UPDATE: Some, like the Daily Mail, are speculating that Kate's due date may be earlier than July 13! Apparently Princess Di kept her real due date under wraps to get a little privacy after the birth, which seems reasonable. William was born 10 days before his announced due date, so if Kate and William follow suit (and the baby is on time), their real due date would be... well, any day now!
All that aside, though, if Kate's actually a couple of weeks farther along than we all think she is, then homegirl is extra-abnormally tiny!
EARLIER: North who? Kardashian babies are a thing of the past and now the world’s attention is focused on Kate Middleton’s fast-approaching due date. Though the duchess hardly looks pregnant, thanks to her fabulous maternity style, she is, in fact, due to give birth to the royal baby in July 2013! E!’s sources say July 14, and the Daily Mail’s sources say July 13. Since babies historically haven't cared much about exact due dates, we'll just say mid-July.
This royal baby will be third in line to the throne, and undoubtedly adored by the British people.
Kate’s pregnancy has been one of the most widely discussed this year, and we personally can’t wait for the first official photo of the royal offspring (and the first awkward baby portrait).
Kate and William's royal baby is almost here, y'all!
Pregnant Kate Middleton hasn’t revealed an official due date, though gossip outlets have thrown out May, June, and July as strong possibilities, especially since Kate was already sticking to water on her and Prince William’s royal tour of Asia in September.
Couched in the happy news of Kate’s pregnancy was the reveal that she’d been hospitalized with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a condition that manifests as acute morning sickness. According to the American Pregnancy Association, the symptoms typically appear between four and six weeks, and then peak between nine and 13 weeks. Eight weeks would put her toward the middle of that range.
