Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is expected to give birth in mid-July. Although she suffered acute morning sickness earlier in her pregnancy, it seems Kate was able to sail through the remaining months of her pregnancy.
People from across the globe want to know if the royal couple will be having a boy or a girl. Reports say that Prince William is hoping to have a girl while Kate wants a boy.
Reports also said that the couple wanted a surprise and do not know the gender of the baby, as of time of this writing.
Kate, who is planning a natural birth, admitted that she was nervous about giving birth, as related in one report by the Mirror. She also said that she took up knitting but admitted she was not very good at it and may need some useful tips.
