Kate Middleton is already planning either a new brother or sister for Prince George and Princess Charlotte after it was alleged that she has already held discussions with Prince william about adding a new member to her family.
According to The Express, an insider has revealed that the Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge both want to have at least three children, each of which they want to be in close proximity in age.
This has led British bookmakers to slash the odds on a new child of theirs being born in 2016. The source explained.
“Kate is one of three and is very close to her sister Pippa and brother James. Although the Cambridges already have a boy and a girl they haven’t definitely decided to stop there.”
“They both benefited from growing up with siblings who were close in age. Of course Charlotte is still only a baby but in a year’s time, who knows?”
Kate Middleton, 33, is the eldest child of Michael and Carole Middleton, while 31-year-old Carole Middleton was born 20 months after Kate. James Middleton, 28, followed in 1987, and the trio are all extremely close.
This, coupled with how close 33-year-old Prince William is to 30-year-old Prince Harry, is the main reason why the pair want to have a new child as quickly as possible.
Because of these reports, bookmakers in England have started to reduce the odds on the Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge’s new child being born in either 2016 or 2017. While there are those who believe Middleton could give birth in 2016, it’s believed to be more likely that she will do just that in 2017 instead.
Prince William has long made it clear that he wants to put his family first and try and provide an upbringing as normal as possible for his children before he becomes the King Of England.
An aide told the Express, “People forget that William is second-in-line to the throne, not the heir apparent. While he knows all too well the importance of his role in the monarchy, he has no desire to supersede his father.”
“Prince Charles fully supports William’s decision to put his family first. He wants William to be the best possible father he can be.”
Kate Middleton gave birth to the third in line to the throne, Prince George Of Cambridge, on 22 July, 2013, while Princess Charlotte Of Cambridge was born just over 3 months ago on 2 May, 2015.
