Prince William Makes Baby Joke Directed At Kate Middleton, As She Cooed Over A Little Girl

Kate Middleton may have previously hinted that Prince William doesn't want anymore kids, but that hasn't stopped the duchess from seeming broody.

During her and the duke's visit to Clitheroe Community Hospital in Lancashire on Thursday, to understand the specific challenges faced by health staff during Covid-19, they chatted to a number of families. At one moment, Middleton posed sweetly with the baby girl of a couple named Trudi and Alastair Barrie.

Middleton, mum to Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, whom she shares with the duke, was seen looking adoringly at the couples' daughter, Anastasia, as she posed for a photograph with her, causing onlookers to ooh and aah in admiration.

And one person who noticed the exchange was Prince William himself.

After seeing Middleton with the baby, he quipped: 'Don't give my wife any more ideas,' per People.

As Middleton handed the baby back to the couple, he added: 'Don't take her with you.'

Back in 2019, during the royal pair's Northern Ireland tour, Middleton held a fan's five-month-old baby named James Barr.

She said to the baby's dad, Alan Barr: 'He’s gorgeous. It makes me feel broody,' The Sun reported.

After James' father asked: 'Baby number four?' Middleton responded: 'I think William would be a little worried.'

What's more, in January 2020, Middleton, when addressing the subject of having more children, told a royal fan: 'I don’t think William wants any more.'

This happened during a tour of Bradford, when the fan, Josh Macpalce, proudly told Middleton that he had sent her congratulatory cards after each of her children were born.

As for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's current family life, things are pretty wild, if the former's account of their morning activities is anything to go by.

Last month, Prince William spoke about what family life is like with his and Middleton's children during an episode of Apple Fitness+'s audio podcast series Time to Walk.

He said that during breakfast time Princess Charlotte goes 'completely crazy' on the dance floor, and that there's a dispute amongst the young royal and her brother Prince George, as to what song gets played in the morning.

Of his children's dancing antics, he added: 'There's a lot of hip movements going along. There's a lot of dressing up.'

As well as the royal couple's light-hearted revelations, Middleton has also opened up candidly about motherhood in the past.

Making an appearance on Giovanna Fletcher's Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast, the Duchess of Cambridge addressed mum guilt.

Discussing whether she's dealt with it, she said: 'Yes absolutely, and anyone who doesn't as a mother is actually lying. Yes, all the time.'

The duchess, who celebrated her 40th birthday earlier in the month, continued: 'There's such a pull, but I am such a hands-on mum, and whatever you're doing you want to make sure you're doing the uttermost best job you can for your children.'

Discussing motherhood further, Middleton, who referred to it as 'a constant challenge' and has previously not shied away from opening up about feelings of isolation and loneliness, also said during the podcast, 'you're always sort of questioning your own decisions, and your own judgments, and things like that, and I think that starts from the moment you have a baby'.
