Prince William had a frank discussion with Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II about Kate Middleton several years ago.

In the book “Making of a Royal Romance,” royal expert Katie Nicholl said that Prince William was having second thoughts about his future with Middleton, so he decided to sit down with Prince Charles and the Queen. Both royals advised the Duke of Cambridge to not rush into anything.

The trio’s discussion took place after Prince William canceled his plans to celebrate Christmas with Middleton and her side of the family. Middleton broke down into tears when she heard Prince William’s decision.

Meanwhile, there is another reason why the Queen advised Prince William to not rush into marrying Middleton. In the same book, it was revealed that Her Majesty wanted to make sure that Middleton could find a job first before marrying her grandson.

The Queen had grave concerns over the Duchess of Cambridge’s lack of profession and identity, and this wasn’t a surprise to anyone because the monarch is known for being one of the hardest working members of the royal family.

Meanwhile, Middleton made headlines this week after she was rumored to be pregnant with her fourth child. A tabloid claimed that Middleton is pregnant with a girl. However, Kensington Palace said that an official statement will soon be released to deny the reports.

Bookies Coral said that the odds of Middleton having another baby next year are at 3/1. Harry Aitkenhead, a spokesperson for Coral, said that a fourth baby is a huge possibility for Middleton and Prince William.

“We’ve taken some bets over the last two weeks or so on it happening and there’s a real buzz around the royal family at the moment with Meghan expecting,” he told Express.

But the only pregnant member of Prince Charles’ family is Meghan Markle, who is expected to give birth sometime in the Spring of 2019. There have been rumors claiming that Markle is pregnant with twins, however, this hasn’t been confirmed or denied by the palace.
