Kate Middleton pregnancy rumours have been swirling in recent months. Is the Duchess of Cambridge pregnant? Could Prince William and Kate be expecting baby number four? Since Meghan Markle, 37, announced her pregnancy there have been rumours that Kate is similarly expecting.
How likely is it that Kate Middleton is pregnant, looking at the body language?
An expert has told Express.co.uk she does not believe the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting.
The body language expert makes the point that Kate tends to vanish from the public eye when she is pregnant due to suffering badly with morning sickness.
However, Kate was seen out just last week in Dundee.
Judi said: “Kate’s biggest pregnancy clues have always come when she absents herself from public outings owing to her bouts of sickness, so why the sudden speculation, especially as Louis was only born in April of last year?”
While there are some body language moves that could hint at a pregnancy, it is by no means safe to assume, the body language expert said.
She explained: “There have been some subtle changes in Kate’s body language and these changes might have been enough to spark or even fuel the speculation that a fourth child is on its way.
“Firstly there was the rather more tactile body language PDAs between Kate and William that implied some re-booted romance.
“Then there is her very glowing smile. Kate’s smiles have always been completely on-point and perfect but recently there has been some extra signals of warmth and even excitement about them.”
However, these changes may be down to the Duchess revelling in having her third baby Prince Louis, born in April.
Judi said: “Having seen her with baby Louis at the christening and posing for the Christmas photoshoot I’d suggest much of this stems from her very besotted-looking behaviour with him, plus a new-found confidence as she moves to a more central and matriarchal role within the royal family.
“But it could be easy to speculate that – with a new royal baby on the way for Harry and Meghan – Kate might just have found herself feeling broody once again.”
In fact, Judi claims that Kate sitting with her bag by her side hints that she is not pregnant.
“Kate’s belt emphasises her slimness. Her legs are crossed demurely here and the bag is clasped to one side.
“Kate will often sit clasping her bag on her lap so if anything this looks like a hint that she’s not pregnant here.”
Kate can been spotted holding her clutch bag over her midsection, but Judi warns not to mistake this for a protective gesture.
“With her larger that usual clutch bag clasped in both hands and brought up to cover her lower stomach, plus her very radiant-looking smile it could be so easy to speculate that Kate might possibly be pregnant again.
“Again, though, we need to remember that this clutch-bag clutch pose is a very normal signature look for Kate.”
Judi recently analysed the way that Kate Middleton and Prince William hold hands compared to Meghan and Prince Harry.
How did Kate Middleton become a royal?
Kate Middleton, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was born on 9 January 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, England.
She was born to Michael and Carole Middleton, a former flight dispatcher and air hostess. The couple founded a party supplies company, Party Pieces, in 1987 – now estimated to be worth £30 million.
Kate has a younger sister Pippa Matthews, 34, and a younger brother James Middleton, 31.
Kate and her family moved to Amman, Jordan, in 1984, where the future Duchess was educated at an English-speaking nursery school.
After moving back to Berkshire the family sent Kate to private school, St Andrews School. She went on to briefly study at Downe House before moving onto Marlborough College where she boarded.
For university the young Kate attended the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Here she was awarded an undergraduate MA (2:1 Hons) in history of art.
Relationship with Prince William
Kate met Prince William when they were both studying at St Andrews, and both living in St Salvator’s Hall. Famously, William reportedly took a fancy to Kate after she wore a see-through dress during a fashion show.
In 2003 the couple began dating and lived together during their second year of university.
The couple split in April 2007, however, in October they were back together.
Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother Princess Diana’s engagement ring in October 2010. The couple were holidaying in Kenya at the time.
On 29 April 2011 they married at Westminster Abbey with a whopping 26 million watching the event live.
Kate wore an Alexander McQueen dress worth a reported £250,000 on the big day.
Kate assumed the title “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge” and also become the Duchess of Cambridge on the day.
