• As the wait for the royal baby continues, so does the debate over the Duchess of Cambridge’s actual due date. Britain’s Telegraph newspaper reports Friday, citing “well-placed sources,” that medical staff at St. Mary’s Hospital — where Catherine is expected to give birth — were told the due date was July 19.

• A royal source told CNN that her due date was July 13. She and Prince William announced at the start of the year that the baby was due in July, but did not announce the date.

Why are some babies overdue?

• The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to give birth in the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital, next to Paddington Station in London. It’s where William was born, as was his brother Harry. Catherine’s mother, Carole Middleton, is likely to be on hand at the hospital.
