Kate Middleton and Prince William are reported to be expecting their fourth baby after some royal watcher claimed to have seen the duchess’ growing baby bump during a recent engagement.

“Kate was very protective of her stomach and could be seen subconsciously holding her hand over it,” an unnamed source told Woman’s Day Australia. “She’s very slender but there could’ve been a hint of a little bump,” it went on.

Another insider claimed that Kate and William are very happy and secured with their marriage amid the issues being faced by the royal family, including the dramas with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the untimely passing of Prince Philip. Hence, it would not come as a surprise if the Cambridge couple is adding another member to their adorable brood.

“Both have always wanted a big family, and after all the troubles of the past couple of years, a new baby could be just the tonic for the royal family,” an unidentified tipster told the entertainment outlet.

“Prince Charles in particular is very fond of his grandchildren and would be delighted with another little one to spoil,” it went on. “He has his fingers crossed they do have another – it feels like it could turn the family fortunes around.”

For starters, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, currently, share three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Meanwhile, Closer Magazine reported that Kate is trying to settle the rift between Prince William and Prince Harry. The duchess’ uncle told the publication that she is trying to mediate and help repair the strained relationship of Harry and Meghan Markle with the other members of the royal family.

“The harsh truth — in my opinion — is that if Harry doesn’t get a grip and stop this self-indulgent episode, there will soon be no common ground or relationship to rebuild,” Gary Goldsmith, who is the brother of Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton, said.

“But if anyone can bring peace to the royals, Kate can,” he added. “Kate is a brilliant arbiter and peacemaker. Every bone in her body is about making friends and doing the best she can … She’s trying to mediate,” he further said.

Both Kate Middleton and Prince William have yet to comment on these unverified reports. So, avid followers of the royal couple should take these speculations with a huge grain of salt until everything is proven true and correct.
