According to Town and Country, a new page was added to the royal website to cater for Prince William and Duchess Kate’s third child. The baby is expected sometime in April 2018.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's third child’s preparations are underway. The child’s parents launched their baby's internet presence recently.

Currently, the page whose link is royal.uk/baby; provides limited information. There’s just an official tweet confirming Kate's pregnancy.

It also features the following text: ‘Updates will be posted on this page and on @KensingtonRoyal's Twitter account as they become available.’ The page will likely be updated once the Duchess of Cambridge goes into labor.

It will probably have more updates again when the baby is born. Things like the baby’s sex and name are expected to be announced on the page as well.

It was previously rumored that Kate was considering a home birth. But recently it was reported that she would be delivering her third child in the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Paddington Hospital in London.

This is the same hospital where both Prince George and Princess Charlotte were born. Whether the child is male or female, it will be fifth in line to the throne.

Her husband, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, is second in line to become King of the United Kingdom and 15 other Commonwealth realms.

This makes Kate a likely future queen consort. Kate grew up in Chapel Row, a village near Newbury, Berkshire, England.

She studied art history in Scotland at the University of St Andrews, where she met William in 2001. Their engagement was announced in November 2010 before they married on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey.

The Duke and Duchess's children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, are third and fourth in the line of succession respectively. Kate’s impact on British and American fashion has been called the "Kate Middleton effect" in the media.

In 2012 and 2013, she was selected as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" by Time magazine.
