During a visit to Cambridge on Thursday, Kate Middleton asked to hold a baby, and Prince William had the best reaction.
While greeting fans at Newmarket Racecourse, the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, paused to gush over a baby girl as her husband, also 40, looked on.
After telling the baby’s mother how much she “love[s] babies,” Prince William tapped his wife’s arm, signaling that it was time to go.
“LOL I love William’s reaction. Desperate to get away before Catherine gets any ideas about baby No. 4,” one Twitter user wrote of the interaction.
Another added, “Catherine loves babies. It’s making William a little nervous. He’s nervous with three. Another one might tip him over the edge.”
When Prince George, now 8, was born in July 2013, the royals became parents. Princess Charlotte, now 7, and Prince Louis, now 4, were born in May 2015 and April 2018, respectively.
Kate Middleton has been vocal about her baby fever since the birth of their youngest child. During a February visit to the University of Copenhagen, she revealed how “very broody” she is around infants.
“William always worries about me meeting under-1-year-olds. I come home saying, ‘Let’s have another one,’” Kate Middleton joked at the time.
The Duke of Cambridge had previously warned a couple in Lancashire, England, not to give Middleton “any ideas” as they handed her their baby for a photo opp. William then jokingly warned his partner, “Don’t take her with you.”
The couple is preoccupied with George, Charlotte, and Louis. The mini royals, particularly Louis, made headlines earlier this month during Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The toddler amused onlookers by screaming during the Trooping the Colour flyover and taunting his mother during the pageant.
During the events, Charlotte was seen correcting both of her brothers. She interrupted Louis’ waving and later told George to stand up straight.
