The Cambridges are the most talked-about family in the world, making headlines on the regular, particularly over the past year with the Duke and Duchess' roles elevated.

The Cambridge children make non stop news, from Princess Charlotte's signature sass and Prince George knowing he's different from his siblings to Prince Louis' love of cuddling.

Rumours around another baby have been circulating the Duchess of Cambridge for years, with followers and fans constantly on baby watch, and this past week was no exception.

During a royal outing at Clitheroe Community Hospital, Prince William and Kate Middleton stopped to talk to members of the public, and Kate even got to meet and cradle a new-born baby.

Quick to make his opinions clear, Prince William joked to the parents "Don't give my wife any more ideas", before instructing Kate: "Don't take her with you".

"It makes me very broody," Kate laughed after meeting two eight month old babies. "William always worries about me meeting under one-year-olds. I come home saying, ‘let’s have another one’.”

These aren't the first comments around a fourth Cambridge baby, with Kate Middleton addressing the reports a few years back during an official visit to Bradford. When asked if she would like to add to the Cambridge family, the Duchess replied: "I don't think William wants any more."

"I don't think Kate and William have ever ruled out the possibility of baby number four", Royal expert Duncan Larcombe told OK! magazine last year. "Their children really bring out the best in them and Kate is a natural mother and very doting with children."

He continued: "With Kate, despite her focus on her royal duty, her family still comes first. I wouldn't be surprised if they decided on another baby."

Will there be a fourth baby Cambridge? Only time will tell.
