    Kate Middleton and Prince William are happily married with a baby on the way (any day now!), so it’s tough to imagine that back in 2007, the rock solid pair once split for several months.

    The biography Kate (U.K. publish date: July and U.S. publish date: October) by Marcia Moody, a former royal correspondent for OK! Magazine, offers an inside glimpse into the couple’s rocky period.

    According to Moody, trouble was first evident in March 2007 when Kate and William appeared distant and uncomfortable while attending the horse racing event Cheltenham Festival.

    Their tension was reportedly due to a number of reasons. USA Today reported that William wasn’t ready to commit (he famously remarked during a ski trip, "I don't want to get married until I'm at least 28 or maybe 30”) while a story published on the BBC reported that William’s career in the army, his

    As Kate Middleton's due date draws ever closer-and with it, of course, the joyous arrival of The Royal Baby!-we're getting absolutely giddy with anticipation. We can't wait to learn the gender of the family's new arrival-not to mention his or her name! (Any guesses, folks?)

    Throughout the months she's been expecting, the Duchess has worn everything from light, ultra-feminine pastels to eye-catching fit-and-flare coats to bold animal spots, making her baby bump perhaps the best-dressed one in history. And while she's certainly no stranger to stellar style, Kate's arguably looked better than ever before while with child; frankly, we're gonna miss those maternity looks!

    Before the Duchess delivers, click through to see every single look she's worn while pregnant. Stunning, right?

    One more way the Royal Baby is clearly a breed apart from anyone else on the planet? He or she already has a Wikipedia page. It's the first time a person has gotten a Wikipedia page before birth, according to the Daily Beast. Mind you, this comes after fairly popular Royal Baby Facebook and Twitter accounts.

    The Wiki is already full of details surrounding Middleton’s complicated first trimester,the speculation surrounding the gender, and the titles afforded to the future monarch. Of course, no Wikipedia page is complete without a mention of controversial moments … and yes, even before birth, the Royal Baby has one. The Wikipedia page makes note of the fact that the Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, is knitting a kangaroo in honor of the Royal Baby’s birth—despite her dissenting political views on the monarchy. 

    All that from a child still in the womb. Can you imagine how much Wiki real estate this person will require as an adult? We'll need to build a bigger Internet.

    Are Kate Middleton and Prince William having a boy? The odds are higher than ever, at least for gamblers. The British-based gaming company, Ladbrokes, has seen a surge in bets on a prince this past week. They estimate that 72% of all betters on the baby's sex have been opting for a boy, but only in the past seven days.

    That's a change from the popular bet throughout the year. Since Kate Middleton's pregnancy was announced in December, the majority of betters have been putting their money on a future princess. This week, however, things have inexplicably changed.

    “It’s been one-way traffic for a girl all year, but money talks, and the punters cash suggests a boy is back on the cards,” Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes stated in a press release on Wednesday. Meanwhile,William Hill, another British-based gaming company, currently quotes the odds of a male being 5/4, similar to Ladbrokes' 6/4 odds.
