Kate Middleton announcing fourth baby in Trooping the Colour rumor debunked

Kate Middleton did not announce her fourth baby in Trooping the Colour as one outlet claimed.

Kate Middleton and Prince William are already parents to three adorable children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. However, many are expecting that they will have another baby and royal fans have been waiting for their next baby announcement.

Kate Middleton fourth baby announcement rumor

Kate Middleton and Prince William had gotten to come around the idea of having another baby, New Idea claimed. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were planning to announce it at the Trooping the Colour, the tabloid added.

The outlet went on and claimed that Middleton believed it would be the perfect time as a tribute to the Queen. Trooping the Colour is an annual event that served as Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday celebration.

“She has always wanted a fourth and the Queen often encouraged Wills to have four just like she did to ‘share the load’ of royal responsibility,” the unnamed source said.

The bogus insider also added that the Queen would be delighted about the new addition to Prince William and Middleton’s family. 

“If it’s announced on Trooping the Colour, it will and the festive atmosphere,” the source added.

Baby announcement debunked

Gossip Cop examined the report and debunked it because it is not true. The rumor-debunking site noted that the outlet had to work on its timeline.

First, it claimed that Prince William just agreed to a fourth kid in April. After two months, it claimed that the royal couple would be making a baby announcement.

The outlet noted that getting pregnant doesn’t work like that. New Idea also assumed that the British public is in need of some good news from the royals. Prince Harry and Meghan Markel just announced the birth of their daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. Gossip Cop noted that it should be enough “good news.”

Also, Prince William and Kate Middleton did not attend the Trooping the Colour. The annual event has been scaled down since last year due to the pandemic.

In the U.K., only 30 people are allowed for outdoor gatherings and six to two households for indoor events. Only Queen Elizabeth II and her cousin, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, were present at the Trooping the Colour Saturday, People reported.

Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward also skipped the celebration. All of them also missed the event last year in Windsor Castle. Only the Queen was present at the Trooping the Colour last year due to the pandemic.
