Speculation has been rife among royal watchers both in the media and public about Prince William and Kate’s first child. Especially her 'baby bump' sighting, with the latest one said to be in Scotland. Here is one sure shot way to make some cool bucks out of guessing when the royal baby will finally be born.
The odds apparently are stacked in favor of placing your bets on the date: August 27, 2013. According to one family history website, August 27th is the day next year, whenwill finally deliver a lovely little royal, the ‘anointed baby’ the world is looking forward to with great anticipation.
The said date is not just an arbitrary number pulled out of the hat; rather a great deal of thought and calculation has gone behind it by the team of experts at genesreunited.co.uk. The website apparently must love the royal family to have taken the risk of predicting Duchess Kate's due date for delivering the royal baby. Academics at the site are quite confident Kate Middleton will give birth to her first child on August 27, 2013.
Its only after thoroughly researching the royal family’s records and marriages over its vast and dramatic history of a hundred years, that the historians at genesreunited.co.uk apparently have made the eerily, precise prediction. The experts deduced that 851 days is the average period between a royal wedding and the birth of a royal newborn.
Rhoda Breakell, head of Genes Reunited declared: “William and Kate have spoken about their desire to start planning for a family, so make sure that you put the 27th August 2013 in your diaries, we have a good feeling about this one.” (Well, in that case lets watch this space next year, August)
Not just the due date of the royal baby, the website even predicted the most likely names for Kate and William’s unborn baby. A baby girl will most likely be named Carole, Elizabeth, Mary, Philippa or Victoria and in case of boy, the top name choices are Charles, George, Henry, James and Michael. Thank God!!! the website didn’t predict the sex of the royal baby in advance.
Wonder what royal watchers make of this precise birth date? As it is whenever the Duchess of Cambridge makes an appearance at a public engagement or anywhere outdoors, someone or other swears they have spotted the baby bump on her slim statuesque frame. But, don’t think she is pregnant just yet.
All said and done Kate's pregnancy rumors don't show any signs of abating. The poor lady has to only put her hand somewhere near her stomach and Lo!!! the very next day you will see headlines splashed all over the media “Royal heir to be born.” This guessing game is not likely to stop till Catherine does deliver a baby. However, one can’t really blame the Brits or royal fans for this, as it’s only natural for them to want the royal lineage to be carried forward.
Logically the above prediction sounds quite accurate (but for the exact date) against the backdrop of the rumors that Prince William and Kate Middleton first plan to get through the Olympics and their royal tour of the South Pacific. Which means Duchess Kate would be conceiving sometime in November of this year, which in turn means Christmas good news. Well, hope its true. Keeping fingers crossed for the 'miracle' announcement.
