Prince William and Kate Middleton Are Reportedly Planning to ‘Break Away’ From Tradition With A Surprise Announcement

Prince William and Kate Middleton are arguably one of the most famous couples in the world, and when anything new happens in their lives, fans are all ears. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently made the news for Kate’s suspected “shrug” toward her husband on their recent Christmas special, but now, there is speculation surrounding a surprise announcement the two will reportedly make sometime in the next few weeks — and fans think they already know what it is.

William and Kate are always in the spotlight

Ever since these two started dating back in the early 2000s, they have never been able to escape the limelight. William and Kate met at university, and they went public with their relationship in 2004. Kate was essentially a part of the family long before the two wed; she dated William for roughly six years before he proposed. The two were married in 2011 in a televised wedding that reached millions, and they have since welcomed three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. For a while, there has been speculation the two aren’t done having kids.

The two recently dealt with somewhat of a scandal

Earlier this year, there were rumors that William was cheating on Kate with family friend Rose Hanbury. However, many believed that he wouldn’t do such a thing after everything his mother went through when his father was cheating. Nothing much ever came of the rumors, though it did make some question how happy William and Kate actually were.

Even more recently, in a televised Christmas special William and Kate did alongside baker Mary Berry, Kate appeared to shrug William off of her when he tried to touch her shoulder. The public noticed, and rumors swirled that there was something going on in the couple’s relationship. However, the two haven’t addressed the incident publicly.

William and Kate will reportedly make a surprise announcement soon

Though fans have been nervous for the couple’s relationship after the shrugging incident, royal insiders say the two are gearing up to make a special announcement, and it seems it will break from typical royal tradition. “Next year is going to be busy for the Cambridges,” Royal expert Omid Scobie told Daily Express. “Expect royal announcements over the holidays, which I think is a slight break away from tradition.” The commentator also added that though announcements over the holidays are rare, it’s such a quiet time of year that it’s not necessarily a bad time to announce something. But nobody is certain what the announcement will be.

Many people think Kate is pregnant with a fourth baby

Ever since Kate and William welcomed Prince Louis in 2018, fans have wondered whether the two will have a fourth baby. Some suspected that Archie gave William and Kate baby fever, though many months later, they still have not announced a pregnancy. It’s unclear if the rumors surrounding the supposed royal announcement are entirely true, but if they are, many are certain it will be that the Cambridges are growing their family once more.
