Is Kate Middleton Catching Baby Fever From Meghan Markle?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed Baby Archie recently, and he couldn’t be more perfect. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were beaming with pride as they walked into Saint George’s Hall of Windsor Castle, holding their sleeping newborn and posing for the first pictures.

They couldn’t stop smiling as they said a few words about parenthood, and how much they are both loving the wonderful experience. Archie seems to have had a positive effect on both of his parents, as we have never seen Meghan and Harry look happier.

Parenthood is a natural journey for the royal couple, and now that the members of the royal family are beginning to meet him, it is possible the effect may be rubbing off. In particular, some people are wondering if Kate Middleton may be catching baby fever from her sister-in-law. So, is baby Archie causing Kate to want yet another child?

Science says Kate could actually get baby fever. While many people think that “baby fever” is nothing more than an expression, studies show it is a real thing. Babies can be addicting, with their sweetness and innocence, not to mention their wonderful smell and the feel of their soft, perfect skin.

It’s not unheard of for women to catch baby fever when they hold someone else’s newborn in their arms. Even mothers who either thought that they didn’t want any more children or thought that they never wanted children at all. Further, psychological journal Emotion claims women and men can catch baby fever.

Kate Middleton has officially met Baby Archie

Kate and William have officially visited baby Archie Harrison for the first time, and there is no doubt that Kate simply melted the moment she laid eyes on the newborn. The Duchess of Cambridge is wonderful with children, as anyone can see when they observe her with her own three kids. As babies, Kate looked overjoyed as she held them in her arms, proving that the connection between a mother and baby is definitely real.

Does Kate Middleton want four children?

Queen Elizabeth has four children, and there is always the possibility that Kate may want to follow in her footsteps. She may have always envisioned herself with a large family and considering as how the Cambridge family lives in a massive 20-bedroom apartment at Kensington Palace, there is certainly enough room.

Anyone can see just by watching Kate with her children that she is a great mother, and when we take into consideration that she is the same child-bearing age as Meghan, it makes sense that she may be considering one more.

Does Kate Middleton want another girl?

William and Kate already have two boys and one girl, so perhaps they’d like to give themselves the chance to have another daughter. Two boys and two girls seem like the perfect balance for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and we know that Princess Charlotte would most likely be over the moon at the prospect of a little sister. However, if Kate and William are, in fact, planning another child, royal fans will be ecstatic no matter if they welcome a new prince or a princess.

Does Kate Middleton have baby fever?

Although Kate has had an extremely rough time with her pregnancies in the past, suffering from a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum, she may just be willing to put up with it one more time in order to have another baby. The world would love to see yet another royal baby welcomed into the world. However, Kate has effectively shut down rumors of a fourth child so far by continuing to wear slim-fitting outfits and even drinking a beer in public.

Then again, Kate recently said she was feeling “very broody” when making conversation with the public while on tour in Northern Ireland earlier this year, so we’ll just have to wait and see if they grow their family even more.
