Duchess Kate reveals her excitement for Duchess Meghan’s baby

By Meaghan Wray

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are getting closer to welcoming their first baby next spring, and sister-in-law Kate is over the moon about it! While the Duchess of Cambridge was paying a visit to Leicester University on Wednesday (Nov. 28), she opened up about Baby Sussex, clearly giddy over welcoming a new bundle of joy into the royal fold.

One lucky well-wisher who had the chance to chat with the duchess asked if she is excited for the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan’s baby, to which the 36-year-old responded: “Yeah, absolutely. It’s such a special time to have little kiddies. And now a cousin for George, Charlotte and Louis, as well! It’s really, really special.”

And, of course, the crowd was curious about how her three cuties with Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. “They’re doing well, thank you,” Kate shared, adding that they’re quickly getting into the holiday spirit. “They’re getting really excited for Christmas time, because they’ve started all their Christmas songs and the Christmas trees are going up. And Louis’s getting bigger. I can’t believe he’s, like, seven months! He’s getting to be a big boy.” The holiday seasons is going to be that much sweeter with Louis celebrating his first with the family.

While the couple had a wonderful time chatting with the crowds outside the Leicester City stadium, they were there for a rather somber occasion. After the owner of Leicester City, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabh, died in a helicopter accident last month along with four others, Kate and William wanted to stop by the memorial site to pay their respects to the man who put a lot of his heart into local charities. Along with meeting football fans there for the same reason, they also chatted with Vichai’s family members and members of the club’s management team.

The mother of three wore neutral colours to the memorial site – a beautiful grey coat dress by one of her go-to designers, Catherine Walker. Pairing it with black hosiery and what appear to be her favourite black suede Tod’s pumps, Kate wore her hair in her new favoured style – a ponytail secured with a black ribbon. The couple laid flowers and a signed card, which read: "To Vichai and all those who died in this terrible tragedy, you will be sorely missed. Our sincere condolences to the city of Leicester.”
