William and Kate Are Reportedly Trying for Baby #4 and Queen Elizabeth Has Been Informed

The Queen is "overjoyed" but "slightly concerned."

Looks like another royal baby might soon be on the way for Kate Middleton and Prince William! A source told Us Weekly that the couple are officially trying to have another kid, and are fully on the same page.

“Having four children was always part of Kate’s plan,” the source said. “She put the idea on hold when [the coronavirus pandemic] hit, but now there is light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine and [Prince George and Princess Charlotte] scheduled to return to school in April. She feels ready to start trying again.”

Apparently, William wasn't initially on board with wanting another child, but ended up changing his mind and getting super excited about the prospect.

“It took a while for Kate to convince William, though,” the source continued. “He said that three children is more than enough. The thought of having four made him feel overwhelmed. … But Kate’s desires to have another child have inspired him, and at the end of the day, he loves and appreciates the secure family setting he never had growing up. Why not make it bigger? After taking some time to think about it, he’s on the same page and is excited about the future.”

Queen Elizabeth knows about the couple's plan and is "overjoyed" but she is also "slightly concerned that the Cambridges are biting off more than they can chew, especially as Kate isn’t planning to employ another nanny (as she wants to be hands-on), but as long as they’re happy, she’s happy.”
