Prince William Makes a Crazy Joke About Kate Middleton’s Cost
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children are the light of their lives, but being a working member of the royal family and a devoted parent can be a challenge. The Cambridges share Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, who are respectively third, fourth and fifth in line to the throne.
But despite their privileged upbringing, William and Kate want the children to have as normal a childhood as possible, per People† In addition, both parents have opened up about the battle of raising children in the spotlight.
In an interview on the “Happy Mommy, Happy Baby” podcast (via Today), Kate explained how hard it was to accept that “it’s not quite my responsibility to do everything”, acknowledging that she experiences maternal guilt “all the time.” The Duchess even joked, “I think anyone who doesn’t, as a mother, is actually lying.”
William, meanwhile, admitted on ‘Talk Vietnam’, per e! NewsBecoming a father was a huge adjustment. “There are beautiful highs and there are beautiful lows,” he explained. “I am very lucky to have the support I have from Catherine.”
The busy parents have their hands full, but the Cambridges have been haunted for years by rumors that they are trying to have a fourth child. William usually makes jokes when he responds to the rumor, which is exactly what happened during a recent royal visit.
Prince William joked that his wife might be getting ideas for having another baby
Kate Middleton has made it clear her desire to have another child, and typically, when she and her husband Prince William handle babies, the Duchess is guaranteed to cuddle with them before the visit ends.
Per People, on a recent stop at St. John’s Primary School, in Scotland – the first stop on their royal visit there – students introduced the famous couple to their “little teacher”, Saul. The baby teaches the students about empathy, but William was afraid he would give Kate ideas.
“Can you get my wife out of here before she goes broody?” the duke joked. But it was too late as photos from the event show Kate cuddling the 10-month-old toddler on her lap as they flip through a book together.
The Roots of Empathy classroom program clearly had an impact on the Duchess, who asked the assembled schoolchildren, “Do you think many schools should have a project like this?” before agreeing to their confirmation, noting, “So do we.”
Early childhood development is a cornerstone of her work, but of course requires a lot of interaction with young children and babies, which can be problematic at times. if Marie Claire UK notes that during a royal tour in 2017, the Cambridges were urged by a local family planning organization to consider how having a large family negatively impacts the environment. Children sternly advised the couple, “Large families are not sustainable.”
Could the Cambridges ever have a fourth child?
While they are very environmentally conscious, the reason why the Cambridges are in no rush to have a fourth child is probably more personal. Recently, Kate Middleton revealed why Prince William is concerned about her around children, admitting that the Duchess’s apparent broodiness often gives him pause.
if Elle UK noted in 2019, when an avid fan asked if “baby number four” was on the way, she replied, “I think William would be a little concerned.”
Kate’s broodiness has become a running joke. While visiting a hospital in Lancashire, she was spotted hugging a little girl, while William quipped, “Don’t give my wife any more ideas,” per People†
Likewise, on a solo trip to Copenhagen’s Children’s Museum, Kate admitted that her husband “is always concerned about my encounter among annuals”. She added: “I come home and say, ‘Let’s have another one,'” said the… Daily mail†
A source told We Weekly“Having four children has always been part of Kate’s plan,” but the COVID-19 pandemic overturned this.
The royal couple reportedly planned to try another baby once schools reopened, but there seems to have been no movement on that front since. Although his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, is fully supportive of the idea, William is not convinced, as he believes that “three children is more than enough.”
Considering how devoted the Duke is to his family, we could end up seeing a Cambridge baby after all.
