Royal baby due in July, palace says


The former Kate Middleton is due to give birth to her first baby in July, and her health is improving after a bout of severe morning sickness, palace officials said Monday.

The child of the Duchess of Cambridge, as she is formally known, and Prince William will be third in line to the British throne.

Bookmaker William Hill released odds on the name of the royal baby, with favorites including George, Victoria and Diana, all at 10-1.
