Kate Middleton is rumored to be pregnant again with her and Prince William’s fourth child. And royal fans are convinced that her due date will be next spring.

On the online forum site Quora, a royal fan claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge could already be expecting another baby. However, she is still waiting for the right time to make an announcement.

It is common for royal moms to wait until the third month of pregnancy before they share the news with the world. During all three of her pregnancies, an announcement was only made after Middleton reached the end of her first trimester.

Spring season is between the months of March and June. And if Middleton is really pregnant at the moment, this means that she is already more than three months pregnant. However, she doesn’t have a visible baby bump, which could mean that she isn’t expecting.

Gwendolyn Smith, a retired English Language Arts teacher, said that it’s been months since Middleton was rumored to give birth in the spring. This means that she should have already been pregnant a long time ago.

“Hasn't it been a few months since those rumors first hit the tabloids? Her waistline still looks slim, and I haven't noticed anything looking remotely like a bump. Perhaps she is lucky and doesn't show until far into the pregnancy,” she said.

Smith also reacted to the rumors that Middleton wants to keep getting pregnant so that she could avoid her work as a royal. The royal fan said that even though Prince William’s wife is on maternity leave, it is likely that she also doing her work at home.

“I'm not a mother, but my sister and every other mom I know say the hard work begins after the baby is born. The Cambridges have three young children, and kids are a handful, even with help. If the Duchess of Cambridge goes on maternity leave, she may not be making loads of public appearances, but she will be working, make no mistake. It will just be at home, with her children! ” she said.
