With his wife nearing the end of her pregnancy, Prince William is still scheduled to play in a charity polo match on Sunday that is a two-hour drive from home.
However, there is the chance that his planned appearance could be scrapped if the royal baby arrives by this weekend.
“He will play in the charity match if he is able to,’’ Nick Loughran, a spokesman for Prince William, told TODAY.com. “That is, if the Duchess hasn’t gone into labor at that point.”
Buckingham Palace has not confirmed a set due date for Duchess Kate, only announcing that it is in mid-July.
Prince William is schedule to appear in a charity polo match in Gloucestershire on Sunday, which is 94 miles away from central London. He will play in the Jerudong Trophy Match at Cirencester Park Polo Club while his wife remains in Kensington Palace within a short drive of St. Mary Hospital, where the baby will be delivered. He also is scheduled to play in a match that day to benefit the charities WellChild and Child Bereavement UK.
