Kate Middleton is allegedly pregnant with her fourth child, and she dropped a telling clue during her recent engagement with Prince William.

In its May 31 issue, Woman’s Day claimed that Middleton kept touching her stomach during the outing. And this allegedly shows that she’s being protective towards her unborn child.

“Kate was very protective of her stomach and could be seen consciously holding her hand over it. She’s very slender but there could’ve been a hint of a little bump,” the source said.

However, some royal experts are convinced that these are not indications that Middleton is pregnant. After all, she suffered extreme morning sickness while pregnant with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

So, until she goes MIA on her royal engagements, one cannot assume that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting another child.

However, the tabloid’s unnamed insisted that it’s possible for Middleton and Prince William to be expecting baby number four. After all, the couple has always wanted to have a huge family.

And since the past couple of years have been very difficult for the royal family due to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Megxit, as well as Prince Philip’s death, the Cambridges want their family to have something to look forward to.

“Both have always wanted a big family. And after all the troubles of the past couple of years, a new baby could be just the tonic for the royal family. Prince Charles in particular is very fond of his grandchildren and would be delighted with another little one to spoil,” the source said.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. There is no proof that Middleton is pregnant with her fourth child. And if she is, Kensington Palace would’ve already made an official announcement.

Throughout the years, there have been speculations that Middleton and Prince William are trying to get pregnant. Some tabloids have also claimed that Middleton and Prince William are already expecting another child.

However, several years passed but the royal couple only has three children. And it’s unclear if they will add another member to their family in the coming years.

Prior to the pandemic, Middleton was asked if she wants to have another child. She said that she’s open to the idea, but she doesn’t think that Prince William is up for it.

After all, raising three children must have been very difficult for Prince William and Middleton even though they get a lot of help from their children’s nanny.
