• Kate Middleton is reportedly pregnant
  • Kate Middleton's due date is reportedly at the end of the year
  • Kate Middleton is rumored to be expecting a baby girl 

Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors have been circulating throughout the past couple of months. But a recent report claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge is already pregnant with her fourth child, and she will give birth in the latter part of 2020.

A source told New Idea that the royal family has already been informed about Middleton’s fourth pregnancy. And Prince William’s wife has also been given the green light to share the exciting news with the entire world.

“The immediate family has known about the pregnancy for some time, and while they were forced to postpone the announcement earlier this month amid Meghan and Harry’s bombshell, the Queen now feels this is the perfect time to share their happy news,” the source said.

Even though there hasn’t been any confirmation regarding the gender of Prince William and Middleton’s fourth child, the tabloid is speculating on the possibility of the royal couple welcoming a baby girl.

The tabloid also revealed that Middleton herself dropped a clue that she’s pregnant with a baby girl after she said that she’s been longing for Princess Charlotte to have a playmate. The 4-year-old has reportedly been helping design her baby sister’s nursery, and their entire family couldn’t wait to meet the little princess.

Meanwhile, the royal source also claimed that Middleton’s stylist, Virginia Chadwyck-Healey, purposely dressed the future queen in a maternity-style outfit when she visited a children’s hospital. The Duchess of Cambridge’s recycled dress at the BAFTAs was also refitted accordingly.

“Virginia was given strict guidelines to ensure Kate’s pregnancy was visible to the world despite still being in the relatively early stages – putting her in a gown that shows off her happy news and also ensuring that her frock was a show-stopper,” the source said.

Middleton’s Alexander McQueen gown at the award shows accentuated her slender frame. However, it didn’t make Prince William’s wife look as though she’s pregnant.

However, Middleton’s alleged pregnancy hasn’t been confirmed by the palace. As such, it would still be best to take the claims with a grain of salt.
