Kate Middleton’s due date has been revealed after months of waiting. The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to deliver on July 13. Prince William and Kate have kept a notoriously busy schedule since the royal pregnancy was announced.
Duchess Kate’s due date is in the middle of Queen Elizabeth’s 60th anniversary for her Coronation. The four-day Coronation Festival takes place July 11-14. The 87-year-old monarch was crowned in 1953.
The Daily Mail first reported Kate’s due date. Apparently a friend overheard some gossip.
“Kate and William’s closest pals were at a barbecue hosted by a family friend of the royals recently,” the source told Daily Mail. “They were all discussing the fact that Kate’s baby is due to be born on July 13. Everyone was very excited.”
William and Kate aren’t expected to attend the Coronation Festival. Babies are rarely born on their due dates, but Kate will be preparing for the birth either way.
Since the royal pregnancy was announced in the press, nonstop speculation has surrounded the famous fetus. There have even been photos digitally created predicting what the royal couple’s boy or girl child will look like. Kate’s fashion is closely watched and analyzed over the status of her baby bump. Princess Diana was the last member of the British royal family this intriguing to the public as far as pregnancies go. Like Kate, Diana had acute morning sickness in the first trimester. Kate required hospitalization, however. That spilled over to the press and the palace had to make a sudden announcement that William and Kate were expecting.
