Duchess Kate is reported past her due date, and that is becoming more apparent as the end of April nears. According to Mail Online, Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their second child any moment now, as Kate previously said that she was due mid-to-late April. Sources say that Kate is now four days past her due date, and that she may need to be induced if she doesn’t go into labor soon.
“The doctors don’t normally wait for more than a week. They will probably already have been in touch with Kate, and talked about which day which suit her best to go in and be induced if the baby doesn’t arrive in the next couple of days,” shared a source.
Duchess Kate’s due date has never been confirmed by the palace, but sources say that she may have been due as early as last Wednesday.
The sex of royal baby No. 2 is unknown, as Kate and William have chosen to be surprised. There have been a couple of hints recently that suggest the couple actually does know what they are having. According to Us Weekly, sources saw Prince William shopping on April 22. They say that he purchased an “entirely blue outfit.” Could this mean that he and Kate will soon welcome another son? Only time will tell.
As far as how Kate’s feeling these days, sources say that she’s ready to go, but that she’s “doing well.”
“She’s doing well, in good spirits. Everyone is! Although it would be fair to say she’s also eager for the time to come,” shared another source.
There are quite a few things that Kate can do to induce labor on her own. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, doctors say that having sex can speed up the process. Others believe that eating very spicy food can help a woman go into labor.
Since Duchess Kate’s due date has reportedly past, people are more anxious than ever to find out when this royal baby will make his or her appearance. Of course the news could come at any moment. The palace will be making the official announcement on social media, so many eyes have been on their official Twitter account this week.
