On St George’s Day, 23 April 2018, it was announced that Kate Middleton went into labour! Kensington Palace confirmed the news in a statement:
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London earlier this morning in the early stages of labour.
“The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.”
Well, just goes to show you really *can’t* predict when a baby will arrive ???
Kate Middleton‘s official due date for Royal Baby No 3 was given by Kensington Palace as April 2018 ?
But as we near the end of April, and brother-in-law Prince Harry’s May wedding inches ever closer, people are wondering: erm, when exactly is Kate giving birth, then?
It’s impossible for us to truly know when the Duchess of Cambridge will drop – because you can’t ever really know exactly when a baby will arrive. The mini Prince or Princess could be early, ‘on time’, or super late.
However, OK! magazine has taken a pretty good stab at Kate’s exact due date, predicting she’s due to give birth on 28 or 29 April 2018.
Their reasoning? Kate took time off for the birth on 22 March 2018, and she’s thought to have planned for a month’s mat leave with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, too.
However, the mag says she was off for 38 and 37 days respectively, in the end, as both little ones were about a week late.
It’s also a *tad* obvious that London’s St Mary’s Hospital, where Kate is set to give birth, is expecting some important visitors very soon.
There’s a big sign up reserving numerous parking spaces outside of the Lindo Wing, which is dated until 30 April 2018.
Have your say
Did your baby arrive on the due date? And do you think Kate, late twice before, will be late a 3rd time?
We’d also love to know if you think Kate will be welcoming a little Prince or Princess… share your thoughts in the comments below, on Facebook or Instagram!
