The 37-year-old was pictured with a new hairstyle while taking Princess Charlotte to her first day at school two weeks ago, sparking pregnancy rumours online.
In the past, Kate has been known to do this before announcing a pregnancy (she made changes to her hair prior to breaking the news of her pregnancies with Prince George and Princess Charlotte).
"Like a lot of women Kate does tend to change her hair when she is pregnant, although not dramatically," Body language expert Judi James told Daily Star Online.
"The new style and colour she emerged with when she took George and Charlotte to school did look like one of her glossiest and most fashionable looks to date.
"But then she did say she’d had it done for the school run, and it could have been aimed at giving her an emotional lift as Charlotte left home for school for the first time.

Another clue, according to Judi, is that she was pictured touching her belly during the Back to Nature garden launch at Wisley.
"Kate did meet a lot of small children and one baby in particular recently and it wasn’t hard to describe her teeth-baring, dimple-creating smile of utter delight as she stroked the baby’s head and chatted to the children as broodiness," she said.
"She also touched her belly, which is a common gesture of protection from women in the early stages of pregnancy.
"However this is a gesture that Kate uses a lot, pregnant or not, so tends to be less than reliable as a clue. She did look broody but she appears besotted with youngest child Louis and the baby she met could just have reminded her of him."
Jessica O’Reilly, from Ladbrokes, told the publication that "Royal fans are convinced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are shortly going to announce that they’re expecting the fourth member of their brood, sooner rather than later."
"Fans seem to think Kate is showing all of the telltale pregnancy signs and are hopefully George, Charlotte and Louis could be welcoming a brother or sister into their fold next year," she added.
What's more, Ladbrokes bookmaker Alex Apati is "confident" the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their fourth child.
"Royal fans reckon Kate is showing early signs of a potential pregnancy. We've welcomed two royal babies into the world in as many years and punters are seemingly confident Kate will make it three in three," said Alex.
"We've taken a flurry of bets across the country in shop over the last week or so following recent royal appearances from the Duchess of Cambridge.
"Kate and Will have made it clear they're keen to add to their family in the past and with a second baby soon to be expected from Harry and Meghan, and a potential royal wedding on the horizon for Beatrice, we're strapping ourselves in for a hectic 2020!
"We're so confident the happy couple will add a fourth baby to their family we've now pulled the plug on all bets."
