Kate: 'Difficult' to choose name for baby due mid-July

The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed her baby is due in mid-July, and that she and William have agreed upon a shortlist of names.

Kate, who is six months pregnant, opened up about how excited she is about becoming a mother during a visit to a homeless shelter in Glasgow.

She also revealed she has taken up knitting ahead of the birth, and that she planned to go on maternity leave from her Royal duties in June.

When asked whether she had decided on what to call her baby, and when it was due, she said:

It's around mid-July but apparently babies have their own agenda...We have a shortlist for both (boy and girl) but it's very difficult....My friends keep texting me names.
