Will Prince William and Kate Have More Kids?

The Cambridges Are Probably Done Having Kids — Here's Why

There's no doubt that Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have an incredibly adorable family. Between future heir Prince George, scene-stealing Princess Charlotte, and sweet baby Prince Louis, the royal couple certainly have their hands full with their young family. With a royal baby on the way for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, some are wondering whether or not William and Kate will have any more children.

As most members of the royal family tend to do when it comes to personal matters, the couple have remained private as to whether or not they plan to grow their family any further. However, it seems pretty unlikely for a few different reasons. From a simple health perspective, it seems like it would probably be a very frustrating experience for the duchess. During all three of her pregnancies, Kate suffered from hyperemesis gravidarium, a severe and debilitating side effect of pregnancy that landed her in the hospital. Since they've already had three children — a fairly typical family size and plenty of heirs for the royal family — it seems unlikely that she would want to put herself through that experience again.

Another reason is that they already have a fairly typical, perhaps even slightly larger-than-average family size for the royals. Although Queen Elizabeth had four children, including William's father Prince Charles, larger families are less and less common for the younger generation. Each of the queen's kids, in fact, had exactly two children. Prince William's cousins also each have kept that tradition going: Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall each have two children as well.

Whether or not the Cambridges have more children, we're sure we've still got many years of adorable family pictures to come!
