Britain's Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are reportedly set to take a "romantic break" before their baby arrives.

The royals are expecting their first child, which is thought to be due around the middle of July.

Before they welcome their bundle of joy into the world, the couple are reportedly planning to enjoy some alone time in the French capital.

"William doesn't want Kate to travel far as she's close to their baby's due date in July," a source explained to British magazine Star.

"So he's decided on Paris for a romantic break away. They're hoping to go towards the end of next month, depending on how Kate feels."

It seems the pair have a whole itinerary planned for their trip.

As well as visiting "book stores" and Chanel, Catherine and William will make time for some sightseeing.

"They'll visit the Louvre, dine at the top of the Eiffel Tower and take a romantic cruise along the Seine," the insider continued.

"They'll also hit some low-key restaurants. William sees it as a golden opportunity for them both to relax ahead of the baby's arrival."

While the pair seem keen to treat themselves with meals out, Catherine is apparently hoping to educate her husband when it comes to cooking at home.

"Will's favourite meal is pasta, but Kate's a bit of a Nigella [Lawson, UK food writer] in the kitchen and hopes to teach him a few trickier dishes before the baby arrives, like a curry and a Sunday roast!" the source smiled.
