Prince William's baby joke about his wife Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, might put the kibosh on any suggestions that the family of five is going to grow any larger.
- Prince William's baby joke was made during the royal couple's second official outing of 2022.
- The Duchess was seen looking ecstatic with a newborn baby, which could make anyone broody.
- In other royal news, The Queen believed Kate Middleton ‘needed a job’ before marrying Prince William.
It's pretty hard not to fawn over a cute baby and the Duchess of Cambridge is no different to anybody else in that respect.
Despite reports that, "having four children was always part of Kate’s plan," Prince William's reaction to his wife cooing over a baby indicates that plan might have changed.
The interaction was captured during the royal couple's visit to Clitheroe Community Hospital in Lancashire to highlight the importance of mental wellbeing and support during the pandemic.
Alongside taking the opportunity to thank NHS staff for their hard work during the pandemic, they also posed for photos with a number of patients and colleagues present.
Among those lucky few were new parents Trudi and Alastair Barrie and their adorable baby daughter Anastasia. Kate held the baby girl as they posed for a photo and onlookers couldn't help but coo over the adorable situation.
However, Prince William wasn't that impressed and quipped, "Don't give my wife any more ideas!"
Much to the amusement of onlookers, he added, "Don't take her with you," as she handed Anastasia back to her parents.
This isn't the first time the Duchess has taken a shine to a baby. Previously, Kate Middleton's heart was won by adorable baby on a Scottish tour. Although Prince William had a similar reaction to that adorable moment, there is one sign that there's still a chance a baby might be on the way.
The day before their trip to Clitheroe, Kate Middleton sported £2 earrings and brand new hair for her first day at work since turning 40. Many fans have noticed in the past that the Duchess often has a bit of a spruce during pregnancy. So much so that people genuinely wonder is Kate Middleton’s hair an indicator that she’s pregnant again?
One baby the Prince showed a lot of interest in was a super cute therapy puppy, Alfie. The puppy, funded through the hospital charity ELHT&Me using a grant from NHS Charities Together, will be used to support the well-being of staff and patients at the hospital.
