Is Kate Middleton pregnant? That’s the top question on people’s minds after rumors persist that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a third baby with husband Prince William. The royal couple has two children, a son, George, three, and a daughter, Charlotte, one.
Although Prince William and Kate Middleton seem happy as a family of four, multiple outlets question if Kate Middleton is pregnant or not. The rumors started in 2015 and only intensified in the summer. As The Inquisitr reported, some saw Middleton sporting an alleged baby bump in a video that circulated. When the shocking video was captured and subsequently released by Kensington Palace’s official Twitter account, the royal couple was perusing the grounds at Tresco Garden. Middleton wore a navy blazer and had her hands folded over what some say is a baby bump.
One question surrounding whether or not Kate Middleton is pregnant is the due date, which keeps on switching. At first, The Inquisitr found out via a report from Life & Style that The Duchess was expecting twins. That particular report dated back to April, and then, three months later, the same outlet reported that Kate and William are expecting one child, who is allegedly due in December.

The latest rumor to circulate over whether Kate Middleton is pregnant or not is that baby planning could put a damper on sister Pippa Middleton’s wedding. According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Prince William and Kate Middleton plan to get pregnant before Christmas. Us Weekly also corroborates that report as a family friend told the outlet, “It would not surprise me if they were pregnant by Christmas.” However, there’s more to this story than meets the eye. Celeb Dirty Laundry, suggests that the royal couple isn’t letting Pippa Middleton’s wedding get in the way of their family plan.
“This is going to be great news for the royal couple, but bad news for Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa Middleton, who is currently planning her wedding. Of course, Kate Middleton and Prince William won’t let Pippa Middleton and James Matthews’ wedding stop them from getting pregnant.”
News broke that Princess Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa became engaged to long-time boyfriend and financier James Matthews back in July. The two were engaged during a getaway to England’s Lake District.
As for Kate and William’s baby news? Celeb Dirty Laundry poses a theory that this alleged upcoming pregnancy for the happy couple is an attempt to ward off the bad press that they’ve been receiving. The Inquisitr has reported about the bad image that Prince William and Kate Middleton allegedly suffer from. Celeb Dirty Laundry was also behind this tip, as they cited the couple’s “lavish vacations” as a high priority instead of tending to royal duties.

The site called the couple’s lack of commitment to charitable causes “lazy” and went on to say that they were, “the laziest royal couple in history for their work-allergic attitude towards their charities and royal engagements.” An additional claim was made that Queen Elizabeth was very angry with the royal couple for this reason.
Despite this report, The Inquisitr pointed out via a report from Hello Magazine, that the two cut their France vacation short, so Prince William could tend to his duties at the East Anglian Air Ambulance charity.
