As you’ve likely heard, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s due date is fast approaching, and naturally, the UK press is going mad with anticipation.
Apparently, some media outlets have been receiving official royal updates regarding when they should set up shop outside of St. Mary’s Hospital in London.
That’s the location where, for the second time in less than two years, Kate is expected to welcome a newborn who will immediately have more titles than the Khaleesi.
Possibly sooner than originally expected, too.
Apparently, when Kate’s due date was first revealed several weeks ago, it was said to be April 20.
Since then, the date has moved up to April 15, which can only mean one thing – the fall of the British Empire is at hand.
We, kid! Don’t worry Canada, you’re still in good hands!
In all likelihood, everything is going according to plan and a press secretary for the royals decided to play it safe in case the baby comes a few days early (as babies are wont to do).
Still, some of the trashier overseas publications are having a field day with this news:
Has Kate scheduled a c-section? Has her hyperemesis gravidarum acted up again, forcing doctors to induce labor? Is “hyperemesis gravidarum” hard to spell?
The answers to those questions are “maybe,” “no,” and “you try it.”
As far as we can tell, everything is going just fine with Kate and the world just needs to relax.
Now go place your bets on the name and sex! There’s money to be made off this baby!
