Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed Prince Louis, the couple’s latest edition to the Cambridge family in April 2018. But will the Duchess of Cambridge have a fourth baby in 2019?
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have three children together – Prince George (5), Princess Charlotte (3) and Prince Louis (seven months). And with Kate’s brother-in-law Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle announcing they are expecting their first child together in the spring of 2019, the Cambridges may be feeling broody again. So will the future King and Queen of England have a fourth baby in 2019?
Will the Duchess of Cambridge have a fourth baby in 2019?
Bookies Coral have released odds over a sudden announcement from Kate and Prince William as the numbers show a likely chance of Kate being pregnant.
The odds puts the Duchess of Cambridge at 3/1 to have a baby in 2019 and 10/1 to announce the pregnancy by the end of 2018.
Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “Our odds show that there’s every chance that Kate and Wills might add to their growing family, and a fourth baby is certainly a possibility.
“We’ve taken some bets over the last two weeks or so on it happening and there’s a real buzz around the Royal family at the moment with Meghan expecting.”
However, during the Duchess’ previous pregnancies, she suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum – severe vomiting in pregnancy.
Kate experienced severe nausea, vomiting and dehydration, something which may put her off having a fourth child.
One source told People magazine Kate is definitely done due to the extreme morning sickness she went through during her three previous pregnancies.
The source said: “I can’t imagine Kate will want any more given the ordeal that she goes through every pregnancy.
“I should think that three children is enough.”
But the royal power couple may want to follow in Queen Elizabeth II’s footstep by having four children.
A royal source told Express.co.uk Kate always wanted “at least three”.
The source said: ”As one of three, Kate wanted at least three.
“William was more reluctant, not just because he was one of two, but because George was quite a difficult baby.
“Then they had Charlotte and she was a lot easier.
“Now the idea of a newborn doesn’t seem half as challenging.”
