Kensington Palace announced the glorious news of Kate Middleton’s pregnancy this morning, and suffice it to say, we have so many questions… Like how much longer do we have to wait until baby number three arrives?
As with her previous two pregnancies, with Prince George (four) and Princess Charlotte (two), Middleton is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum (severe morning sickness). In the past, K-Middy's pregnancies were revealed earlier than the 12-week mark because of her debilitating condition, and this time is no different.
Naomi Smith, secretary to Catherine Quinn, the Communications Secretary, Household Office of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, confirmed, “The Duchess’s pregnancy has not yet passed the 12-week point…”
With this timeline in mind, we can use Charlotte and George’s respective birth announcement timelines as a reference to infer when the third mini-majesty may arrive. News of Princess Charlotte’s birth was released on September 8, 2014, and mama Middleton gave birth on May 2, 2015. With George, the announcement came on December 3, 2012, and the Duchess gave birth on July 22, 2013. If the Royal Family is using the same time equation for their third child, Middleton’s due date is likely around late April or early May.
In July, the Duchess sparked royal baby fever all over again when she joked, “We will just have to have more babies” after receiving a baby gift during the Polish Royal Tour. It seems that K-Middy and Prince William may not have been joking after all...
We're already dreaming of the adorable baby photos.
