Kate Middleton is directly involved in Prince William’s priority and future role in the monarchy.
The Duke of Cambridge is the second in line to the throne. He is expected to take the lead in the monarchy after Prince Charles.
Prince William’s wife is directly involved in his royal duties. As the future king, Prince William has to ensure the line of succession so he has to produce his own heir.
“In truth, his [William’s] number-one priority, securing the line of succession, is one of the prerequisites of the job as an heir to the throne,” royal correspondent Robert Jobson wrote in his book “William and Kate: The Love Story.”
Since Middleton is Prince William’s wife, she is directly involved in the duke’s priority. Prince William would not have a hard time convincing his wife to bear him children because the duchess loves kids. For months, there are rumors that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are already expecting their fourth baby together. However, the palace has yet to confirm the speculations.
According to royal historian Juliet Rieden, Middleton confessed that she “would love another child.” She admitted that it was unlikely but added, “Who knows?” Also, in a recent sighting, Middleton was spotted feeling broody, suggesting that she really wants to have another baby.
According to body language expert Judi James, Middleton is dropping more pregnancy clues lately. The Duchess of Cambridge’s actions have changed and she appears more confident suggesting that she is preparing for her matriarchal role. She also shows less nerves and communicates eloquently in her speeches.
Also, Middleton has been seen touching her belly more often — something that expectant moms often do. However, James said that Middleton has this mannerism whether she’s pregnant or not, so the belly touching gesture is not a reliable pregnancy clue.
Aside from the aforementioned clues, many are convinced that the biggest hint is Middleton’s new hairstyle. The duchess changed her hair color when she dropped Prince George and Princess Charlotte for their first day of school.
Netizens said that Middleton changed her look whenever she announced her previous pregnancies. This prompted many to wait for another baby announcement from the Cambridges.
