Kate Middleton: Did She Just Debut a New Baby Bump?

by at .

It's only been about 14 months since Kate Middleton welcomed her third child -- but royal bump watchers never rest, and new pics of Kate from Tuesday's Royal Ascot seem to have captured their attention.

What is the Ascot, you ask?

Kate Middleton: Baby Bump #4?!

Frankly, we have no idea, but based on the coverage from this side of the pond, it seems it's an annual event at which people scrutinize Kate Middleton's midsection hoping for signs of a pregnancy.

Kate's appearance at this year's Ascot seems to have a lot of people talking for reasons that aren't entirely clear.

Many claim they've detected a bump, but all that talk makes us feel like we're looking at one of those Magic Eye posters from the 90s.

We're just not seeing it. Can anyone help us out?

Kate Middleton: Baby Bump on Display

Sure, Kate is obscuring her midsection with her handbag in some of these pics ... but we're pretty sure that's just a normal way to stand?

Anyway, the speculation comes on the heels of reports that Kate and Prince William are trying for a Band-Aid baby that they hope will help their relationship recover from the reports that Will cheated with Rose Hanbury during Kate's last pregnancy.

“Catherine would like another baby,” a source tells Express UK.

“She loves children and is prepared to put herself through another pregnancy even though they have been complicated by severe morning sickness in the past.”

Kate Middleton: Really Pregnant Again?

The source says Kate can't wait to get knocked up again, but they also address the fact that Kate suffers from severe morning sickness in the early stages of pregnancy.

So if she were in the "barely discernible bump" stage, she probably wouldn't be making many appearances.

The insider also acknowledges that Kate already has quite a lot on her plate these days.

“As Louis is now only 13 months old, they are likely focusing their energy on parenting their three children for now,” says the informant.

Prince William and Kate Middleton: Still Together!

Yeah, 13 months would really be pushing it, as doctors recommend that women wait at least 18 months between pregnancies.

And we're guessing Kate isn't exactly longing for something to occupy her afternoons these days.

Not only does she have three kids at home, she still maintains a full schedule of official engagements.

And if the British tabloid press is to be believed (it's not) Kate still finds time to devote several hours a day to her feud with Meghan Markle.
