Remember how huge, tired and uncomfortable you were right before you gave birth? Imagine having the eyes of the world on you at that time, and you might get a clue about how Kate may be feeling right now. Still, she's a sport, same as always, according to an exclusive report from US Weekly magazine about the dwindling days of her pregnancy.

"Catherine and William are very much looking forward to the arrival of their son or daughter," said a palace aide. "It's a very exciting time for the couple and their families."

With her due date of July 11 looming large, Kate is remaining comfortably nestled in Kensington Palace. She “has been sensible and stayed in London," says the source.

Though she recently spent a spell in Anglesey, Wales, where Prince William is stationed as a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue pilot, the Duchess of Cambridge is reported to have been relieved not to have gone into labor early there. Had that happened, she would have boarded a 70-minute flight to St. Mary’s Hospital in London.

William is said to be in touch as much as possible, visiting her at the palace between shifts. Of course, his duties keep him away much of the time, but there is always another family member close by Kate. Her sister Pippa, and mother Carole, have frequently visited her, says the source: "Everyone is helping out."

Kate plans to give birth naturally, barring any unforeseen complications. Though she has stayed busy throughout the months with activities like yoga, brisk morning walks, and knitting projects, she is said to be increasingly nervous, yet excited. No one, from a queen to a commoner, could blame her for that!
