Duchess Kate confirms: Royal baby is due in mid-July

The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge may have hid her baby bump behind her tartan coat during much of her trip to Scotland with husband Prince William, but she made some revelations about the infant throughout the royal couple’s visit.

Now six months along, Duchess Kate revealed that her baby is due in mid-July, and that she and William have long lists of both boy and girl names.

The royal couple, who are known in Scotland as the Earl and Countess of Strathern, opened up during a two-day visit to Glasgow.

While touring a sporting arena, they met with athletes and local residents, including a dazzled 4-year-old fan.

The girl, dolled up in a princess outfit, requested a kiss from the prince, but then bashfully rejected him at the last second, burying her head in her mother’s shoulder.

The royal couple also tried their hand at various sports.

William played some field hockey, while Kate shot some hoops and played a game of table tennis.

Table tennis apparently runs in the duchess’ family. Her sister, Pippa Middleton, recently challenged London Mayor Boris Johnson to a match.

The mayor accepted the dare via Twitter, although a date for the match has not been set.
