Is Kate Middleton pregnant with her fourth child with Prince William? This is what a tabloid report is claiming about the duchess, but there is no evidence supporting the rumor.

In Touch magazine recently put an outrageous headline on its cover, saying, "Princess Kate Baby No. 4." An unnamed "palace insider" claimed in the report that Prince William's wife is "expecting" again less than a year after she gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte's younger brother, Prince Louis.

The so-called royal insider further claimed that Middleton is currently three months pregnant and that she had been sporting a baby bump when she stepped out on Feb. 27. The questionable tipster also asserted that Prince William had been "hesitant" about adding another child to their brood of three, but the duchess reportedly twisted his arm on the issue.

“They haven’t told their kids or anyone else yet," the so-called source claimed.

However, there is absolutely no truth to these claims. Gossip Cop confirmed with Kensington Palace that the report is a fabrication and that Middleton is not pregnant with her fourth child. A palace spokesperson assured the outlet that no such announcement was made by them.

While the tabloid claimed that it had seen Middleton sporting a baby bump on Feb. 27, photos of the duchess from that day contrasted this statement. Middleton and Prince William had been in Northern Ireland on that day, playing soccer with young schoolchildren at the Windsor Park stadium in Belfast, according to People.

In Touch put a possibly edited image of Middleton sporting what looked like a baby bump on their cover. The snap seemed to have been taken from their recent trip as she was wearing the red Carolina Herrera coat she sported on the day she and Prince William arrived in Northern Ireland.

However, another picture taken of Middleton arriving at the stadium that day showed no sign of a baby bump anywhere.

Snaps of Middleton at the Empire Music Hall later that evening also showed the duchess looking slim in a mint-colored gown, proving the pregnancy rumors completely wrong.

This is not the first time that this tabloid has published false claims about Middleton and her husband, Prince William. Last year, In Touch also put out a story that Middleton was being named queen while Prince William was going to be king ahead of his father, Prince Charles.

But there is no chance of that happening while Prince Charles is alive as the rules of succession have long been set and not even Queen Elizabeth II has the power to choose the heir to the throne, People reported.
