Brits ‘angry’ at Kate Middleton following news that she is expecting again

Kate

Kate Middleton and the royal family have announced that Kate is indeed pregnant with her third child. The Palace confirmed the news on Monday, 4 September:

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child,” a statement from Kensington Palace said. “The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

It seems that some women aren’t as delighted by the news as we are, however. Earlier this year, the Tories introduced a cap on the number of children for which struggling parents can claim child tax credits to help with the cost of raising children. 

Mothers and fathers can now only claim the credits for their first two children and not their third, nor any subsequent sons or daughters. There are a few exceptions – regarding adoption, multiple births and kinship care – but one was branded ‘disgusting’.

If a single mother can prove she has been raped or was in an abusive relationship at the time of conception, then she will be excused from the ban. The main concern is that a woman who has been subjected to such horrendous abuse should not have to justify receiving the credits by filling in an application. Many are questioning why taxpayers should shell out money for another royal baby when people in struggling households don’t receive help for theirs.
