When Prince William and Kate Middleton married in 2011, fans were on the edge of the seats waiting for their first child. As the future King of England, their children would be next in line for the throne- making their children the most important children in the world.
Just two years after they married, they welcomed their first son, Prince George. Prince George was an internationally known baby just minutes after he was born.
In the early Fall of 2014, Will and Kate announced that they were expecting another child! A sibling for the future king was the talk of the world- literally! Immediately, Royal fans began hoping for a little brother so Prince George would have a relationship like his father and uncle, Prince Harry have. But that wasn’t the case.
On May 2nd, 2015, the Duchess welcomed a perfect little girl, Princess Charlotte! Princess Charlotte and Prince George were sensational; as if the Royal Family couldn’t get anymore fairytale-esque, a perfect little brother and sister pair entered the scene almost as if they were written in. Royal fans adored the sibling pair and assumed that the Duke and Duchess would settle as a family of four.
But in the fall of 2017, Kensington Palace announced that Will and Kate were pregnant again! This time, Will and Kate were going to end up with either two boys or two girls- either way, one child would likely be left out.
On April 23rd, 2018, Kate delivered a perfectly healthy baby boy. Princess Charlotte was officially the middle child of two brothers. And while Charlotte has proven herself to be very captivating, William and Kate and noticed that she’s been privately wanting a little sister.
Less than three months after delivery Louis, Will and Kate are believed to already be planning baby number four! Sources tell Life & Style that the couple desperately want another little girl for Princess Charlotte. “They’d love to have two boys and two girls… It’s important to Kate for her own children to have a similar bond with their siblings, and she knows it’s more likely to happen if they’re close in age.”
Kate Middleton and her sister, Pippa are very close, and many believe that she wants that same opportunity for her daughter. Ideally, Will and Kate would have one more daughter, so that there are an even number, however the same source also shares that Prince William would be okay with five children.
While Princess Charlotte is an awesome big sister to her little brother, there’s no doubt the she would be thrilled to learn that she’s going to have a little sister!
