Kate is reportedly supposed to give birth on July 13, but her husband has made other plans that weekend! A rep for Kensington Palace tells HollywoodLife.com William will try to make a charity polo match on July 14!
Prince William, 31, is excited to be a first-time dad, but he surprisingly has other obligations the weekend his wife Kate Middleton, 31, is reportedly due to give birth! Instead of waiting by Kate’s side on the grounds of Kensington Palace, he’ll be more than 90 miles away — playing polo!
Prince William Playing Polo Weekend Of Kate Middleton’s Due Date
The Duke of Cambridge is scheduled to play in a charity polo match on July 14 — the day after Kate’s reported due date! Since the royal baby hasn’t arrived yet, will he still make the match?
“Yes, if he is able to,” a Kensington Palace spokesperson tells HollywoodLife.com. “The Duke hopes to play polo on Sunday [July 14].”
Even though Kate’s reported due date is July 13, another spokesperson for the royal couple told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that doesn’t mean she’ll head to the hospital on the exact day. The rep said:
Babies come when they want to, so we will see!
However, if Kate hasn’t gone into labor by the time the dad-to-be is playing his match, he could miss it! Will is playing in the Jerudong Trophy Match, and a charity polo match that benefits WellChild and Child Bereavement UK charities, according to Today.com.
The charity event is in Gloucestershire, which is 94 miles away from London — where Kate will be giving birth!
Kate Middleton Staying Near St. Mary’s Hospital
Kate, in the meantime, has been lying low at Nottingham Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace, which is close to St. Mary’s Hospital. When she goes into labor, she’ll be near the hospital — but Prince William could be far away!
