Kate, 31, is due to give birth in mid-Julyin a private wind of St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, the same clinic where Princess Diana gave birth to her two sons, William, in 1982, and Harry, in 1984.

The same sources have denied speculation on the child’s gender, saying that the parents do not yet know if the baby will be a girl or a boy, and decided not to know until birth, AP reports.

The baby will become the third in the order of succession to the throne, after his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father, Prince William.

Duchess Catherine made her last public appearance before birth on Saturday at the Queen’s official birthday in London.
