Royal baby jitters! Pregnant Duchess of Cambridge was frank with fellow expectant mums during a visit to London's Hope Hope House, Action on Addiction on Feb. 19. In her first official event following her controversial babymoon in Mustique, the 31-year-old royal showcased her growing baby bump in a MaxMara wrap dress and talked about her pregnancy with two recovering women in an art therapy class.

Lisa, a mother-of-three who did not want to give her full name, said: "I did ask her if she was nervous (about giving birth). She said it would be unnatural if she wasn't - she's human like us."

The Duchess also chatted to Natalie, who has a two-year-old daughter and is due to give birth to a second child in July - the same month as the Duchess who is more than four months pregnant.

The 28-year-old said the talk also turned to babies when they chatted: "We're due about the same time. She's been unwell and feeling better now and I felt pretty much the same the first time."

One topic not discussed during Prince William's wife's official visit? The criticisms by author Hilary Mantel, who called the royal a "shop window mannequin" with a "plastic smile" in a recent speech.

Countered Nick Barton, chief executive of Action on Addiction: "I can only speak of what I know, and having met the Duchess several times I find her to be engaging, natural and genuinely interested in the subject. You can tell a lot about someone from the questions they ask and she asks really good questions, the questions of someone who wants to learn. She is also an intelligent woman."

Added Barton of the Duchess' efforts: "She is doing an enormous amount to reduce the stigma of addiction and increase understanding of it."

    how b!tchy is Hilary Mantel? how can someone with such poor insight into human character compose literature with genuine depth? it seems impossible. i might give her tracts a miss. everyone knows the Booker is a joke anyway, ever since Yann Martel won it.

    Do you believe in EQUALITY? NO, if you are royalist as COMMONERS can NEVER BE a royal as the ARE NOT ELECTED. VERY UNDEMOCRATIC and yet the so-called Western countries are trying to "SPREAD THEIR DEMOCRACY" and yet many WESTERN COUNTRIES have royalties WHICH ARE NOT DEMOCRATIC! ABOLISH THE ROYALTIES as as COMMONERS WE DO NOT WANT TO SUBSIDIES the FILTHY RICH ROYALTY! IF WE DO USE OUR TAX MONEY TO PAY e windsor and the ladida family, THEY ARE THE KEPT MEN AND WOMEN!

Monarchies are INTERESTING HISTORICAL FACTS and it is not DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED and yet TOO MANY WESTERNERS trying to spread DEMOCRACY and believe in monarchy which is a CONTRADICTION! ABOLISH THE MONARCHIES where ever they are! I do not want to pay them as my KEPT WOMEN!
