Prince William wants to be present when Kate Middleton gives birth to their little prince(ss), and who can blame him. But bailing on guys' night out?

Backing out of plans with his mates, which he did last night, is "quite unexpected," adds a source, so it seems he might have some father's intuition.

Or we're just at a loss for what to write about at this point!

The Duke and the Duchess

He may be onto something. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, let it slip Monday that she was "hopeful" that Kate will give birth "by the end of the week."

"We are all just waiting by the telephone," she said.

Kate's own mother, Carole Middleton, is okay to wait a little longer. She reportedly expects the baby to be a Leo, meaning a due date of July 23 at the earliest.

Royal Baby Watch 2013 is in full effect as Kate Middleton's due date is upon us, but there's no imminently arriving regal heir(ess) just yet.

On the one hand, all the pomp and circumstance surrounding one 31-year-old about to give birth seems silly. On the other hand, why not celebrate it?

It's a rare celebrity gossip story that is 100 percent positive, as well as world history in the making, as Queen Elizabeth II will have a third living heir(ess).

For the first time, the rules of ascension have changed so that Prince William and Kate Middleton's first-born will inherit the throne, regardless of gender.

As for when the royal baby will arrive ... it's still anyone's guess.

As the Royal Baby Watch continues today, Prince William has apparently left Wales for London, where his wife Kate Middleton is due to give birth.

Earlier this week, Prince William was putting in extra time as a search-and-rescue pilot at RAF Valley in Anglesey before he takes paternity leave.

The standby helicopter ready to rush the 31-year-old heir to her side has now departed, however, fueling speculation that the big day may be upon us.

Local sources do not believe the newly-missing helicopter necessarily indicates that the soon-to-be mom is ready to give birth imminently, however.

Photographers are camped outside the hospital, stores are stocking baby goods, social media is abuzz, and celebrity gossip sites can talk about little else.

With Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton awaiting the imminent arrival of their first child, the UK can't wait to see who is third in line to the throne.

The duo, known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge since the royal wedding of April 2011, announced they were expecting in December.

The very pregnant Kate Middleton is due July 11 or July 13, depending on what you read. It matters little at this stage. Either way, that's any day now!

Kate Middleton, 31, is due to give birth to her first child with her husband July 11, but as she herself noted in April, "babies have their own agenda."

Kate Middleton is due to give birth on July 11, but will she go into labor early?

Obviously, we have no way of knowing that, but there's a plan in place if so.

If the baby shows signs of coming earlier than expected, she will be flown by helicopter from Anglesey, Wales, to London's St. Mary's Hospital.

Once checked in, she hopes to give birth naturally. However, should she run into delivery complications, an insider says "she will have a C-section."

The baby will be announced via a bulletin behind the gates of Buckingham Palace reading "Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a child."

According to a palace aide, "There will be gun salutes, flag flying and bells. It's very exciting."

It's good to be the future king any day, no doubt. Being married to Kate Middleton alone would make that the case. But soon he'll have an heir(ess)!

The couple has not found out the gender of their impending arrival - due next month - but he or she will assume a place in history from day one.

No pressure, kid.

With so much attention focused on the birth of Lil' Kimye, and the rumored Kim Kardashian baby name floating around, we almost forgot about the royal baby.

Okay, no we didn't. The UK and much of the world are eagerly anticipating his or her arrival in July, but don't expect many details before that.

Royal officials can't say if it's a boy or girl, for instance, and not 'cause they're being coy. Kate Middleton and Prince William chose not to find out!

"They don't know the sex of the baby and have decided not to find out," said a royal official who spoke on condition of anonymity under Palace guidelines.

That's one way to keep the gender under wraps ...

Prince William and Prince Harry made a young fan's day Sunday after a charity polo match, simply by being Prince William and Prince Harry.

Armed with her phone, the eager fan approached the pair of princes, who rewarded her with big smiles - then even bigger ones after she lost her mind.

Just imagine her reaction if Kate Middleton had been with them ...

The overjoyed girl reportedly let out a squeal of excitement after she got her pic, then turned to her pal with a look of amazement, which made Harry's day.

Given the expression on her face, how could it not, honestly?

In other royal news, the fellas' grandfather Prince Phillip has been released from the hospital, while Queen Elizabeth's birthday parade was Saturday.

Oh, and Kate is due July 11-13, if you want to place your bets.

While July has long been the expected month of the birth of Prince William and Kate Middelton's baby, we now have he first report of an exact day:

July 13.

Duchess Kate and William Pic

The UK Mail on Sunday quoted an unnamed friend saying "Some of their closest pals were at a barbecue hosted by a family friend of the Royals recently."

"Kate and William and their friends were all discussing the fact that Kate’s baby is due to be born on July 13. Everyone there was very excited."

If the baby cooperates, the birth would fall right in the middle of a four-day Coronation Festival marking the 60th anniversary of the Queen's coronation.

It would also lose gambling addicts a lot of money. Kate Middleton due date betting has been heaviest in the first week of July, according to reports.

As for the baby's gender, you can bet on that too (although recent talk suggests they are having a boy). What do you think they're having, THGers?
