LONDON — The former Kate Middleton is due to give birth to her first baby in July, and her health is improving after a bout of severe morning sickness, palace officials said today.
The child of Kate and Prince William will be third in line to the British throne.
The palace would not comment on whether the baby is a boy or a girl. The British government is changing centuries-old succession laws to ensure that a royal daughter will have the same claim to the throne as a son.
Bookmaker William Hill released odds on the name of the royal baby, with favorites including George, Victoria and Diana, all at 10-1.
