Kate Middleton Pregnant? Duchess Sports Thin Figure Despite Baby Rumors

Kate Middleton being pregnant or not has continued to remain a question amongst the media for the past several months. While Kensington Palace has yet to confirm whether or not these rumors are true, the speculation about a possible third royal baby has yet to die down.

Although some media outlets have claimed that the duchess is sporting a baby bump, others beg to differ. The International Business Times recently reported on how Middleton's figure looked slim while on her royal tour of Canada. In fact, the duchess looked incredibly elegant during her eight days of traveling around the country.

"Kate oozed elegance in every outfit she wore during the eight days spent traveling around Canada for their first official trip as a family of four. The royal did not show any signs of a baby bump as claimed by different tabloids."

While a Kate Middleton pregnancy would be very exciting news for fans of the royal family, we're still waiting on confirmation from the royals themselves. However, Us Weekly recently claimed that the duke and duchess "want a third baby soon." A friend of the royals spoke to this.

"It would not surprise me if they were pregnant by Christmas."

Kate Middleton pregnant isn't too far off from the list of possibilities. Apparently, the duke and duchess have "both always wanted a big family," the International Business Times wrote, quoting another story from Us Weekly. While Prince William and Middleton already have two children, they are allegedly ready to add another addition to the royal family.

"I think they both would have been overwhelmed at the thought of a third child a year ago, but now it sounds perfect."

If Middleton becomes pregnant with a third child, the couple would probably lighten their already busy schedule 2017 schedule. A major reason the couple would do this is because of the extent in which Kate Middleton suffers from hyperemesis gravidarum, also known as morning sickness.

While Kate Middleton being pregnant is an exciting thought, it also could be a very stressful prospect for the duchess. Besides the royal suffering from morning sickness during her last two pregnancies, the mother also needs to be careful with the amount of travel she does. If the duchess decides to become pregnant, she will need to be very aware of the possibility of catching the Zika virus.

Although Kate Middleton isn't pregnant just yet, her husband, Prince William, has been hinting at the possibility of having a third child. Recently, the duke was in a documentary where he discussed fatherhood. While Prince William didn't directly say anything about having a third child, he talked about the joys of fatherhood.

"I'm a lot more emotional than I used to be, weirdly. I never used to get too wound up or worried about things. But now the smallest little things, you well up a little more, you get affected by the sort of things that happen around the world whatever a lot more, I think, as a father."

Kate Middleton being pregnant would be such a thrill for Prince William. The duke seems to value being a parent very much, considering he lost his mother, Princess Diana, at such a young age.

In this documentary, Prince William discussed how the loss of a parental figure has influenced him as a dad.

"You realize how precious life is and it puts it all in perspective...The idea of not being around to see your children grow up and stuff like that. I remember my mother and father taking us to charities and organizations and showing us what goes on. And I think seeing such a broad spectrum of life is really important from a young age to give you a bit of perspective."
