“It took a while for Kate to convince William, though,” the insider said
It has barely been a few days since Princess Eugenie gave birth to a boy and the internet can't get enough of him. What fans of the royal family didn't see coming was that they might get one more royal baby to celebrate, Prince William and Duchess Kate are apparently planning to have another child, according to the Us Magazine.
In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly, a source claimed that the royal couple is “trying” to conceive their fourth child. “Having four children was always part of Kate’s plan,” she put the idea on hold when [the coronavirus pandemic] hit, but now there is light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine and [Prince George and Princess Charlotte] scheduled to return to school in April. She feels ready to start trying again," the source said.
Apparently, the Duchess of Cambridge has been feeling “broody” since her sister Pippa Middleton’s pregnancy reveal in December 2020. It was reported that she feels so because she knows that her “clock is ticking". It is believed that she has been eating a “nutrient-rich” diet to prepare her body. “It took a while for Kate to convince William, though,” the insider said during the interview. “He said that three children is more than enough. The thought of having four made him feel overwhelmed. … But Kate’s desires to have another child have inspired him, and at the end of the day, he loves and appreciates the secure family setting he never had growing up. Why not make it bigger? After taking some time to think about it, he’s on the same page and is excited about the future," the source further added.
The couple has apparently even hinted about their plans to Queen Elizabeth II, the source said, which has left the matriarch “overjoyed.” “She adores her great-grandchildren. She’s slightly concerned that the Cambridges are biting off more than they can chew, especially as Kate isn’t planning to employ another nanny (as she wants to be hands-on), but as long as they’re happy, she’s happy," the source explained. Kate is apparently hoping for another daughter since she and Pippa are “extremely close” sisters. “She wants Charlotte to have the same enjoyable experience — to grow up with a little a sister to confide in and look out for," the insider said. Pippa is currently expecting her second child with her husband, James Matthews. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are thrilled for Pippa and James,” a source had claimed when the pregnancy was announced, reported the Us Magazine.
