Kate Middleton and Prince William ‘want at least three kids’

HRH Duchess of Cambridge

Princess Charlotte and Prince George might get a sibling in the near future, as according to a source cited by Vanity Fair, their royal parents “want at least three kids and for them to be close in age.”

Last year, the Duke, 33, who became a father for the first time in July 2013, was asked in an interview with Sky News whether he was considering having a third child.

“We’ve only just had the second one. You never know what is going to happen in the future,” William replied.

Shortly after the Duchess, née Kate Middleton, 34, gave birth to Princess Charlotte in May 2015, they headed to their Georgian country house Anmer Hall in Norfolk for a quiet idyllic life.

“They are rarely bothered,” a local told Vanity Fair. “We are used to having royals in this part of the world. We often see them out with George and Charlotte, but no one takes pictures or tries to talk to them. That’s why they love it here. They love the normality of life in Norfolk, whether it’s popping to the butcher or into a local toyshop to get another helicopter for George.”

According to a friend cited by People magazine, Kate and William plan to expand their family.

“They’ve been looking forward to having a family,” their friend told the publication last year. “They enjoy family life and seeing it among their friends’ families – that’s why I think they will have a third.”
