Catherine Middleton’s due date has been revealed and, for those of you who are poor at maths or unfamiliar with human female biology, it is *drum roll* … July 13th.
The 31-year-old Duchess of Cambridge was apparently re-wearing her dotty Topshop summer dress as a guest at a wedding over the weekend while over iced Pimms on the other side of the Home Counties, her impending birth was being hotly-debated.
“Some of William’s closest pals were at a barbecue hosted by a family friend of the Royals recently,” a toff whinnied to Mail Online. “They were all discussing the fact that Kate’s baby is due to be born on July 13th.”
Whilst the baby is due around then, as Catherine herself said a while back, they tend to have minds of their own when it comes to making their debut in the world and the exact date.
Middlers, is not too posh to push and is going to be demurely gurning and mooing her way through a natural birth so it could be as late as early August.
Everyone is pointing out that Catherine could pop during The Queen’s Coronation Festival, a four-day celebration in mid-July to mark 60 years since Queen Elizabeth II was crowned.
If it is, then obviously Her Majesty would be thrilled, this Buckingham Palace based festival’s not anything like as big a deal as the Diamond Jubilee festivities last year and she’s barely going to be making an appearance (my aunt told me this after I’d booked tickets as a gift for my mum).
This’ll give Liz plenty of time to sit around drinking gin cocktails for several weeks before Wills and Kate bring the baby over to Buckingham Palace to meet her and Prince Philip before they Christen him or her and present the child to the crowds below from the balcony.
No, they won’t be hauling arse to the hospital to meet their great Grandchild- apparently the Queen knows the her presence at the hospital will cause a fuss so she’s going to wait for Kate to be discharged before meeting the new arrival.
