Royal Baby #2 is due in April 2015. The reports suggesting Kate Middleton had her 12-week scan last Wednesday seem to be true, as Kensington Palace has officially announced the Duchess of Cambridge’s due month this morning.
According to the Palace, Kate is still suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, but her condition is “steadily improving”.
Oh, and the press release says “a baby”, so the random reports that Kate is pregnant with twins is officially debunked. I’m not sure why the tabloids seem to want Kate to give birth to twins, but they pushed the twins narrative last time, too. Can’t they just be happy with Charlene’s twins?
If Kate’s 12-week scan was October 15, then her due date should be April 29, 2015 – Prince William and Kate’s wedding anniversary. I’m just hoping that KP doesn’t shut down the road all month long and let the poor journalists camp outside the Lindo wing all month, to then have the baby not be born until May. That would just be rude.
As a sign Kate’s HG is improving, Kate will attend the greeting of the President of Singapore and his wife on October 21. Kate, along with William, will greet the President at the Royal Garden Hotel, and then travel with him to Horse Guards Parade where the President will receive a Ceremonial Welcome.
Kate will not be attending the State Dinner – no tiara, darn it! – but will attend the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 Awards Ceremony at the Natural History Museum that night.
UPDATE: The Daily Mail says Kate is 14 weeks pregnant, which would make the due date around April 15th instead. /UPDATE
