So Sneaky! Could The Royal Baby Be Coming Next Week?

4 comments

The Royal Family is one steeped in rich, British tradition: Swan upping, changing of the guard, and giving the public false due dates for their unborn children. Following in Princess Diana's footsteps, Kate and Wills may have misled us about when the Royal Baby will arrive.

Though we have been told that we could expect the new arrival around July 10, Kate's suspicious behavior this weekend may indicate that the due date is sooner than we thought. As in, the baby could be here next week.

This weekend, Kate missed the wedding of friends Thomas van Straubenzee and Lady Melissa Percy to stay closer to St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, where she is set to give birth. Though Kate didn't (or couldn't?) attend the wedding, both William and Harry took part in the celebration. Curiouser and curiouser, Kate.

We shouldn't be surprised, really. You see, in 1982, Princess Di announced that William was due on July 1, but he was actually born 10 days earlier. Protecting the privacy of such an intimate moment should be expected, at this point. And in the spirit of full disclosure (ahem, Kate), we're actually really happy the baby's coming early, because we legitimately cannot wait any longer. (Mirror)
