Kate Middleton’s maternity leave after giving birth to Prince Louis is quite different from the break she received after Prince George and Princess Charlotte were born.

The first difference was that after welcoming Prince Louis in April, Middleton stepped out in public less than a month later to attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding. The couple tied the knot on May 19 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

With Prince George, Middleton took about six weeks before showing herself to the public again. After she gave birth to Princess Charlotte, the Duchess of Cambridge waited for two months before she stepped outside.

According to Town & Country, Middleton’s maternity leave after Prince Louis’ birth is also the longest break from her official engagements. Prince William’s wife decided to extend her break until the fall of 2018 so she could also spend more time with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

In the past, royal fans noted that Middleton returned to work shortly after she gave birth to her two older children.

In related news, the Duchess of Cambridge made headlines recently after a handwriting expert explained Middleton’s personality based on her signature and other handwritten notes.

Michelle Dresbold told Good Housekeeping (via Express) that Middleton typically signs her name with a period in the end.

“That basically means, ‘I’m the best, period.’ People who are assured of who they are and know they’re the best in their field will put a period after their name,” Dresbold said.

The handwriting expert added that the mom of three is confident and an achiever, but she also has a sensitive side.

“The wider that upper ‘T’ stem is, the more sensitive they are. If a person has a wide ‘T’ like that, they’re sensitive to personal things, how they’re perceived about their job,” Dresbold said.

Meanwhile, style expert Daisy Schubert recently revealed that Middleton never wears orange in public or in private because she doesn’t think the shade suits her.

“I believe that Kate is a ‘winter’ color type. If my suspicion is correct, she would look dreadful in orange and does well to avoid it,” Schubert told Express.
