T-minus 8 days! Kate Middleton's official due date is July 11 — and as the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge (along with the rest of the world) awaits the arrival of her little monarch, she's "feeling great," a family source tells Us Weekly. Indeed, pregnancy, and even that world-famous baby bump, seems to suit Prince Willam's wife of 2 years. "She's full of energy and really rather used to the bump!" the source adds.

That said, the mother of England's future King or Queen is also dealing with jitters. "Naturally she is a little nervous about the big day, what new mum wouldn't be?" points out the source. (Indeed, earlier this week, media have already set up camp outside St. Mary's Hospital in London, where Middleton plans to give birth inside the Lindo Wing.)

On her to-do list before the royal birth-date is putting the final touches on the redecoration project for couple's new, 20-room flat in Kensington Palace, where they'll move in the fall. "She's still busy, making sure she's done as much as possible for the new house before the baby is born," the insider reveals. "Once the baby is here, she won't have time for anything else!"

"Everything is great," assures the source. "She's healthy, the baby is healthy."
