Kate Middleton will not show in public due to maternity leave


Kate MiddletonKate Middleton - Kate Middleton, the wife of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, appeared during the Trooping The Colour Festive to celebrate the Queen’s official birthday. However, she is entitled to a six-month break after giving birth to Prince Louis on April 23rd. She has actually been on maternity leave since April.

“Kate will be resuming Royal duties after taking extended maternity leave as expected after Louis’s birth, probably in the autumn,” said royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, as cited from

Kate’s maternity leave extended to October 2018. She will not attend official engagements until then. However, she can choose to appear on selected events, such as during the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. According to Royal biographer, Duncan Larcombe, it was a tradition for women in Royal family to take a six-month leave after giving birth.

“The wedding doesn’t count because it was a family affair but other than that, [Kate] will pick and choose her engagements. If she wanted, Kate could disappear into the background until October!” said Larcombe, as cited from

During her break, Kate will likely take care of Prince Louis herself. Fitzwilliams said that the new prince’s christening will likely be held in Summer.
