During a recent royal tour of Poland in July, Kate sparked pregnancy speculation when she was handed a toy for a newborn, designed to soothe babies.

While she said thank you for the gift, she turned to her husband and said: “We’ll just have to have more babies.”

It was always believed Kate and William would have three children, as Kate is one of three herself.
