William’s ‘fears’ and the Queen’s ‘concerns’

The Duchess of Cambridge’s constant desire to have children has worried her husband, Prince William, and worried her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Ever since the Duchess of Cambridge married Prince William, her intention has always been to raise a large family. Just two years after giving birth to her first child, Prince George, Kate Middleton was pregnant again.

Unlike her husband, who thought two children would be enough, Kate wanted at least three children as she is the eldest of three children herself.

The Duchess of Cambridge originally wanted to have at least three children before the age of 35, as female fertility begins to decline rapidly from that age.

However, even after becoming a mother to three children, Kate has not fulfilled her wish for children and says she wants a fourth child.

According to some sources, a fourth child had always been in the plans of the 1930s and this new desire has her husband, Prince William, particularly concerned.

The Duchess of Cambridge has always been open about having more babies, unlike her husband Prince William.

As a mother of three adorable children, Kate’s desire to have another baby has never really faded. A desire that is amplified in the presence of children under the age of one.

Such was the case when, on her first solo royal voyage, she visited the Copenhagen Infant Mental Health Project, where she met parents and their young children.

Afterwards, Kate revealed that being close to those children made her want to have another baby.

She revealed that Prince William was often worried about seeing her around babies as most of the time she came home with the idea of ​​having babies.

The Duke also joked about Kate’s desire to have more children as the couple visited a hospital in Lancashire, England. There they met another couple, who presented the Duchess with their baby for a photo.

William joked that the couple shouldn’t fuel his wife’s desire for motherhood by giving her the child, and he then teased his wife about not bringing the child home.

Regardless, the Duchess has always been supportive of having more children in the family and has always encouraged her husband to embrace the idea of ​​a fourth child.

For his part, Prince William believes that three children are more than enough.

Her desire for a fourth child grew after her toddlers returned to school as Covid-19 restrictions eased. On the other hand, her sister Pippa Middleton – who is married to James Matthews – also announced that she is expecting her second child.

It took some time, but the Duchess of Cambridge managed to convince her husband, the prince, to accept her wish. He was comfortable loving and appreciating the secure family environment he never had growing up.

Kate has since adopted a nutrient-dense diet to prepare her body for her fourth child. The Duchess is also hoping her fourth child will be a different girl as she and Pippa are very close sisters and the mother of three would love for her daughter Charlotte to grow up with a little sister.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s plan to have a fourth child would have made Queen Elizabeth II very happy as the matriarch adores her great-grandchildren.

However, the Queen fears the couple are negotiating more than they can handle as Kate has no plans to hire a new nanny and plans on raising her children herself.

One thing is certain: as long as the duke and duchess are happy, the queen will support them in whatever decisions they make.


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate, are parents to three adorable children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte and their youngest, Prince Louis.

Due to the royal family’s policy of not disclosing most personal items, children are rarely exposed.

In 2019, however, fans got a rare glimpse into the lives of Kate’s children when a blog post featured a description of what the kids did for fun.

While their parents attended the Irish Guards’ annual St Patrick’s Day parade in Hounslow, the children played in Kensington Gardens.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte pedaled while Louis was pushed in his stroller by their nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.

All three children love the outdoors and have been regularly seen with their mother feeding the ducks in Hyde Park.

Charlotte and George have also been spotted playing football and cycling in the castle gardens. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge can sometimes be busy with royal duties, but the couple also try to spend time with their children.

Kate has often said that she enjoys simple family time and playing outside with her children. The mother of three spelled it out in a 2018 letter in support of Children’s Hospice Week when she said:

“Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life and for me as a mother, it’s the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish.”

During her visit to the University of Leicester, the 30-year-old also revealed that she enjoys hunting spiders with her children.

In 2021, the Duke and Duchess gave royal fans an early Christmas present by posting a family photo to their Instagram page.
