Prince William To Play Polo, Kate Ready For Royal Baby

Prince William will go ahead with his previously planned charity polo match this Sunday, while Kate awaits the arrival of the royal baby.

The soon-to-be-father will be in Glouchestershire on Sunday, which is nearly 100 miles away from his wife who is in London getting ready to welcome their first born.

It appears that the royal couple knows something the rest of the public doesn’t. The due date for the baby to be born is Thursday, July 11.

Kensington Palace confirmed to ABC News that the Duke of Cambridge, 31, will play at the Cirencester Polo Club in Gloucestershire, England, Sunday afternoon, as previously planned.

The match will benefit two of the prince’s charities, Centrepoint and Child Bereavement U.K, and one supported by Prince Harry, who will join his brother at the match.

However, the Palace added that should Kate go into labor while he is playing polo Prince William will leave to be by his wife’s side.

A helicopter is on stand by near William’s residence in Wales, where he is stationed as a search and rescue pilot. There is no need for a chopper for the trip between Glouchestershire and London since it’s about a two hour drive.

Kate, 31, will deliver the royal baby in the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, the same hospital in which her husband was born.

The Duchess of Cambridge has acknowledge that babies are unpredictable and appears to be in agreement letting her husband enjoy the polo match.

“It’s around mid-July but apparently babies have their own agenda,” Middleton replied to a homeless shelter employee’s inquiry about her due date back in April, according to the UK’s Mirror.

This is the couple’s first born and third in line to the throne of England after Prince Charles and his or her father William.

Do you think Prince William should be playing polo while his wife is waiting to give birth?
