The Duchess of Cambridge began her maternity leave last week before her second child with Prince William arrives later this month.

But the American comedian, who hosts Jimmy Kimmel Live, said on Tuesday night to an applauding audience: 'Isn't her whole life maternity leave?"

Middleton is reportedly due to give birth on April 25 and the royal couple are determined to move into their extensive Amner Hall residence before the birth, according to Vanity Fair's Royal Watch.

“They are determined to be in their new home before the baby is born,” a source told the magazine. “The works are nearly finished.”

“They will go to Anmer if it’s all finished, or there’s a chance Kate will move in with her parents for a couple of weeks just to cope with those early weeks,” reports a source.

It has also been reported that the expectant royal has asked her parents Carole and Michael to join them at their Norfolk home, recruiting them as unofficial caretakers in running the extensive property.

Her mother Carole has taken to running the household from her wing, while her father Michael is responsible for the gardening.

After George was born, Kate moved in with her parents, but Carole and Michael will be swapping arrangements this time around.

“William is very happy to sit back and let Carole take up the reins. She is ensuring that Anmer runs like clockwork," a source told the newspaper.
