In early September, Kensington Palace confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child.

The news came just one month after Kate joked about wanting "more children" while on the royal tour of Poland; however, it has yet to be announced when the new prince or princess is due.

If Kate was twelve weeks along at the time of the announcement (the typical point at which a pregnancy is shared publicly), that would put her due date around April of 2018. However, a recent comment from Prince William suggests that the royal baby could arrive earlier than previously expected.

During a visit on September 19 to the Spitalfields Crypt Trust, a charity that aims to help those dealing with homelessness and addiction, William spoke with Gracie Gunn, who is in training to become a midwife.

"All the best with the midwifery. Might see you sooner than you think," he reportedly quipped, leading many to believe Kate's pregnancy is further along than we thought.

However, with both Prince George and Prince Charlotte, Duchess Kate announced her pregnancy on the early side as a result of her hyperemesis gravidarum, or morning sickness.

Given that she is suffering from the condition again with this pregnancy, a due date closer to May 2018 could be more accurate.

Either way, the new royal will likely arrive next spring.
