London: Prince William revealed that he would like to have two children, after being asked a very direct question by a member of the public on his visit to Singapore.

As he met crowds of people gathered at the Gardens by the Bay attraction, one of them wanted to know how many children the Duke of Cambridge was planning to have.

Whether the Duchess of Cambridge shares the same desire he did not say, but the couple have frequently talked about their desire to start a family.

Around 1,000 people waited for up to three hours to see the Duke and Duchess, some of them fainting in temperatures of 31C, made worse by high humidity, the Telegraph reported.

The couple spent around 15 minutes chatting to people in the crowd and accepting flowers, cards and letters from them on the second day of their tour of the Far East.

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