London – Speculation that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting an early birth has been squashed after it emerged that Prince William plans to play in a charity polo match on Sunday.

Mail Online reports that William will take part in the game at Cirencester Polo Club in Gloucestershire but he will not be accompanied by his heavily pregnant wife.

She will not want to leave her London “safety zone” so close to her due date.

Rumours were that the Duchess was due to give birth to the royal baby on Saturday July 13. But William’s decision to take part in the match suggests that he is now more confident that his first-born is not about to make an appearance this weekend.

However – as Kate herself has stated before – you can never be too sure when the baby will choose to make its appearance.
