Kate Middleton could pop at any moment, but the royal family is prepared to stick to tradition no matter what.
But with a twist of course!
When the little bundle of joy is born at St. Mary’s hospital, a person from Kensington Palace will hand an envelope to a member of the royal family to take to Buckingham Palace.
Then, the same wooden sign that announced Prince William’s birth will be posted on a wooden easel at Buckingham Palace. At the same time, a digital announcement will be released, and the world will learn the baby’s sex, which the parents (apparently) won’t even know until it’s born!
Kate Middleton just cannot catch a break!
Her life is pretty much an open book, and now even her underwear is gossip fodder!
British lingerie designer Lorna Drew has outed the Duchess of Cambridge's penchant for lace-trimmed maternity knickers, going so far as to point out exactly which set Kate wears underneath all those pretty coats!
The powder blue satin "Alexa" bra and briefs (below) were sent to the royal mama-to-be by the designer herself, who received a sweet thank-you email in response!
Uh…we'll take any hints we can get!
The royals are keeping the gender of Prince William and Kate Middleton's first child pretty damn private - well, Prince Harry might not have done a very good job of that.
And while we thought they were having a little boy thanks to our fave Vegas romper, we think her latest ensemble might be a sign of what's to come!
Kate stepped out one more time for Queen Elizabeth's Trooping the Colour birthday ceremony which honors her birthday a couple months after the actual event, and boy did Kate look perfect in pink.
She might have just really liked the color or she might have thought it'd be nice to wear the color associated with her baby for her baby's great-grandmother!
Right? Or are we stretching this too far??
Either way, we can't wait to see the little bundle of joy Kate pops out soon!
It'll be the most perfect prince or princess out there!

With the royal baby's arrival JUST around the corner, Kate Middleton is doing everything she can to prepare for her big day!
But apparently she has one MAJOR concern that most women in her position face: The pain!!
Kate reportedly wants to have a natural birth, and she's so worried about the pain that she's been reading up on alternatives to relieve her stress, and one source says she may have found it:
Kate Middleton's royal touch was desperately needed at the christening of the Royal Princess ship in Southampton on Thursday morning.
The Duchess of Cambridge smashed a $2K bottle of Nebuchadnezzar champagne against the side of the cruise liner before being taken on a tour of the massive ship by Captain Tony Draper.
She's totes following in Princess Diana's footsteps — the late royal christened the first Royal Princess back in 1984!
Kate was classy as always in a dalmatian-print Hobbs coat, black Lock & Co. hat, black Episode pumps, and a cream Alexander McQueen clutch.
Soak it all in because this is Kate's last public appearance before the birth of the
world's most important baby royal bundle of joy!

Prince Philip was admitted to a hospital in London on Thursday because his abdominal region was acting up.
A statement from Buckingham Palace read:
Kate Middleton rightly treads a fine line between classy and trendy with her outfit choices.
She has the ever judgmental eyes of the world on her, so she can't just bust out a leopard-print cut-out gown for high tea with Her Majesty.
Roberto Cavalli probably wouldn't mind if she did, though! Especially if the gown in question was designed by his flesh-loving Italian hands.
The couturier recently admitted he wants the Duchess to get more provocative with her clothing, saying:
