AceShowbiz - If Prince William has his way, there will be no more children for him and Kate Middleton. During the royal couple's first public appearance since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they are stepping back from royal duties, the Duchess of Cambridge spilled that her husband is against having fourth child.
The royal couple was visiting Bradford, Yorkshire on Wednesday, January 15 to meet leaders from various different faith and community groups. Outside the City Hall, the Duchess talked with the public, and when speaking to a 25-year-old fan identified as Josh Macplace, she was overheard telling him, "I don't think William wants any more."
The mother of three reportedly made the statement after Josh, who has autism and DiGeorge syndrome, informed her that he had sent her and her husband cards congratulating them on the births of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. During the occasion, she also thanked him for giving her a hug.
Kate has hinted on William's stance on the possibility of them expanding their family nearly a year earlier. During the second day of the royal tour in Northern Ireland back in February 2019, the 38-year-old was heard saying, "He's gorgeous. It makes me feel broody," when meeting a 5-month-old baby boy.
Kate's statement prompted the baby's father to boldly ask her, "Baby number four?" Not giving a definite yes or no response, she laughed and responded to the question with, "I think William would be a little worried."
The Wednesday outing was Kate and William's first joint engagement in 2020. The pair seemed to be in good spirits, though body language expert Blanca Cobb told Cosmopolitan, "It's unusual to see William and Kate with such rounded shoulders. It could be that they're figuratively feeling the weight or pressure of the situation with Harry and Meghan, so it's weighing them down a bit."
Harry and Meghan shocked the world in early January when they made public their decision to "step back" from their roles as senior members of Britain's royal family and become "financially independent." The couple noted in their statement that they will "balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America" during the transitioning period.
