Kate Middleton

Finally, William’s getting what he’s always craved – normal family life: And now he’ll fight to give his child the loving stability he barely knew as a boy

  • Kate will have been with William for 12 years by the time she gives birth
  • Kate will have her first baby at 31-years-old
  • They have broken the unofficial Royal Family convention of announcing a baby within the first year of their marriage

By any standards of love and marriage, the progression has been leisurely. The fact is, by the time the former Catherine Middleton becomes the mother of our future king or queen in the summer of 2013, she will have been with Prince William for 12 years.
It’s been very slow progress from first date to first child (who will be third in line to the throne) — not exactly the rush of blue blood normally associated with royal marriages.
Kate, the girl from Bucklebury in Berkshire, will have her first baby at 31. That’s only a year off the age at which William’s mother, Diana, was separated from Prince Charles and making a new life for herself.

William and Kate even broke with the unofficial Royal Family convention of having a baby — or at least announcing that one is on the way — within the first year of their marriage.
That, of course, would have stolen some of the limelight from the Queen during her dazzling Diamond Jubilee, and it was something they would never have done.

We must assume that even now, such an announcement would still have been a few  weeks away but for the fact that it had emerged that Kate was in hospital suffering from acute morning sickness.
Still, they’ve reached this crucial milestone at last, and how intriguing it will be in the coming years to see just how this very modern couple — this future monarch and his queen — will combine the heavy demands of duty with those of family life.

No royal couple has ever had such a challenging future maintaining historical tradition while being very much of a fast-moving, modern world. 
And it’s pretty clear now, even to those doubters who were uneasy at William’s middle-class choice of bride — some of whom mocked her former air hostess mother Carole with childish taunts of ‘doors to manual’ — that Kate has risen brilliantly to the challenge.
If anyone silenced them it was the Queen, whose fondness for Kate was already reaching an unprecedented high in the run-up to her Jubilee this summer, and Prince Philip, who has never tired of informing people what a lucky escape his grandson had not to lose Kate after giving her up for three months in 2007.

Kate has had to time everything to fit in with national events

Indeed, Kate’s incredible patience can be measured by all the years she has waited for her first child — timing everything (as royal wives usually have to) in order to fit in with national events.
Also, Kate has had to make other compromises. Few things can be worse for an expectant mother than to move house while heavily pregnant, and that will be her fate in April, when she and William move into the huge, 21-room apartment in Kensington Palace that used to be home to Princess Margaret.
Some felt William might have liked to have taken his wife to live in his mother Princess Diana’s old apartment, where he and Harry grew up, but the suite of rooms has long since been converted into offices for Prince Charles’s charities, as well as accommodation for military figures.
‘Kate was never keen on that idea — too many ghosts, she thought,’ says a family friend. ‘And William knew she was right.’
