If Kate is presently 2 months pregnant, the future heir to the throne will currently measure just 1.6cm, the size of a kidney bean – in royal terms – a pair of Jubilee earrings, but she is predicted to be tall as an adult. Jill Irving, a BabyCentre expert and health visitor comments: "Based on the combined heights of William and Catherine, I would expect their daughter to reach around 5ft 10 inches as an adult."
