Kate Middleton is due to give birth to her first child in July, the Palace confirms.

"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 at the hospital last month," read a statement from St. James's Palace.

Although Prince William's wife was suffering from severe morning sickness at the beginning of her pregnancy, it sounds like she's on the mend. Although rumors of twins have been rampant, a 12-week scan showed that the British beauty is carrying just one heir in her belly.

Miss Middleton is believed to be about 14 weeks pregnant, and although we have yet to see a distinct baby bump, we caught a glimpse of the beginnings of one when she attended the unveiling of her official portrait last week.

We're dying to know if she's expecting a prince or a princess!
