Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge is already one of the most photographed women on the planet, but now she's expecting their heir to the throne, interest in the newest royal has only increased.

Prince William, who is known to be fiercely protective of his wife, is said to admire how well she's “coping” with the extra interest and added pressure of a royal baby. The couple have long talked of their hope for a child, with the prince admitting it was his “main priority,” in an interview last Summer and since announcing the happy news, William is said to be impressed by Kate's resilience.

“Wills is being incredibly supportive, saying he's got so much admiration for how she's coping with it all,” a source told Now magazine.

It's not just Prince William who's protective of his wife. Brother-in-law Harry recently spoke candidly about his hopes that the Duchess can have the privacy she needs during her pregnancy.

In an interview on the eve of his return from a four month tour in Afghanistan he said: “Obviously I'm thrilled for both of them. It's about time. I spoke to my brother and her, and they're both very well and both very happy obviously.”

“I literally am very, very happy for them, but I just only hope that she and him – but mainly Catherine – hopefully that she gets the necessary protection to allow her as a mother-to-be to enjoy the privacy that that comes with. I seriously hope that's going to be able to happen.”
