Is Kate Middleton pregnant?

There are different opinions about Prince William and Middleton having a fourth baby. Some are convinced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are going to announce their fourth pregnancy soon.

However, according to Latifa Yedroudj, a journalist for Express, some aren’t that positive about the news. Middleton has shown several signs that she is unlikely to be pregnant.

First, Middleton used to suffer severe morning sickness in all three of her pregnancies. In fact, she took a leave from her duties after announcing that she was pregnant with Prince Louis.

However, the Duchess of Cambridge, who just returned to her royal duties is notably active in recent weeks. She attended a series of engagements including the royals’ Christmas celebration in Sandringham. She was even seen joining the family’s traditional Christmas service.

Middleton looked happy during the said outing. She was photographed smiling and chatting with Markle. The two duchesses were rumored to be having a feud, but it didn’t show when they reunited during the royals’ Christmas walk.

Also, Kensington Palace just announced her first solo engagement for the year. Middleton will be visiting the King Henry’s Walk Community Garden in Islington on Tuesday. There, she will meet the volunteers and learn from them how the project brings people together.

Second, there were no signs of a baby bump. Middleton is always out and about wearing tight-fitting clothes and her frame remains the same. Prior to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby announcement, the Duchess of Sussex wore loose fitting clothes to hide her growing baby bump.

Third, Prince William and Middleton’s three children have at least two years gap. Prince George was born in 2013, Princess Charlotte in 2015 and Prince Louis in 2018. So, considering these gaps, it’s unlikely that the couple will have a child this year.

Another thing to take note here is that Middleton had a difficult time in all of her three pregnancies. Thus, she might not want to experience it again. “I can't imagine Kate will want any more given the ordeal that she goes through every pregnancy. I should think that three children is enough,” an insider told People.

In related news, Middleton just turned 37 years old on Wednesday. She spent part of her special day without Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The Duke of Cambridge attended a royal engagement. On the other hand, her two kids just returned to school.
