KATE Middleton could try for a fourth child as she “doesn’t enjoy being at the forefront of royal duties”, according to a royal commentator.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, already has her hands full with Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, four, and one-year-old Prince Louis, but could add to her royal brood.

Speaking to Fabulous Digital, royal commentator Phil Dampier said: “It wouldn’t surprise me if they had a fourth child.

“Not only does she love family life in Norfolk, to be honest it gives her an excuse to not be at the forefront of royal duties for a bit longer, which I don’t think she enjoys.

“I think Kate’s been interacting with the public and doing very well recently, but from what I’m told she’d rather be at home with the children.”

Phil said he was initially surprised that the duke and duchess opted to have more than two children but speculated it was “very much down to her as she came from a family of three.”


Bookies' odds are also falling on the duchess announcing she is to have a fourth child.

It is odds on at 4/5 for Kate announcing a pregnancy soon, according to betting trends experts Bookmakers.tv
A Bookmakers.tv spokesman said: “Ever since the Duchess of Cambridge said she was broody earlier this year, the odds of her and Wills adding to their family have decreased considerably.
“With her oldest, Prince George, growing up rapidly before her eyes, the smart money is on Kate to announce she is expecting her fourth child before the end of 2019".

Kate is the eldest of the Middleton siblings, followed by Pippa, 35, and James, 32.

Now Phil said it wouldn’t shock him if the couple were keen to have another girl, so Princess Charlotte would have a sister.

Phil advised: “A fourth one could mean she’d have two girls and two boys.

“This would mean a sister for Charlotte but also a child who is a similar age to Louis, so that would be a nice dynamic.”

The royal expert said Kate is also friendly with Princess Mary of Denmark, who has four children of her own – two boys and two girls between the ages of 13 and eight.

He said: “Not saying she models herself on her, but they get on well and she’s seen how she’s coped with it well.”

Kate Middleton gave birth to her youngest child, Prince Louis, in April 2018, and he’s quickly becoming a firm favourite royal family member.

The Cambridges are currently enjoying a family break to Mustique, and Prince George celebrated his sixth birthday on the luxury Caribbean island.

During her pregnancies, Kate is said to have suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), which is much worse than the normal morning sickness experienced during pregnancy.

But Phil said that the duchess “didn’t suffer with the morning sickness quite as bad with the third as she did with the first two.”

Unlike regular pregnancy sickness, HG may not get better by 14 weeks and for many needs hospital treatment.

Sufferers may be sick numerous times each day and be unable to keep food or drink down, which can massively impact their everyday life.

If the Cambridges did have another child, it would close in age to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who was born on May 6.
