SINGAPORE -- Prince William says he wants to have two children with his wife, Kate. The British royal has spoken often in the past about wanting to start a family but had not given specific numbers.
The revelation came Wednesday while the royal couple was touring Singapore. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on a nine-day tour of the Far East and South Pacific in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee.
Student Corine Ackermann said: "Someone asked him how many children he would like to have, and he said he was thinking about having two."
The royal couple also visited a Rolls Royce jet engine factory in Singapore on Wednesday. They toured the factory and unveiled the first engine produced by the plant, which opened earlier this year.
Singapore is the first stop on the couple's tour. They'll also visit the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu.
