Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy update
While the Kensington Palace officials announced that Kate Middleton was pregnant on Sept. 8, 2014, it was believed at that time that she was already five to six weeks pregnant. According to that calculation the Duchess would give birth to her second child by the end of April.
But Mirror now reports that The Duchess may be giving birth in mid-April, possibly even early April. This is because artist Paul Cummins revealed that the Duchess was already suffering with severe morning sickness on Aug. 5, 2014 when she came to see his stunning poppy installation at the Tower of London.
Cummins told Sunday Times that :”Kate was not going to come as, though it had not been announced, she was already pregnant and suffering. But she insisted. It was her last public outing for a while”.
The Duchess was almost going to cancel the tour that she took with Prince William and brother-in-law, Prince Harry. The 33-year-old’s morning sickness prompted the announcement of her pregnancy on Sept. 8, 2014.
While pinning an exact date is difficult when it comes to babies, it seems fairly certain that Kate Middleton may give birth in mid rather than late April. The Duchess will stop attending functions in March when she will rest and prepare for the birth of her second child.
It was also reported that Prince William and Kate do not plan to have a nanny or maternity nurse, instead, they will defy royal tradition and be hands-on parents. The couple did the same for Prince George.
The royal baby will be born in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s hospital in London and Kate will thereafter recuperate at her family home in Berkshire. Doctor Alan Farthing, who delivered baby George, will oversee her delivery along with an elite medical team.
