Will Kate Middleton be pregnant with baby No. 3 while serving as matron of honor in her sister Pippa Middleton’s wedding?
The Duchess of Cambridge fans are wondering if Kate and her husband Prince William will be adding to their brood in the not-so-distant future. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, sources have said that Kate and William want “at least three kids” and that they want all of their children to be close in age.
“Since Kate Middleton became pregnant with Princess Charlotte just after Prince George turned 1, fans of the royal family believe that she will become pregnant with her third child very soon, as it has been about [ten] weeks since Princess Charlotte’s first birthday.”
If Kate Middleton was to become pregnant over the next couple of months, that could very well mean that she’d be with child when her sister Pippa gets married. Pippa Middleton recently became engaged to her beau, hedge fund manager James Matthews and chatter about her upcoming wedding has filled the internet. While many are wondering who Pippa might choose to design her dress (she is expected to choose a British designer and go with a modern style), others have turned their curiosity to Kate.
Interestingly enough, People Magazine reports that Kate Middleton may not even be in her sister’s wedding, never mind serve as Pippa’s matron of honor!
“Kate would upstage her sister. It’s a tricky situation for Pippa. She would want her sister by her side, as who else would she trust to make things go well? But if your sister is a future Queen, she is going to upstage the bride and draw attention. Kate would want to be in the background as much as possible,” explained veteran royals author Judy Wade.
If Kate Middleton is pregnant by the time Pippa Middleton has her wedding, that could cause further complications. Don’t forget, Kate Middleton has suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum commonly known as severe morning sickness. Duchess Kate was hospitalized whilst pregnant with Prince George and was cared for at home by a doctor whilst pregnant with Princess Charlotte. Fortunately, this condition subsides after the first trimester — generally — but could put a damper on Pippa’s pre-wedding festivities if the timing coincides.
Of course, if Kate Middleton was pregnant during Pippa’s wedding, that would cause even more of a frenzy. All eyes would be on Kate, what she was wearing and how lovely she looks. Prince George and Princess Charlotte are also expected to be stars at what should be Pippa Middleton’s show.
On July 14, Life & Style “confirmed” their report that Kate Middleton was four months pregnant with her third child. Judging by recent photos of the princess, this isn’t true. The Duchess of Cambridge is very thin and has sprouted a baby bump with her first two pregnancies fairly early on. If she was already pregnant with her third child — and she was four months along — she’d be showing. That — and she’d be on bed rest while dealing with the aforementioned hyperemesis gravidarum. Kate has been out and about over the past few months, however, keeping up with her royal duties without issue.
When Kate Middleton is pregnant, there will be an official announcement from Kensington Palace. Until then, anything you read is nothing more than just a rumor — especially anything that you see that claims that Kate and William are expecting twins. The tabloids just won’t give that up!
