Prince William: Catherine and I Want Kids
05/30/2012 AT 04:45 AM EDT
"I'm just very keen to have a family and both Catherine and I, you know, are looking forward to having a family in the future," the Duke of Cambridge said during ABC's The Jubilee Queen with Katie Couric, which aired Tuesday night.
Pressed by Couric if he cared to share any news, William, 29, replied with a laugh (and typical British reserve), "You won't get anything out of me. Tight lipped."
Faced with speculation that his bride of just more than one year is or isn't pregnant, William expressed a tinge of surprise that his family planning was considered headline worthy, but he also owned up that the discussion doesn't really bother him.
He did say that the larger issue right now is whether he should assume another tour of duty as a flight lieutenant with the Royal Air Force – or take on royal duties fulltime.
More direct on the question of children was William's younger brother, Prince Harry, 27. He told Couric, "I've longed for kids since I was very, very young. And so ... I'm waiting to find the right person, someone who's willing to take on the job."
