Royal Baby's Due Date Announced
January 14, 2013
by Kate Goodin
The Palace released a statement today that Prince William and Kate Middleton "are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July." Note the emphasis on "a" as in one -- no twins this time (and the couple will reportedly keep the gender a secret).
So what do we know about the royal baby? Here's some just-for-fun trivia:
- A July birth means the baby could have the same birthday as Princess Diana: July 1.
- The baby will be a Cancer or Leo. Our mom-and-baby astrology tool says sporty mom (and Capricorn) Kate will get along swimmingly with an athletic Cancer babe, and a little Leo will be comfortable in the spotlight (perfect for a mini royal).
- Boy or girl? The couple's keeping mum but we have some ideas based on our favorite old wives' tales. The Mayan even/odd trick says girl (both the year of mom's birth and baby's conception are even), and Kate's Hyperemesis Gravidarum points to a girl, too. Our Chinese Gender Predictor, however, tells us it's a boy, given that William and Kate likely did the deed in October or November.
- Class of 2035: That's the expected year of Kate and William's child's college graduation. Our guess: the kid will go to Scotland's University of St. Andrews, where Wills and Kate met.
