Duchess Of Cambridge's Due Date May Be Sooner Than We Think, According To The Duke Of Cambridge

Kensington Palace has not confirmed when she is due.

Since announcing the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her third child, Kensington Palace has not revealed when she is due.

However the Duke of Cambridge has alluded to the fact she may give birth sooner than we think.

The Duke was visiting Spitalfields Crypt Trust, a charity that supports those dealing with homelessness and addiction. He met recovering alcoholic Grace Gunn, who is training to become a midwife.

When saying his goodbyes, he said to Gunn, according to the Guardian: “All the best with the midwifery – might see you sooner than you think.”

Further speculation surrounding how far along the Duchess is in her pregnancy arose when the Duke was speaking at National Mental Health and Policing conference in Oxford on 14 September.

Addressing the news of his expectant third child, the Duke said, according to The Mirror: “It was a bit anxious to start with, but [we can] start celebrating this week.”

Because women typically share their pregnancy news when they are 12 weeks, people assumed this suggested the Duchess was past this point in her pregnancy.
