FILE - In this Wednesday, April 24, 2013 file photo Britain's Kate the Duchess of Cambridge, who is several months pregnant, in her capacity as patron of "The Art Room", holds flowers as she leaves after attending an evening reception to celebrate the work of the charity at the National Portrait Gallery in London. By the time you’re reading this, the Duchess of Cambridge could be in labor. Or it could be a matter of hours. Or days. Or weeks. As Britain’s Prince William and his wife, Kate, await the birth of their first child _ and the next heir to the English throne _ some are convinced the royal due date has already passed, even though the Palace has not given an exact date. Many in the British media predicted the baby would be born last week and the Prince himself is now on official leave. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham, File)
