The Duke of Cambridge left the Duchess of Cambridge’s side on Sunday to play a charity polo match with his brother nearly 100 miles away and appeared to be very relaxed and at ease despite the fact that his wife is due to give birth to the third in line to the throne any day now.
He seemed very at ease with fellow team mates and friends which makes us think that the baby’s reported due date of 13th July is actually later than first thought.
The Duchess of Cambridge was said to be staying with her parents in Bucklebury, Berkshire, while her husband was away playing polo.
It has been reported in The Telegraph website that the Duke and the Duchess of Cornwall are going ahead with a pre-planned trip to Cornwall this week that will take them to Bude on Monday and Lostwithiel on Wednesday. However, it is thought that they haven’t made any special transport arrangements in case the Duchess goes into labour and needs to return to London quickly.
A source told The telegraph that the royal couple would make a decision about whether to cut short their visit to Cornwall if the baby arrives while they are away, but assuming that there are no complications they are thought to want to fulfil their official duties if at all possible.
She is due to give birth at the private Lindo wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, but there are contingency plans for her to be taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading if she is out of the capital when she goes into labour.
