Kate Middleton is due SO SOON!
On top of the Duchess of Cambridge’s pronounced baby bump, it’s clear that the brunette royal is due soon, as her go-to hospital recently put up temporary parking restrictions. Squee!!!
According to reports, St. Mary’s Hospital in West London has placed “no parking” signs outside their facility. The temporary restrictions have been put up along South Wharf Road, suspending parking in the area between April 9 and April 30. Per the notices, parking has been suspended for an “event.” Supposedly, certain areas have already been blocked off for the media.
As St. Mary’s has been the birth place for Kate’s other children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, it’s clear that the medical center is well underway with its preparations for the latest royal arrival. In fact, for both George and Charlotte’s entrances into the world, St. Mary’s put up “no parking” signs two weeks before their respective births.
While Kensington Palace reps have yet to confirm Prince William‘s wife’s due date, they have shared that she’s due this month. Reports claim Kate is due on April 23. Although, if the tiny tot arrives on April 21, he or she will share a birthday with Queen Elizabeth II. Oh, and let’s not forget that William and Kate’s seventh wedding anniversary is on April 29.
Nonetheless, Kate and William have certainly perfected this whole routine. It’s said that the media has been barred from camping outside the lavish Lindo Wing, as they must wait for official word from the palace that Kate is en route to the hospital. Upon her arrival, Princess Kate will be tended to by Dr. Guy Thorpe-Beeston, Dr. Alan Farthing, and their medical team.
Once the Duke and Duchess’ third child is born, a statement will be issued about the little one’s sex, weight, and time of birth. Eventually, the twosome will confirm the child’s moniker. However be warned, if the royal baby is born at night, the palace won’t make any announcements until 9 a.m. UK time (4 a.m. ET).
The next time we hear from Kensington Palace about pregnant Kate, it is likely that she’ll be in labor. So be sure to stay tuned!!
