Kate Middleton's Due Date Is In July, Palace Confirms

Posted: Updated:

Kate Middleton's due date is official!

Well, sort of. Clarence House announced Monday morning that the Duchess of Cambridge, pregnant with her and Prince William's first child, is expecting the baby in July. According to AP, the royal couple "are delighted to confirm" the due date, although they still won't tell the world whether it's a boy or a girl. The announcement seems to indicate, however, that she is not expecting twins, as many (including us!) had hoped.

A July due date comes as a bit of a surprise: When the palace first announced Catherine's pregnancy in early December, reports speculated that the duchess was about 12 weeks along, putting her due date in May or June of 2013. A July due date means the announcement must have come even earlier, an unconventional move supposedly forced by Kate's worsening morning sickness, or hyperemesis gravidarum.

These days Kate seems healthy and happy as can be, smiling at the unveiling of her first formal portrait last Thursday. According to the AP, the palace confirms today that "the duchess's condition continues to improve."

And thus the baby bump watch continues...
