Prince William and Kate Middleton Expect Baby in July
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July,” said a statement released by the Palace on Monday. The 31-year-old Duchess is believed to be around 13 to 14 weeks pregnant and confirmation of the birth month means it is likely she has now had her 12-week scan.
The announcement was made at 11am today (January 14th) by St James’s Palace, the traditional time of day for royal announcements. The update is also further confirmation that Kate is expecting just one baby – after speculation that she might be carrying twins. Royal sources added that it was ‘too early to say’ where the baby would be born – but it is understood that the Queen’s Surgeon-Gynaecologist Marcus Setchell will be monitoring her pregnancy.
Royal watchers are already buzzing over the possibility that the little prince or princess could share a birthday with William’s late mother, Princess Diana, who was born July 1. The statement also noted that Middleton, who turned 31 last week, has largely recovered from acute morning sickness, noting, “The Duchess’ condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month.”
Congratulations in advance to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
