It is unlikely that Prince William and Kate Middleton will be having a fourth baby —and there are several reasons for this, reports Us Weekly. Firstly, the Duchess of Cambridge comes from a family of five and is one of three children. Royal expert Nick Bullen explained this point to the publication. “I think they feel that they’ve got a pretty perfect family,” he said. “I think Kate was always keen to follow with her parents … and have that sort of family of five. She’s [now] matched it. And I think my view is [that] they’ll probably stop here.” Additionally, during all three of her pregnancies, Kate suffered from extreme morning sickness, also known as hyperemesis gravidarum. While the condition didn’t prevent her from having three babies, Bullen believes it may factor into her decision to have a fourth.
As for the Duke of Cambridge, it’s likely that three children hits the sweet spot for him as well. During a royal appearance in January 2020, Kate revealed to a fan that she wasn’t sure the prince would be on board with another baby, per Us Weekly. “I don’t think William wants any more,” the duchess said. It seems that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have plenty to occupy their time aside from raising the three children they already have, including promoting their charities and foundation.
