July’s Royal Baby

 

Hear ye, hear ye!

St James’s Palace announced today that the royal baby will be born in July!

We now know:

  • Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has recently had her 12-week scan. Many are assuming she’s 13-14 weeks pregnant.
  • If the above is true (i.e. 13-14 wks pregnant), she’s likely to give birth mid-July
  • The royal baby will be Prince X or Princess X (Royal baby girl ‘would be princess‘ – bbc.co.uk)
  • Firstborn, regardless of gender, will be next in line to the throne
  • There’s only 1 royal baby not royal babies (i.e. no twins)
  • Boy or girl? That will be a secret (as it should be)!
  • George and Victoria are now the top betting favourites for royal baby names

Just 6 more months of speculation (the baby bump watch)! 6 months until we learn the birthdate and gender of the royal baby. By July, royal baby memorabilia will be flying off the shelves like hotcakes! It’s madness but I hope the Duke and Duchess will still have their moments of privacy and peace. I admit I’m curious – what will my ‘inner guts’ tell me about the gender of the royal baby? Will I be correct again or will I finally fail?

Now that part 1 [of 2] of my 2013 wish has come true, I hope part 2 comes true in July – I’d love to share my birthday with you! 😉

I’ve started a royal countdown and have set 1 July 2013 just in case the baby comes early. 🙂

In the meantime, here are some fun (generalised) facts about July babies (I’m one of them!):

Summary:

People born in July are always fun to be around. They are forgiving, caring, and loving. They like to be alone, but are also very friendly. They truly treat others as the would like to be treated and incredibly sympathetic. They have a lot of wit and are great people to talk to. Unfortunately, they are quick to judge people by what they see. They are sensitive and moody people and also tend to be hurt fairly easily. Although they are quick to forgive, they do not forget as quickly. They are also quite secretive and therefore difficult to understand.
