Despite rumors that Kate Middleton is pregnant again, royal officials have confirmed the princess is just resting after giving birth to Princess Charlotte. Citing health concerns, Kate has been out of the public eye for months, attending only a few official functions over the summer.
Earlier this week, news site Hollywood Life and Star magazine, citing an insider, reported Kate Middleton is pregnant with the royal couple’s third child only four months after giving birth to Baby Charlotte. Celebrity news site Gossip Cop busted the rumor, however, after speaking with a royal official who confirmed to Gossip Cop exclusively that the rumor is “rubbish” and Kate is not pregnant.

In fact, it sounds as if Kate Middleton and Prince William are taking it one step at a time when it comes to expanding their family. In a recent interview, when asked about a third child, William responded, “We’ve only just had the second one. You never know what is going to happen in the future,” reports Today. For right now, Kate Middleton and her husband have their hands full with two young children.
“It is more responsibility, looking after two little ones, especially when George is around. He’s a little monkey.”

Although an original report by Star magazine can not be found, Hollywood Life reports that Middleton is “in the early stages of pregnancy” and Kate is “not taking any chances.” The tabloid continued that Kate declined to attend an August 15 wedding with her husband at the very last minute.
“The names William and Catherine Wales were written on the plan, which appeared on an antique-looking mirror,” a source claimed, according to the Daily Mail. “They were due to sit at the top table. Kate had been expected to attend.”
Hollywood Life claims that Kate Middleton missed the nuptials because she is pregnant, and asked her sister, Pippa, to take her place, citing that her husband “put his foot down and decided her heath must not be put at risk.” The source also claimed that “Kate’s third baby is apparently due in late April or early May, so she’ll likely be showing by the New Year,” and that Middleton requested an earlier royal vacation because Kate “knows the paparazzi will try everything to get the first photos of her bulging swimsuit.”
As confirmed by Gossip Cop, however, it turns out Kate Middleton, who has “been doing an amazing job as a mother,” William said according to Today, is not pregnant, and is just taking it easy after giving birth to Charlotte.
