If Kate Middleton Is Pregnant With Royal Baby Number 4, She Has To Follow This Archaic Tradition Involving Queen Elizabeth

Kate Middleton Sister Pippa Baby Number Four Tradition Queen Elizabeth

The Royal Family is still going through some turbulent times due to the ongoing health crisis, and it is not entirely clear when things would improve on that horizon.

However, in the meantime, fans eager for a royal baby are getting various exciting stories that have painted many members of the family in a more human light, revealing heartwarming details about their private lives and their relations to one another.

It came to light that Pippa Middleton apparently looked up to her sister, Kate Middleton, quite a lot, and she even took some inspiration from her during her own pregnancy.

It seems like Pippa had decided to follow the traditional steps of the family and had avoided revealing the gender of her baby during her pregnancy.

Kate used the same approach during her three pregnancies, and it was claimed that the main intent of the tradition was to preserve the special moment for Queen Elizabeth II.

Some have questioned the tradition, claiming that it is archaic and has no place in modern society, but others have disagreed strongly.

There is actually a lot of support for this kind of attitude, especially with the growing popularity of “gender reveal parties” across the world in recent years and some of the controversies that have arisen around them because they sometimes lead to horrific incidents like the wildfires in California.

It will be interesting to see if future members of the Royal Family continue the tradition, or if someone would break it eventually.

Things were close to a breaking point a few years ago when Prince William almost broke the tradition, but in the end, that did not happen.

Meanwhile, there are reports claiming that the Duchess of Cambridge might be pregnant with royal baby number 4.

In a past interview, Kate explained how she finally found a solution for her extreme morning sickness: “It was through hyperemesis that I really realized the power of the mind over the body because I really had to try everything and everything to try and help me through it. I’m not going to say that William was standing there sort of, chanting sweet nothings at me. He definitely wasn’t!”

She went to reveal on a podcast: “I didn’t even ask him about it, but it was just something I wanted to do for myself. I saw the power of it really, the meditation and the deep breathing and things like that – that they teach you in hypnobirthing – when I was really sick and actually, I realized that this was something I could take control of, I suppose, during labor.”

She concluded by: “It was hugely powerful, and because it had been so bad during pregnancy, I actually really quite liked labor.”

Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, and Meghan Markle are also said to be trying to have royal babies.
