“It’s around mid-July, but babies have their own agenda,” the Duchess told well-wishers earlier this year, however it has now been suggested the expectant royal could be following William’s mum Diana, who told the press she was due ten days later than the actual date she gave birth to William.
With the impending arrival of the royal baby, excited members of the public have taken to Twitter to share their enthusiasm for the Duke and Duchess’ first child.
“Well I’m glad I’m not alone in my ‘has she gone into labour, oh my god what if I miss it?!’ anxieties :),” user @royalkatedebate tweeted.
@laurssHannah, added “noticed #royalbaby is trending and got super excited that the baby had arrived! Damn.”
One excited Twitter user admitted the talk of the royal baby had distracted her from work. “Doing a company social media audit and got distracted by the the fact the #royalbaby is trending. It’s soon to get brilliantly out of hand!” @MelanieHeath tweeted.
While, royal reporter Paul Harrison revealed he was nervously putting his iPhone on loud for the coming weeks.
“I find myself taking i-phone off ‘silent’ for first time in 3 years – must be all talk of early royal arrival! #bagofnerves, the Sky News reported tweeted.
Meanwhile, the Palace confirmed last week that the royal baby would be announced in a traditional manner, although the news will be seen on Twitter in due course.
