"The trip is planned for Australia and New Zealand," an insider said.

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."

In any case, news of the birth will be revealed via a framed announcement placed on a wood and gold easel behind the gates of Buckingham Palace.

"While it is a deeply personal and private event, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge realize this is a time of national celebration," a spokesman said.

"They realize that many people will want to share in their happiness."

Following the newborn's arrival any day now, Prince William will take a two-week paternity leave before resuming his Royal Air Force duties.

Kate Middleton and the baby, meanwhile, will shuttle between London and her parents' home in Berkshire over the duration of the summer.

Come September, the entire brood will move into Kensington Palace's Apartment 1A, where the mom-to-be has been putting the finishing touches on a nursery.

Counting down the days! What do you think they're having?
