None of Kate's three pregnancies were easy, she suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, which causes extreme sickness throughout the pregnancy.
Prince William and Kate Middleton got married in April 2011, at Westminster Abbey, and since then, they've welcomed three beautiful and healthy babies — George, 8, Charlotte, 6, and Louis, 3, in 2013, 2015, and 2018, respectively—into their lives. However, it seems like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are content with their brood because they reportedly have no plans for a fourth child.
Royal expert Nick Bullen, who gave Us Weekly an exclusive update on Prince William and Duchess Kate’s future family plans, confirmed that they do not plan on having more children.
“I think they feel that they’ve got a pretty perfect family," he said. I think Kate was always keen to follow with her parents and have that sort of family of five,” the True Royalty TV cocreator said on September 14, 2021 “She’s [now] matched it. And I think my view is they’ll probably stop here.”
Carole Middleton and Michael Middleton are parents to Kate, her sister, Pippa Middleton, and her brother, James Middleton. Also, none of Kate's three pregnancies were easy for her, given how she suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, which causes extreme sickness throughout the pregnancy.
In fact, labor seemed like a better option to her than pregnancy, because she knew her sickness was going to end, per Entertainment Daily. “I actually really quite liked labor… because actually, it was an event that I knew there was going to be an ending too!”
Earlier, she had revealed that while she would like one more kid, she knew her husband didn't want anymore, reports US Weekly. “I think William would be a little worried.”
However, the three children “love playing together and being creative” at home, revealed another source to Us Weekly. “Painting, baking, and building things are all activities they enjoy, and now that Louis’ a bit older, he gets involved too,” the insider explained in October 2019. “[It’s] usually over silly things like toys or what TV shows they want to watch. But most of the time they get on.”
Louis is a “real mommy’s boy,” while his older sister is “extremely confident and loves attention.” As for George, the source added, “He is more reserved, although he is starting to come out of his shell. George is always looking out for his younger brother and sister and is already showing traits of making an excellent leader.”
Meanwhile, Bullen predicts that Will and Kate will be busy with their royal duties for a while. “They are really focused, over the next 12 months, on their work. Both of them turn 40 next year. They are really keen to be promoting their charities, their initiatives, and foundation.”
