When is Kate Middleton due? Is the Duchess of Cambridge having twins?

Kate Middleton is currently expecting her third royal baby with husband Prince William, 35.

The 36-year-old mother of two has been proudly displaying her baby bump during recent public appearances. 

Royal fans will no doubt be looking forward to another little member of the Cambridge family.

What do we know about Kate Middleton’s pregnancy thus far?

When is Kate Middleton due?

Kate Middleton’s pregnancy was announced by Kensington Palace on 4 September last year.

The Kensington Palace twitter account stated: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child.

“The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

The palace added that Kate was suffering from the same morning sickness illness that has affected the Duchess before.

It said: “As with their previous two pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

“Her Royal Highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today.

“The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.”

It is known exactly how far along Kate was before the announcement was made, however, morning sickness usually starts in the sixth week of pregnancy.

If this were correct to the day it would place the date of conception on 31 July 2017.

This would place the due date on 30 April 2018. This would be close to Kate and William’s anniversary, and Charlotte’s birthday, on May 2.

Is Kate Middleton having twins?

Although it has been a persistent rumour, there is no evidence that Kate is expecting twins.

Prince William hinted that he would be overwhelmed by an arrival of two babies. 

At the 2018 Centrepoint awards, he said: “Twins? I think my mental health would be tested with twins.

“Two is fine, I don’t know how I’m going to cope with three, I’m going to be permanently tired.”
