Is Kate late? Right in the middle of her delivery window, a new due date is on our radar!
As The Great Kate Wait draws on, the world watches grows more anxious by the day. Concerns about Kate Middleton being overdue have been raised, but it turns out we may not have to worry — yet. New reports out of the hospital staff at St. Mary’s say they have been prepared for a month now, but in anticipation of an entirely different due date! Is today the day?
Kate Middleton: Real Due Date July 19?
In preparation for the delivery of the Royal Baby, the entire staff of the London hospital where Kate is set to give birth have been on alert, deciding that being over-prepared is better than rushing around at the last minute!
“A small number of staff at St. Mary’s who might be called upon when the Duchess gives birth were told they had to remain teetotal for a month before the due date,” a Royal source told The Telegraph. “They were told the due date was July 19, meaning they couldn’t drink from June 19 onwards.”
How did this date remain a mystery? “Only a handful of people were told,” reports The Telegraph, “because there are very few hospital staff who might be needed in the case of an emergency.” Trusting only essential players in Kate’s delivery also helps the date remain secure!
This due date is a week later than the original July 13 date widely reported — and suggests that the baby could be here any minute now!
Kate Middleton: Family Reveals Later Due Date
Both sides of Kate’s family have been doling out tiny clues to Kate’s true due date — even though the Palace kept the official date mum, offering only “mid-July” as baby season.
On July 15, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, revealed that she anticipated the baby’s birth by the end of the week, putting the July 19 date on the timeline.
Kate’s own mother, Carole Middleton, let is slip that she expects the baby to be a Leo, an astrological sign not starting until July 23.
