Kate Middleton is reportedly pregnant with her fourth child. And even though no announcement has been made by the palace, a body language expert is convinced that it’s only a matter of time.

While speaking with Express, Judi James said that the Duchess of Cambridge has been repeating a certain gesture that suggests she could really be pregnant with baby number four. During her recent outings, Middleton was photographed touching her stomach.

“For many women, a gesture like this on the lower stomach can signal the kind of bump-cupping rituals that be used throughout a pregnancy,” she said.

But James also said that there’s a possibility that the gesture has more meaning to it other than a possible pregnancy.

“For Kate though, things are not that simple or direct. Kate’s signature handclasp or clutch bag carrying poses do often include this kind of a gesture so this wouldn't be unusual for her… What is interesting is that when she chatted with Eugenie at Ascot both women seemed to be producing and mirroring this pose, which might hint at a new pregnancy in the royal family although possibly not for Kate,” she said.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Middleton, Princess Eugenie, and Meghan Markle could be pregnant at the same time. But since the Duchess of Cambridge is the one who has more children, royal fans are convinced that she would make an announcement before the two other royals.

Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time that Middleton was rumored to be pregnant. In fact, the speculations have been ripe for the past couple of months.

Weeks ago, Middleton was photographed sporting what looked like a growing baby bump while at the charity polo match. This led royal fans to think that she’s indeed expecting.

And just this week, Prince William’s wife reportedly dropped two major clues about her pregnancy. Middleton changed her hair color and hairstyle, and she has not been seen in public recently.
