We’re just eight weeks from welcoming the future King or Queen of Britain in to the world as HRH The Duchess of Cambridge prepares to give birth to the first direct future heir to the throne since Prince William’s own birth in 1982.
Sources report that the Duchess is due to give birth on 13th July. We already know that her due date is mid-July for sure, though no specific date has been formally released.
Multiple images have surfaced of the Duchess of cambridge out shopping with family for baby goods, including a baby basket. Some sources are now saying that Kensington Palace Apartment 1A is being amended to include a nursery for the Cambridges’ first child.
From birth, the child of the Cambridges will be styled as HRH Prince/Princess <NAME> of Cambridge and will immediately be placed as 3rd in line to the throne, pushing Prince Harry down to 4th and everyone below a place down.
One day, this child will be King or Queen of the United Kingdom. Thanks to the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, if the baby is a girl, it can no longer be overtaken by a younger brother and will definitely be Queen.

Which members of the royal family have been born at the King Edward VII hospital? Most royal babies from the 1970s onwards have been born at St Mary’s (Zara, Peter, William, Harry, Gloucester’s, Lord Frederick, Lady Gabriella) Portland (Beatrice & Eugenie), and Edward and Sophie’s children were born at Frimley Park hospital.
I think it will be a girl, FWTW.
The snarky part of me wants her to name the child something bizarre, simply to see how many people follow suit.
