Here we go again! Royals fans think Kate Middleton might be pregnant with her fourth child. Here’s why.
There’s no better distraction that speculating whether or not a celebrity is pregnant, and right now, Bump Watch 2020 currently has a stronghold on Kate Middleton. Is she or isn’t she expecting her fourth child with Prince William? I mean, what else is there to do in quarantine?
But we’ve seen this before, many times. Last September, she was seen playing with kids, which obviously means she’s planning to expand her family. And before that, in March, she chatted it up with a 5-month-old little boy telling his father, “He’s gorgeous. It makes me feel broody.” For those of you who don’t speak British slang, “broody” basically means “nesting.” Like, Kate was saying she felt like she wanted another baby. Or was she just making small talk?
But eagle-eyed fans have some new evidence they’d like to present to the court of public opinion as to why Duchess Kate might be knocked up with a pandemic baby. Here are exhibits A through E, which they believe point to another Cambridge bun in the oven. If it’s true, Kate would be the first royal since the Queen to have four children.
Jury, it’s your call.
Exhibit A: Hand placement

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share new photographs of their family with @DavidAttenborough. The photographs were taken earlier this week in the gardens of Kensington Palace, after The Duke and Sir David attended an outdoor screening of Sir David’s upcoming feature film 🎞️ ‘David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet’. With a shared passion for protecting the natural world, they continue to support one another in their missions to tackle some of the biggest environmental challenges our planet faces. This includes working together on The @EarthshotPrize 🌍 the most prestigious global environment prize in history – further details of which will be shared in the coming weeks. When they met, Sir David gave Prince George a tooth from a giant shark 🦷 the scientific name of which is carcharocles megalodon (‘big tooth’). Sir David found the tooth on a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s, embedded in the island’s soft yellow limestone which was laid down during the Miocene period some 23 million years ago. Carcharocles is believed to have grown to 15 metres in length, which is about twice the length of the Great White, the largest shark alive today.
Kate and William’s latest family photo shoot captures Kate with her hand over her midsection while looking awfully cheery. Plus, famous body language expert type Judy James says while Kate is often spotted cupping her hand over her stomach, pregnant or not, here, she’s positioning it in a semi-protective way. You can see all of the other clues Kate drops in this thorough video by Royal Insider.
Exhibit B: Hairstyle
While the rest of us are showing our roots and trying to disguise our botched at-home quarantine bangs, Kate has lobbed off some of her locks and gone with a low-maintenance style similar to the hairstyle’s she’s sported with some of her other pregnancies.
Exhibit C: Ireland
In early March, right before coronavirus hit, Kate and William visited Ireland, which included a stop at the Guinness brewery in Dublin. We all know Kate loves a good pub beer, but she was never seen actually drinking her pint. Hmmmm….was the couple trying for a baby at this point? Seems plausible.
Exhibit D: PDA
Kate isn’t usually affectionate with William in public, but recently, she was spotted getting affectionate with her husband during a stop in South Wales, which is very un-royal of her, as even minor PDA is considered a royal faux pas. The two were seen tapping into their inner child at a seaside arcade, no less.
Exhibit E: Prince William
Back to body language expert Judy James. She says he seems to be suppressing a smile these days, which may suggest he’s trying to keep some good news to himself. Is that true? I guess it’s hard to tell when you’re wearing a face mask.
