I do think so. If they say "early summer" it means she's due in late june/early july:flowers:

I'm not really expecting an actual date to to be announced but at least the month expected.

I agree with you:flowers:

My guess-timate is that the baby is due in August. Here's my reasoning: Diana's pregnancy with William was announced the first week of November and he was born June 21. We know that the announcement of Catherine's pregnancy was brought forward by at least a month due to the HG, so they wouldn't otherwise have said anything until about now. November/June extrapolates to January/August. :smile:

I have a feeling that Kate was around 7-8 weeks pregnant at the beginning of November (they just said she hadn't reached the 12 week stage yet). I think its a very good possibility that the Cambridge's first child could be born on Great Grandpa Philip's birthday. I think that would be so wonderful. To top it off, if a girl, it would be so fitting to name the princess Alice. What a wonderful salute to a very extraordinary man! :biggrin:

They just said she was less than 12 weeks Pregnant. Im guessing she around 3 months now. :flowers:

hkittybaby 01-09-2013 05:18 AM

I bet she's 14 weeks pregnant now

According to a new article in The Telegraph, Catherine and William will soon be announcing the month that the baby will be born.

Quote:

The Duke and Duchess are expected shortly to announce the month in which their first child will be born.

They announced the Duchess’s pregnancy far earlier than the usual 12-week stage because of her hospital stay, and royal aides said an announcement of the baby’s due month would be made shortly after the Duchess’s 12-week scan.

I assume the big surprise tomorrow is the due date. ;)

soapstar 01-10-2013 06:04 PM

I hope so, but the clue seems to point toward her first official portrait. If the due date isn't announced tomorrow, I expect it will be announced some time next week or so.

Or, we may be completely surprised, and get an announcement that deals with neither of the topics :biggrin:.

I wonder if the Cambridges would maybe change the rules and let everyone in on not only the due date but the sex of the baby. Would'nt that be great? Since they are considered the new face of the Monarchy, why not? This is all wishing on a star of course but hey, you never know what this couple will do. And besides, it would be kind of nice to be able to prepare for a wonderful prince or princss party. I suppose we will see. I just can't wait to find out.

Why not? Possibly because that's one of the most private pieces of information a couple ever gets? You don't see other royal houses doing it, and they're by far more modern than the BRF.
It is William and Catherine who have to prepare for the baby, if they wish to find out they probably will.

Official confirmation : The Duchess is due in July 2013 :

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting a baby in July

Archduchess Zelia 01-14-2013 06:22 AM

Pretty much as predicted, though it was early they had to confirm the pregnancy.

CanRoyal 01-14-2013 06:23 AM

....note the confirmation in the official announcement that it will be a singleton birth - "a baby".

Palace have also confirmed (because of the ill-informed speculation) it is NOT twins.
