However, new reports have come to light, which suggest that Kate’s mother Carole Middleton has actually penned her real due date as 22 July 2013.
According to sources Carole indicated that the baby would be a Leo birth sign which means Kate could potentially give birth anytime between 22 July – 22 August. Nevertheless after the Duchess of Cambridge’s bout of hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute morning sickness that meant she had to release a pregnancy statement earlier than usual protocol, Kate should be due anytime after next weekend.
Kate went on maternity leave on 13 June 2013, and has only been seen on one official appointment since. In spite of this the mum-to-be has been photographed shopping for antique furniture enjoying a well-earned ‘nesting phase’ before the Royal baby arrives; something most mothers take pleasure in.
The Duchess of Cambridge is of course due to give birth at the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, which is currently surrounded by a frenzy of media.
In the past Kate has commented that, “babies have their own agenda”, so could the birth be even further away than originally expected?
