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.”
