Middleton is due in April, and if this maternity leave is anything like the one she took with Princess Charlotte, she’ll likely return to royal engagements in early fall. After Charlotte, who was born on May 2, 2015, Middleton returned to royal engagements on September 17. And Middleton is guaranteed to be at the May 19 royal wedding, so we’re sure to see her relatively soon.
Today, Middleton and Prince William met wheelchair basketball players in Birmingham. They had a cute coupley moment when Middleton reached down to touch William in the chair. PDA is rarer with these two than with dedicated royal hand-holders Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. But this is Middleton’s last day working for a bit so she let loose. She was particularly gleeful in the kitchen of St Luke’s Community Centre, where she helped with lunch prep.
