2018 was a big year in terms of royal babies, with two little Mountbatten-Windsors joining the fold.
But 2019 could be giving it a run for its money, with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry expecting their first baby together in the Spring, and now rumours that a new baby Cambridge could be on the way soon.
While the Duchess of Cambridge was greeting the crowds at a royal engagement in Northern Ireland, she reportedly greeted a male fan and his baby, gushing over the newborn and telling the father, ‘He’s so diddy. It makes me very broody!’
The father reportedly then asked her whether she would like a fourth baby, to which Kate replied: ‘I think William may be slightly worried!’
Talking about the likelihood of a fourth Cambridge baby, royal correspondents Emily Andrews and Omid Scobie discussed the comments on podcast ‘On Heir’.
And according to Scobie, there could be more to the comments than meets the eye, with Kate reportedly making a similar joke before announcing her third pregnancy.
‘I remember having a conversation with the Duchess a few months after Charlotte was born,’ the royal correspondent recalled. ’She had just put Charlotte to sleep and said how lovely it was to have a baby around again.’
And when Omid reportedly asked her whether it made her want to have a third child, the Duchess replied: ‘Oh I would love to, but William would kill me if he heard me say that!’
‘Then of course, lo and behold, we had Prince Louis some time later,’ he reminded listeners.
Will there be a fourth baby Cambridge coming soon? Only time will tell.
