Prince William has spoken candidly in the past about starting a family with the Duchess of Cambridge but had not commented about numbers.

His admission came during a visit to the Gardens by the Bay attraction in Singapore when the royal couple went on a walkabout during a visit to the country as part of the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations.

Corine Ackermann, 17, who was with school friends from the Tanglin Trust British School, said: “Someone asked him how many children he would like to have, and he said he was thinking about having two.”

The Duke has mentioned a number of times his desire to start a family and it is not unusual for members of the public to quiz him about the topic.

During a reception in April held for polar trekkers at Goldsmiths’ Hall in London, Prince William cooed over a young baby he held in his arms. He cradled Hugo Eric Scott, dressed in a Superman romper suit, as his proud parents Vic and Hanna Vicary looked on.
