
“We spoke to one of our royal experts a couple of weeks ago and he doesn’t think they’re going to go for baby number four.
“Maybe she just didn’t feel like it was the right time or the place.”
It comes as royal commentator Nick Bullen, the co-founder of True Royalty TV, suggested the Duchess may be happy with “matching” her parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, and stop at three children.
Asked whether Prince William and Kate may soon announce a new baby on the way, Mr Bullen told Royally US: “Look, I don’t know, I’m not privy to that information.

“But I think they feel they got a pretty perfect family.
“Kate was always very keen to follow her parents and have that family of five. She’s matched it and my own view is, they probably will stop here.
“She had a really tough time with all of her pregnancies.”
The Duchess of Cambridge suffered from the debilitating condition known as hyperemesis gravidarum during her pregnancies with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
The condition left her debilitated due to the constant nausea and vomiting, which even forced her to be hospitalised while expecting her eldest son in 2013.
Mr Bullen also noted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as two leading members of the Royal Family, will likely have a prominent role in the celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year.
He continued: “Both of them turn 40 next year and they are really keen to be promoting their charities, their initiatives, their foundations.
“The next 12-months is all about the work – not about a new baby.”
