It has recently been confirmed that Kate Middleton made a big move from Kensington Palace to Anmer Hall on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk with her husband, Prince William.
While many assumed that Prince William and his wife were merely looking for more privacy and space for their three children to thrive, there might be another huge reason for the relocation — Kate Middleton is said to be seriously thinking about having royal baby number 4.
According to royal insiders, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, who had always dreamed of having four children, used her time during the COVID-19 lockdown to work out a manageable plan to get pregnant in the spring.
Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, have decided that as soon as their children, 7-year-old Prince George, 5-year-old Princess Charlotte, and 2-year-old Prince Louis — return to school in the upcoming months, they will activate their royal pregnancy mission.
Duchess Kate is said to be heartbroken to postpone the pregnancy plan because of the pandemic, but she is eager to have a baby girl because she wants Princess Charlotte to have a younger sister.
A source stated: “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 royal insider claimed Kate Middleton had to convince Prince William that when it comes to children — the more, the merrier.
The person familiar with the situation told Us Weekly: “It took a while for Kate to convince William…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?”
The source continued: “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.”
It was previously reported that Prince Charles was hurt that Kate had decided to move to Norfolk, which is several miles from his Highgrove home.
Royal expert Tom Quinn said in the documentary When the Middletons Met the Monarchy: “He was shocked and a little saddened that William and Kate decided that their country house should be in Norfolk, a very long way from Highgrove in Gloucestershire.”
Prince Charles will certainly forgive Kate and be over the moon to have another grandchild.
