4 Facts That Prove Kate Middleton Lied About Her Due Date

kate middletonWe've been duped, royalophiles. We all have been waiting with bated breath to read or hear the words "Kate Middleton is in labor," but I think we all need to sit back down and make ourselves comfy. It looks like we've got ample time before the big day. See, we were given the wrong due date. Not sure if it was to throw everyone off (looking at you paparazzi camped out in front of St. Mary's hospital), or if it was just hearsay that spread like wildfire, but according to a supposed credible source, Kate's due date could be July 23 or later -- not July 13 like we were originally told.

And when you think back, it makes total sense. There are so many things that prove that was never the Duchess' due date.

1. Prince William was out of town, and then played in a charity polo match on July 14. He's a busy man with many obligations, but do you really think Prince William would commit to such an engagement if his wife were due the day before? Also, over the weekend, a Kensington Palace source claimed that Wills was going back to work in Anglesey this week. Hmmm ...

2. Pippa was in Vienna. Kate's sister, Pippa, was seen partying in Vienna during Fashion Week on her sister's actual due date. I know Pippa isn't one to miss out on a good party, but I really don't think she'd be in another country the day her big sis was set to give birth.

3. Kate went to her parents' house very recently. The Duchess reportedly spent the weekend at her parents' house in Bucklebury recently, which, without traffic, is an hour and 15 minutes outside of London. When your due date is around the corner, you don't go too far from your hospital.

4. Kate's mom mentioned that the baby would be a Leo. About two months ago, the Telegraph published a piece on Carole Middleton returning a lost dog to its owners. And in the piece, the Telegraph reported that Carole told friends that her grandbaby was going to be a Leo -- which doesn't start until July 23. Why didn't we realize that sooner?

What date is your money on?

Or...the fact that it isn't anyones business? How would you like it if strangers bet on your due date, camped outside the hospital for weeks in advance, and basically stalked you from the moment you announced it?

I'm with poshkat on this one. Other then awe factor of a new princess or prince, we should really give her the privacy we would want when giving birth. (to the author) You are supposedly a mother, but yet so any compassion for a first time mother who is probably just as scared and overwhelmed as many of us were. Do you really think writing for ratings is better than having compassion. We are mothers we should stick together and demand her privacy and be loyal to EACH OTHER.

Or...she is just past her due date, like many first time moms, and the people around her are aware that they have the means to get to her when she goes into labor.

Oh MY FRIGGING GOD! Have all of you completely lost your minds?

You are calling the Princess a liar because she didn't have the baby on the birth date YOU THE PRESS created for her? The Princess never gave an exact date - ever! So exactly how could she be "lying"?
You know, I've been enjoying the "yellow journalism" that is surrounding this event - it is certainly more interesting than waiting for a baby that doesn't affect me in the least, but you have gone over the top! Needless to say, I won't be checking back with The Stir again!!

Or, when she was first pregnant the estimated due date was wrong or changed with scans? My first was estimated for March 19, then changed to April 1 with a scan. Arrived on his own March 31 and the doc looked and said they should have stayed with the Mar19 date as he was overcooked! It's not an exact science! It's and ESTIMATED due date.

Your headline is questionable.  When, exctly, did Kate "lie" to us?  When did Kate make a public announcement?  Some "source" speculated and got it wrong.  Oh, by the way, my first baby was 2 weeks late.  Did my Dr. "lie" to me?  It really is ridiculous to pretend that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is our pal and has disclosed personal information to us.  She hasn't, every single thing here is speculation and guessing and superstition and not really our business.

Just leave the princess alone and let her have her baby in peace.  How would you like it if everyone was watching your every move . YOU WOULDN'T

Well, can you blame her! She would like a little privacy at this most important in hers & Prince Williams life. I'm just as anxious as everyone else to know when the baby arrives. The baby will get here when he/she gets here. I was hoping the baby would arrive on July 17th, on my birthday! Oh, well!
