The Prince and Princess of Wales are proud parents to Prince George, ten, Princess Charlotte, eight, and five-year-old Prince Louis, but that hasn't stopped mum Kate from talking about baby number four in recent years!

Back in February 2022, the Princess, 41, admitted she felt "broody" as she chatted with parents and their babies at Copenhagen's Children's Museum and joked that husband William, worries about her working with under-one-year-olds because she returns home wanting "another one".

And in May 2022, as Kate cooed over a cute baby crawling in front of her during a visit to a school in Glasgow, William quipped: "Can you get my wife out of here before she gets broody?" 

Kate gets to interact with lots of babies and children in her day-to-day royal engagements, as seen in the video below, particularly as one of her biggest focuses is the early years.

The Princess launched her Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood in June 2021 and in January earlier this year, she unveiled a new awareness campaign, Shaping Us, which emphasises the importance of the first five years of a child's life and its impact on later life.

Despite the royal mum's confessions, William has appeared to rule out baby number four. When the the couple visited Lancashire last year, the Prince made a cheeky joke as wife Kate found herself holding a three-and-a-half-month-old baby girl.

During a visit to Church on the Street in Burnley, Kate cooed at Anastasia Barrie while standing beside her parents Trudi, a volunteer, and Alastair Barrie, who is on the centre's committee.

William, looking at his wife gazing at the baby, said: "Don't give her any ideas," to laughter. "You can't take her with you," he told Kate, smiling.

And back in February 2019 during a tour of Northern Ireland, Kate also confessed to feeling broody as she met a five-month-old baby called James during a walkabout in Ballymena.

"He's gorgeous. It makes me feel broody," Kate told James Barr's dad Alan, who was quick to ask her about a possible baby number four. The Princess laughed and said: "I think William might be slightly worried."

William and Kate first became parents in July 2013, when they welcomed Prince George at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington. The couple's daughter, Princess Charlotte, arrived at the same hospital two years later, followed by their second son, Prince Louis, in April 2018.
