Royal Baby’s Due Date Is July 13, New Rumor Suggests

The royal baby’s due date is reportedly July 13, right in the middle of the celebration for the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation.

The report comes from the Daily Mail, which, admittedly, makes us question its validity. A “friend” of the expectant parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, reportedly revealed:

“Some of Kate and William’s closest pals were at a barbecue hosted by a family friend of the royals recently. They were all discussing the fact that Kate’s baby is due to be born on July 13. Everyone was very excited.”

It was already known that the royal baby’s due date was July, given Kate Middleton’s pregnancy was announced at the beginning of December, when she was just six weeks along. The announcement was made so early, because the Duchess was hospitalized for a form of extreme morning sickness. A palace rep has already said the baby will be born in July.

There have been several rumors surrounding the royal baby, including his or her gender and the due date of the likely future king or queen. Even if the baby’s due date is July 13, babies rarely cooperate — unless a c-section is planned ahead of time. Rather, as many of us understand, babies will come whenever they are supposed to.

However, should the latest rumor about the royal baby’s due date be true, it will come at a time when England is already celebrating the four-day Coronation Festival, July 11-14, to mark when Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953.

Elizabeth became queen when her father died in February 1952, which was celebrated last year through a four-day Diamond Jubilee. The Coronation Festival could compete with the Jubilee party and a royal baby would only add to the celebrations. The royals and their representatives have also not yet confirmed the baby’s sex, though rumor has it that Prince Harry is excited about the idea of a nephew.

Do you think the latest royal baby due date rumor is true?
