We Officially Know Kate Middleton’s Due Date For Baby Number Three

Following weeks of speculation, we can finally confirm Kate Middleton’s due date, thanks to one major royal announcement Kensington Palace bestowed upon us this morning. Sharing the news on social media, the residence revealed Their Royal Highnesses are expecting their third child (fifth in line to the British throne) in April—during the loveliest of seasons, of course—and despite summer’s belated end, we couldn’t be more excited yet again for the warmer months.

With the baby to be born in April, he or she will be sharing a birth month with Queen Elizabeth, born on the 21st, and celebrating just a month ahead of Princess Charlotte, whose birthday is May 2, followed by Prince George on July 22. These deets are all we know about the latest royal addition thus far, so we can’t help but return to conjecture when it comes to gender or even baby names. Let the countdown begin!
