Over Labor Day weekend, Prince William and wife Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, happily announced they are expecting their third child.
The palace tweeted: “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 was also reportedly thrilled with the news.
But, beyond the news that the pair is expecting, little is known about the impending royal addition, including when Middleton’s due date really is.
According to speculation, Middleton was forced to announce her pregnancy before her third trimester was even over due to her extreme morning sickness, known as hyperemesis gravidarum. Middleton suffered from the same condition during both of her previous pregnancies. The condition has forced Middleton to scale back on public appearances, including taking her eldest child, Prince George, to his first day of school.
Due to this, royal watchers believed that Middleton would give birth sometime in April or even early May of 2018.
But now, Prince William himself is giving the world a hint that we actually have no idea what we are talking about and that his wife may deliver sooner than we expect, People reported.
While visiting with Spitalfields Crypt Trust, a charity that works with the homeless in East London, Prince William spoke with a midwife and reportedly said, "All the best with the midwifery, I may see you sooner than you think."
Following the visit, William was given a small wooden owl as a gift for his newborn, along with one for George and one for Charlotte, according to Harper's Bazaar, so they wouldn’t get jealous of their new sibling to be. William thanked them for the kind gift adding, “Thank you very much, yes we don’t want arguments.”
