Earlier this month, Kensington Palace announced that the Duchess of Cambridge was pregnant. Although Kate Middleton’s pregnancy news wasn’t a shock considering the previous rumors about it. Now it has been revealed just why Prince William and Kate Middleton made a decision to have a third baby.
Having in mind that Kate has two siblings, Pippa and James, we can conclude that maybe she would like her children to have same experience like she had. However, when it comes to Prince William the reason for having a third baby is reportedly for his own reasons.
Prince William, allegedly, son wants his children to have a strong emotional support system like he had with Prince Harry after the death of their mother, Princess Diana.
He was growing up under a lot of pressure, but fortunately, he had his brother Harry bt his side. Prince Harry is the only one who knows what his life was like.
“We are uniquely bonded because of what we’ve been through.” The reason why he wanted a third baby might be because wants the same support for Prince George Princess Charlotte and the third baby like he had one with Prince Harry.
Anyway, the reason could also go beyond emotional support and be rooted more in practicality. Queen Elizabeth II has four children, Charles, Anne, Andrew, and Edward. This means that there were many members to share the royal duties. And when her children got married her children their spouses were added to the mix. Therefore, there are eight people share the workload. (the queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Princess Diana, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, Sarah Duchess of York, and Prince Edward)
But, still, the responsible ones for the high-profile duties are the queen, Charles, Camilla Parker-Bowles, William, Kate, and Harry, considering that Charles’s siblings have the minor role and Prince Philip is retired. So, it means that William and Kate having a third child, and they get married, the number will become 10 again.
Now, what happens with Harry, his future wife, and the children that they will have? As is always the case with the “spare to the heir,” they are the second most important person in the future of the monarchy. When the elder sibling forms his family, the younger one gets bumped down the line of succession. And with it comes the significance of their royal role. Until George, Charlotte, and baby number three enter royal life full-time, we hope we can see plenty of Harry over the coming decades.
