The British royal family announced Monday that Prince William and Kate Middleton's baby is due in July. The palace did not specify the date.

"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted

to confirm they are expecting a baby in July. The Duchess's condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month," read a brief statement on the Royal website.

The couple announced they were expecting their first child last month when the 30-year-old Middleton was hospitalized due to acute morning sickness.
