Prince William and Kate Middleton’s baby still has at least four months to go until it makes its insanely anticipated appearance this summer. But that hasn’t stopped a South African geneticist from creating a set of images projecting what the Royal baby will look like.
Even though the Royal couple haven’t solicited the advice of Suretha Erasmus, a geneticist who co-owns a private practice in Johannesburg, South Africa, her work with families “to help them understand and make decisions about genetic conditions” apparently extends to peeking into the future, Mail Online reports.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby due date is July, so we can probably expect a lot more of this kind of thing between now and then. Such is the frenzied level of interest in the state of Kate’s pregnancy.
According to Erasmus, who put together a set of images showing the royal heir from early childhood right up to his or her adolescent years, a female heir will inherit Kate’s eyelashes and shapely brows but will get her blue eyes from her father (and, also her grandmother the late Princess Diana).
Allowing for both sets of genes inheritance other images also show the Royal child with red hair and dark hair, although weirdly all of them seem to have Prince William’s smile.
Meanwhile, back in Blighty, mother-to-be Kate has returned from her holiday in Mustique and is making sure she stays healthy. Seen out walking her dog Lupo, a black Cocker Spaniel, in London’s Hyde Park on Monday, the duchess looked extremely slender considering she’s over 20 weeks into her pregnancy, Hello magazine notes.
Clearly putting the upsetting business of being called a princess with a “plastic smile” behind her, Kate is pictured smiling in black skinny jeans as she strolled with a friend.
Along with Prince William —who recently rescued a stranded couple as part of his work as a helicopter pilot with the Royal Air Force, Kate currently lives in a cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace. The pair are due to to move into Apartment 1A of the palace this year once renovations have been completed and will reside in the opulent six-bedroom flat that the late Princess Margaret once occupied.
Last week Kate visited an all-female South London rehabilitation center of which she is a patron under her Action on Addiction charity. Asked by one of the residents if she was nervous about giving birth to her child, the 31-year-old said it would be “unnatural” if she wasn’t.
Are you keeping tabs on Kate’s baby bumb, and are you excited about the impending event?
