Kate Middleton and Prince William were rumored to be expecting their first child together, but apparently, the report was not true.
Kate Middleton and Prince William are already parents to three adorable kids — Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2. However, royal fans couldn’t stop speculating about their fourth baby after the duchess delivered her youngest.
Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors
Kate Middleton was expecting her fourth baby, according to New Idea, last spring. The outlet teased readers with a supposed picture of the Duchess of Cambridge taken last May.
It quoted an unnamed royal commentator suggesting that the future queen consort had wanted a fourth baby “for some time.” The recent lockdown allegedly increased the chances of the Cambridges welcoming another baby after Prince Louis.
“I’ve always thought the lockdown will result in a baby boom so it wouldn’t surprise me if the Cambridges join the club,” the insider said.
However, the outlet didn’t offer any concrete evidence supporting its headline that Middleton was pregnant. It has been nearly eight months since the tabloid published the report, and the duchess has been active in various engagements. There are no signs showing that Middleton was expecting her fourth baby.
The tabloid didn’t stop from there, after a month, it published another report suggesting that Prince William confirmed his wife’s pregnancy. The magazine misled the readers by quoting anonymous “palace insiders.”
The tabloid alleged that the lockdown inspired Prince William to consider having more kids. Middleton was reportedly overjoyed about her husband open to having another child after their youngest.

Royal pregnancy rumor debunked
It has been almost a year since the report was published, and Prince William and Kate Middleton didn’t make any pregnancy announcement. Apparently, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are not expecting their fourth baby, Gossip Cop reported.
Also, the outlet was inconsistent with its report because after publishing the pregnancy report, it claimed that Prince William and Middleton traveled to the Isles of Scilly for another baby. The future king and queen were allegedly trying to conceive, which means that its previous reports about the alleged “confirmed” pregnancy were not correct.
Kate and Meghan’s pregnancy predicted
Meanwhile, former royal aide Paul Burrell predicted that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle might get pregnant at the same time this year back in June. Burrell said the Cambridges will have four babies, and the Sussexes will welcome Archie’s sibling.
He pointed out Markle’s body language, in particular, the way she hid her belly. However, in November, the Duchess of Sussex announced that she had a miscarriage back in July and lost her second baby.
