London, Nov 19 (ANI): Prince William's soon-to-be bride Kate Middleton is to give up working for her parents' company.
However, she will not forge a role as a working princess immediately after she marries, fuelling speculation that the couple has plans to start a family soon.
Middleton, who turns 29 in January, will give up her job as a website designer and photographer at the family business Party Pieces despite previous plans to continue after the wedding, reports the Daily Mail.
She won't be taking up full-time royal duties instead. Her only official duties, including opening ceremonies and attending charity events, will be on the arm of her RAF pilot husband in the immediate future, according to a statement from St James's Palace.
Kate will not get her own office and will instead share staff with William.
"Prince William wants to initiate her properly into the job, so at first she will not undertake any solo engagements. If Miss Middleton is free before the wedding, she may join the prince on engagements but that decision will be taken on a case-by-case basis," said a spokesman.
The move is designed to ease the future queen into her role and avoid the depression and torment suffered by William's late mother Princess Diana who was overwhelmed by her new role when she joined the Royal Family.
The decision also prompts speculation the couple will try to have a child as soon as possible.
"The slow start is partly about easing her gradually into the role and partly to allow time for babies - definitely more than one," said a source close to William. (ANI)
