Friends, the wait is over! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced early this morning that they will be expecting their first child together in July.

A formal announcement came from their office, saying “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July. The Duchess’s condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month.” And though early on their was speculation that the couple may be making way for twins, a palace official confirmed that Kate is not expecting two. But maybe the Queen is hinting that the baby will be a girl, following her formal decree last week?!?!?!?!

But wait! There’s more!

Their royal babe will be welcomed into the world the same month that William’s late mother, Princess Diana, was born. The Princess of Wales was born on July 1st and though the palace has not released any specific dates, there’s a chance that the baby could share his/her late grandmother’s birthday.

In the meantime, we wish Kate and William all the happiness and health this side of the Atlantic!

While mum is the word on whether Kate’s having a boy or a girl, what do you think?
