Kate Middleton Pregnant With Baby No. 4? Why You Shouldn’t Believe the Rumors

Welcoming a new baby is an exciting time for any family, and the royals are certainly no exception to this rule. Each time a member of the royal family announces the impending arrival of a little one, the world goes crazy with excitement.

In the case of Kate Middleton, we always knew ahead of time that she would be giving birth at the Lindo Wing of Saint Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London. The arrivals of all three of Middleton and Prince William’s children were amazing events, not only for the people of England but all around the world. It has long since been rumored that Kate is expecting her fourth child. So, is the Duchess of Cambridge actually pregnant? Here is why you should be taking the rumors with a grain of salt.

Archie Harrison, the son of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, is the newest member of the royal family. For months, we couldn’t wait for the baby to arrive, and the fact that Markle and Prince Harry kept pretty quiet about the details of the birth only added to the anticipation. When he finally was born, fans couldn’t have been happier for the couple, and family members were over the moon as well. In fact, Page Six reported that Middleton had come down with a case of “baby fever” upon meeting Archie, and was ready to have another child of her own.

There is always some sort of speculation surrounding Kate Middleton

Middleton is quite arguably one of the most photographed women in the entire world. As soon as she steps out, flashbulbs start going off like crazy. Over the years, chances are pretty good that a photographer or two has caught Middleton from an unflattering angle, or perhaps even after she ate too much dinner! Even if Middleton just happens to have her hand on her belly for a split second, suddenly there is speculation that she is expecting, and the rumors run wild.

The latest rumor is that Kate Middleton is having another baby to get out of royal duties

There is no doubt that Middleton is very busy with royal duties. As the future queen, she is always attending events and engagements, doing charity work, and supporting causes. We can only imagine that she gets tired from time to time and needs a few days to herself in order to rest. However, the latest pregnancy rumors may have taken things a bit too far.

According to Express, the reason that Middleton wants to have a fourth child is so that she can escape her royal duties. It is pretty hard to believe that Middleton would go so far as to have another baby just to get out of her responsibilities, especially given her history with hyperemesis gravidarum. That is quite a huge decision to make, and we can’t imagine Middleton having a baby just for that reason.

Kate Middleton enjoys her royal duties

Although she may get tired on occasion, Middleton really seems to enjoy carrying out her royal duties. She is always seen with a sincere smile, and the public absolutely adores her. It is perfectly understandable that Middleton needs to excuse herself from the royal spotlight at times, but having a fourth child in order to do that is a bit of a stretch, which is why we shouldn’t believe the rumors.
