Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, 36, has royal fans hoping she will fall pregnant with her fourth baby with Prince William, 36, within the next year.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby is due to be born in the spring of 2019.
But the new arrival for Meghan and Harry could be overshadowed if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announce they are pregnant with their fourth child.
Odds on Kate and William announcing their fourth pregnancy before the end of 2019 have been slashed to just 7/2.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Baby mania is in full swing in the Royal Family right now so it’s no surprise to see odds on a fourth Will and Kate baby so short.”
Kate gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis, in April 2018.
She welcomed Prince George and Princess Charlotte in 2013 and 2015, respectively.
Meanwhile, Meghan and Harry are preparing for their first baby together.
The Duchess of Sussex recently returned from the Royal Tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand where she proudly displayed her blossoming baby bump throughout the two-week tour.
While the Duchess of Cambridge continued to work until the weeks leading up to her due dates, Meghan may reduce her public appearances as her due date draws closer.
Kensington Palace has yet to release a future itinerary for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
There is a chance Meghan will take a step back from the limelight as she prepares for the arrival of the couple’s baby.
While on tour in Australia, Meghan’s team whittled down her commitments to allow the Duchess more time to rest.
A royal expert who was in Australia with the couple tweeted: “One source tells me it isn’t that the duchess is feeling poorly, but they’re trying to ‘pace’ her given how many engagements are coming up.”
Meghan told one royal fan who turned out to see them on tour that pregnant felt like “jet lag” and she was up at 4.30am doing yoga as she couldn’t sleep.
At one of the engagements Harry attended without his wife, he told fans Meghan was “resting back at home”.
“Being pregnant takes its toll,” he said.
However, Meghan may decide to take a leaf out of her sister-in-law’s book.
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, was struck down by hyperemesis gravidarum – a severe form of morning sickness – in all three of her pregnancies, but once she was through the early stages she was busier than ever.
