Those anticipating the arrival of William and Kate's bundle of joy will only have to hold their breath until July. Palace officials today revealed that that is the month in which the couple's child will be born, and added, "The Duchess's condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month." Sky News reports that what the palace didn't say matters, too: In noting the two "are expecting a baby in July," the announcement essentially confirms that we should expect one baby, not two. Kate is likely in her 13th or 14th week of pregnancy. (Click to read about what life for the royal baby will be like.)
