All throughout her pregnancy, Kate Middleton has been glowing. But apparently Prince William is still a little shaky about becoming a father of three. The Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit to the Snow Leopard Ward at Evelina London Children’s Hospital on February 27th, where she joked to the father of a child receiving care there that Prince William is a little less than prepared for their third child’s arrival this spring.
“I was saying, ‘Congratulations, best of luck with the third one,'” Jamie Parsons, the 10-month-old patient’s father, explained to People. “She said, ‘William’s in denial.'”
The comment, of course, was made all in good fun, and it isn’t the first time that either of the parents have joked about welcoming their third child.
Prince William attended a charity event earlier this month, where he spoke a little about fatherhood and teased that he’s going to be “permanently tired” by the time the royal family increases by one.
Middleton visited the children’s hospital as part of her trip to St. Thomas’ Hospital — which is home to the children’s ward — and during her trip, she launched a campaign to promote nursing worldwide. According to People, the mom-of-three-to-be participated in a roundtable discussion and gave a speech to promote the campaign’s launch.
“This campaign means a lot to me personally,” Middleton said in her speech. “My great-grandmother and grandmother were both volunteer nurses. They would have learned first-hand from working with the Voluntary Aid Detachment and the Red Cross about the care and compassion that sometimes only nurses can provide.”
Kensington Palace confirmed back in September that the Duke and Duchess are expecting another little bundle of joy, due in April, and we can’t wait.
