Could there be the sound of tiny footsteps at Kensington Palace? If the latest rumours are to be believed, Kate Middleton could be expecting child No. 4.
The Duchess of Cambridge recently celebrated her 37th birthday, but it turns out she could have some more joyous news on the way. Middleton famously married Prince William back in 2011 and has slowly become the nation’s sweetheart.
While Kate isn’t showing signs of an impending baby, multiple sources have reported that Kate and Wills are closer to making a big announcement. Apparently, odds of Middleton announcing a baby bump in 2019 have been slashed to 2/1.
Kate and William could be slowly building their own Royal football team if a new baby joins Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. The expected baby would be sixth in line to the throne, pushing the likes of Prince Harry further down the pecking order.
Speaking to the Sun Online, a spokesperson from bookmakers.tv explained, “The odds of Kate and Wills sharing some good news soon have taken another plunge.”
“The latest betting definitely suggests there could be an announcement around the corner and when it comes bookies should brace themselves for the biggest royal betting frenzy of all time.”
It could be a busy year for the Royal Family welcoming new faces due to the fact Meghan Markle is expecting her first child later this year. With recent reports of a growing divide between Middleton and Markle, it will be interesting to see how a double pregnancy would affect the Royal Family’s dynamic.
Whether Kate is expecting or not, she’s not letting rumours of an impending pregnancy stop her carrying on with her royal duties. Only recently, she was spotted attending a church service with the Queen and Prince William.
It’s not all fun and knitting hats though. Kate is known to suffer from hyperemesis gravidarum — a condition that involved heavy nausea and vomiting. With her previous pregnancies, Kate has been forced to rest, but we’ll have to wait and see if it’s the same next time around.
We’ll keep our ear close to the ground and let you know if Buck Palace makes it official.
