The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to welcome their first child mid-July.

The page created earlier this week is called “Child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge,” and says the baby is due to be born on July 13.

It also includes information about the royal baby including that the first child of Prince William and Kate will be a Prince or Princess, which was declared by the Queen earlier this year.

As Kate’s due date approaches, excitement is already building in anticipation for the royal couple’s first child. Earlier this week, it was revealed parking has been suspended outside the St Mary’s Hospital, in London, where Kate is expected to give birth to the Queen’s third-great-grandchild.

The Duke and Duchess chose the Lindo Wing of the hospital after following in the footsteps of William’s parents, Prince Charles and the late Diana, Princess of Wales, who welcomed both William and Prince Harry in the London hospital.

With a rumoured due date of July 13, the media have already started camping outside the hospital hoping to catch a glimpse of pregnant Kate as she arrives.

In an unexpected move, royal aides have confirmed they will tell the world when Kate goes into labour.

“While it is a deeply personal and private event, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge realise this is a time of national celebration and that there will be vast interest in the baby,” a spokesman revealed. “They realise many people will want to share in their happiness.”
