Everybody has been waiting for Kate Middleton’s second royal baby to make her appearance, but they’re still waiting. Even though Kate – and the royals – had unofficially confirmed that her due date was mid-to-late April, here we are at the end of April and still waiting…
However, it’s really starting to look as though Kate Middleton is just very, very overdue. The press was reportedly briefed about the timeline, just so they could get to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s hospital around the exact time of the birth and not weeks and weeks beforehand. And as we know, the press has been there for two weeks now, waiting and waiting for Kate to go into labor.
In addition to that, Prince William also took his paternity leave a few days ago, which he probably wouldn’t have done if they weren’t all expecting the baby to get here by now. Basically, all the evidence points to Kate Middleton just being overdue. The palace would have gained nothing by lying about the due date, especially since all they’re left with is a frustrated public, angry press, and a frustrated, angry, and impatient group of relatives.
There’s also been new information stating that the parking rules outside of Lindo Wing have been extended to May 5, which means that they’re probably going to wait until then before inducing labor. Several outlets have been stating that the doctors will induce labor for Kate Middleton once she’s past 12 days overdue, which will be around May 5.
What do you guys think? Did the royals and Kate Middleton deliberately mislead the public about Kate’s due date, or is she just ridiculously overdue? Will they end up inducing labor before May 5, or will they wait until after Kate’s 12 days overdue to start inducing? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
