The Palace has finally answered the burning question "Is Kate Middleton having twins?" The answer, from St. James's Palace today (Monday) is "no." "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July," an announcement on their official website states.
In addition, Palace officials confirm Kate has not had any more setbacks with her acute morning sickness. "The Duchess's condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month," the statement reads. The condition, known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum, is more common in women expecting twins. That added to speculation Kate was carrying an heir and a spare.
Today's confirmation of a single royal baby is the first time the Palace has broken its silence on Kate Middleton's pregnancy since making the premature baby announcement in early December. That's when the Duchess was admitted into the hospital and the couple opted to confirm the pregnancy earlier than they were planning. The confirmation of Kate Middleton's due date is also a clear indication she's reached the 12 week mark.
No specific due date for the royal baby was revealed.
