Royal Baby mania has kicked into overdrive!

And according to UK publication The Metro, another Royal Family member is with child – and it’s not only news to her, but her other children!

In a now-deleted Tweet, The Metro incorrectly named Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, 70, instead of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, 36, who is indeed pregnant with her third child.

The two Duchesses are at very different stages of their lives!

“The Duchess of Cornwall is due to give birth to her third next month,” they penned, alongside a link to Duchess Catherine’s latest royal outing, opening the new Place2Be HQ in London.

Err, whoops!

Duchess Camilla’s son Tom Parker Bowles, 43, was quick to point out the error tweeting: “Dear God. Really?”

Camilla’s oldest son Tom Parker Bowles managed to find the funny side of the slip-up.

“Congratulations on your impending sibling. Must have been a surprise,” comedian British Dom Joly chimed in.

“You’re not wrong,” food critic Tom responded in good humour.

“Better start finding excuses not to babysit, now Tom,” a second fan teased.

“Does Charles know Tom?” user @Frostybutcher joked of Tom’s stepfather, Prince Charles.

“I’m the last to know Frosty. As ever,” Tom quipped back.

The tweet has since been taken down.

Duchess Camilla is the proud mother to Tom and daughter Laura Lopes, 39, from her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles.

Meanwhile, Duchess Catherine’s latest outing will be one of her last public appearances before she commences maternity leave and prepares to welcome her third child and younger sibling for Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two.

It’s believed Kate’s final public appearance will be on Commonwealth Day as she joins key members of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey on March 12th.

Yes, this baby bump seems to confirm it – it’s Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge that’s due, not Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
