Is Kate Middleton on Maternity Leave?

The Reason We Probably Won't Be Seeing Much of the Duchess of Cambridge in the Next Few Months

LONDON, ENGLAND - MARCH 22:  Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge take part in a Commonwealth Quiz in which athletes, coaches and supporters are questioned on their knowledge of the Commonwealth, during their visit to the Copperbox Arena on March 22, 2018 in London, England.

The Duchess of Cambridge was front and centre at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding and Trooping the Colour, but now it's time for her to enjoy the rest of her maternity leave. The duchess gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis, on April 23, and her maternity leave is expected to last approximately six months, which means she'll likely return to her royal duties in October. It also explains why we haven't seen her at Royal Ascot this year.

Now that Kate is a mother of three, she's likely making the most of her time off by spending quality time with her family. In May, Kate penned a letter to East Anglia's Children's Hospices, explaining how she cherishes "simple family moments like playing outside together," and earlier this month, we spotted her, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte cheering on Prince William at the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy. Oh, and let's not forget that she will also be at Louis's christening next month. We can't wait for even more sweet royal family moments!
