Buckingham Palace has today confirmed the official title of the royal baby, which is now believed to be due on Saturday, 13 July , 2013
The first child born to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be known as, His Royal Highness Prince (name) of Cambridge, or Her Royal Highness Princess (name) of Cambridge.
The baby will be born at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, where William was born in 1982.
According to former Cambridge mayor Cllr Sheila Stewart, who met Kate on the royal visit to the city last year, having a prince or princess is a first for the city.
‘When we did a lot of research after it was first announced that the couple were to get the title, nothing like that was found,’ she said, speaking in the press today. ‘There were some dukes of Cambridge but not a prince or princess.
‘It can only be good news for Cambridge. Everyone is so excited about it. The whole country is waiting for the birth.’
