Kate Middleton is rumored to be pregnant with her and Prince William’s fourth child. But the fact of the matter is, she isn’t.

A body language expert recently told Express that there’s one way for the public to know if Kate is indeed pregnant. After all, one very common gesture is seen among pregnant women.

Judi James said that women who repeatedly touch their stomach could be pregnant. This is because this kind of bump-cupping ritual is common during pregnancy.

However, James also said that even though Kate repeatedly touches her stomach in public, she could be an exception to this rule. “For Kate though, things are not that simple or direct,” she said.

“Kate’s signature handclasp or clutch bag carrying poses do often include this kind of a gesture so this wouldn't be unusual for her,” she explained. “What is interesting is that when she chatted with Eugenie at Ascot both women seemed to be producing and mirroring this pose, which might hint at a new pregnancy in the royal family although possibly not for Kate.”

Last month, Kate also silenced the ongoing rumors regarding her alleged fourth pregnancy. While at the King’s Cup, the mom of three sported a new hair color. According to the NHS, the use of hair dye could be harmful to an unborn child.

“Many women decide to wait to dye their hair until after the first 12 weeks of pregnancy when the risk of chemical substances harming the baby is much lower,” the NHS said. And two weeks ago, Kate was once again photographed with a new hairstyle and color.

It is unlikely for Kate to have been three months pregnant in August. And since she doesn’t have a growing baby bump, it’s also unlikely that she’s three months pregnant now.

During her outing at Thomas’s Battersea with Princess Charlotte, Prince William’s wife looked as slim as ever. She also looked stunning in her floral Mark Jacobs dress.

More importantly, Kate’s pregnancy will only be announced and confirmed by Kensington Palace. The ongoing reports about the matter are merely speculations.
