Kate Middleton Pregnant? Duke and Duchess Plan On Having A Third Child [Report]

Kate Middleton being pregnant isn’t too far off from the list of possibilities. While the duke and duchess are already parents to Prince George, 3 and Princess Charlotte, 1, the royal couple plan on having more children.

While Kate Middleton isn’t pregnant yet, she and Prince William have been taking many precautions in case it happens. In her previous pregnancies, the Duchess suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, also known as acute morning sickness. Not only is Middleton’s health concern, but inside sources close to the royal family said the Duchess is taking travel precautions to avoid the Zika virus. The virus is known for causing birth defects in children that haven’t been born. Unless Middleton is already pregnant, the Duchess could still be at risk of getting Zika.

If Kate Middleton is pregnant, it might be tough for the royal couple to go on their much-anticipated tour of Canada, from September 24–October 1. While pregnancy rumors continue to swirl about the Duchess of Cambridge, nothing has been confirmed by the Kensington Palace.

While Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, spend a lot of time in the spotlight the royal couple isn’t necessarily fond of constantly being in the public eye. When the family isn’t attending to their work, they’ll spend a majority of their time at their mansion in Norfolk. At their 10-bedroom house, the royal “kids are living as normal lives as possible,” a friend of Middleton told Us Weekly.

Though Kate Middleton being pregnant might be a possibility, the has been Duchess spending a lot of time with her children. While at their private home, the royal kids lead pretty regular lives. The friend of Duchess Kate Middleton said that her oldest child George, spends a lot of time playing with Matchbox cars. The young royal is allegedly “obsessed with anything with an engine,” explained the family insider.

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s youngest daughter Charlotte is essentially attached to her mother at the hip. Kate Middleton’s friend spoke about this.

“If Kate is in the study, Charlotte wants to be in the study.”

Kate Middleton being pregnant potentially has been a rumor for quite some time. In June, Life & Style published an article congratulating the Duke and Duchess on being four months pregnant with their third child. A royal insider allegedly disclosed the news to the publication.

“It’s official! She is due on Christmas. Kate and William are overjoyed.”

Besides claiming that the Duchess was expecting, the magazine also wrote that Queen Elizabeth was thrilled with the news. An insider claimed that she thought this was exciting and said it was “a fabulous present for her 90th birthday this year.”

A Kate Middleton pregnancy could be a possibility. The Duchess and Prince William supposedly want to have four children, reported Life & Style. The Kensington Palace insider said that Middleton hoped to follow the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth, by having the same amount of children as the monarch.

“They don’t mind whether No. 3 is a boy or a girl. They already have one of each, so they just want their next child to be healthy.”
