Kate Middleton is, allegedly, pregnant with baby number four.
According to New Idea, Kate Middleton has been attending her royal engagements with a growing baby bump. And it’s not something that she can still hide.
After all, a source for the tabloid claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge is already four months on the way. And it’s only a matter of time before she confirms her pregnancy to the world.
Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors persist
However, the tabloid was unable to provide photos of Middleton from her recent engagements that could prove that she’s pregnant. Instead, the tabloid posted photos of the future queen consort from years ago and while she was pregnant with her other children.
New Idea has been insisting throughout the past couple of years now that Middleton is pregnant. And they have also been suggesting that Prince William’s wife regularly drops clues about her pregnancy.
However, time and time again, the tabloid is proven to be spreading fake stories about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Royal experts weigh in on the possibility
This time around, they quoted two royal experts who weighed in on Middleton’s possible pregnancy.
“Kate would love to have a second girl. She is 40 next year, so I’m sure if she’s going to have a fourth child, it will be soon,” royal commentator Phil Dampier said.
However, Dampier didn’t say that Middleton is already pregnant. He simply said that it’s possible for the royal to consider getting pregnant again before she turns 40.
In fact, Dampier even said that Middleton getting pregnant again may cause problems with the royal family because they rely on her and Prince William too much.
“So, there is a dilemma as Kate getting pregnant means she is less available for royal duties. But she seems determined to do things her way,” he said.
Kate Middleton is maternal
Meanwhile, royal expert Penny Junor described Prince William’s wife as maternal. Junor also said that Middleton has a close relationship with her siblings. So, this could be one of the reasons why she wants to have a big family.
However, Junor didn’t also claim that Kate Middleton is pregnant. So, it is obvious that the tabloid’s claims are just made up.
