Kate Middleton and Prince William are reportedly planning on expanding their family as they want their children to grow up close in age.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed Prince George in July 2013 and Princess Charlotte in May 2015 and according to friends, they'd like to add another to their brood sooner rather than later.
In a profile by Vanity Fair, sources told the publication, “They want at least three kids and for them to be close in age.”
The couple are based in their country estate Amner Hall and travel to their apartment at Kensington Palace for overnight stays and royal business in London, but intend on living there until they are called up to duty.
"It’s no secret that William doesn’t like the media intrusion into his life, and in the country he can escape,” a family friend told the mag.
“The Queen and the Prince of Wales have given their blessing for William to live this life, and William is very grateful. It’s enabling him and Kate to raise their family in a way that’s as close to ordinary as they can get.”
“William doesn’t want George and Charlotte going through some of the experiences he went through growing up. Everything he does regarding his family is very deliberate.”
