From the very first day Prince William and Duchess Kate announced they were welcoming a baby, the world has been speculating every possible aspect about it


Now that she is about to give birth, people are getting more and more anxious. The first sign that her due date is very close was shown on April 9, 2018, reported People.

The St. Mary’s Hospital, located in Paddington, West London, which is the same medical center where Kate welcomed Prince George and Princess Charlotte, placed in temporary parking restrictions in front of its area.

That restriction, which also banned the media to be nearby, began on the aforementioned date and will be over on April 30, 2018. The signs didn’t clarify the reason for the restriction as they only wrote it was because of an ‘event.’


Even though any member of the Royal family has said anything about the exact due date – not even Kensington Palace officials – the source revealed that Kate will give birth on April 23.


They said so because something similar happened with her previous pregnancies. The hospital placed the ‘no parking’ signs more than two weeks before she gave birth.

Kate will be taken care inside the private Lindo Wing of the medical center by a team led by Dr. Guy Thorpe-Beenston and Dr. Alan Farthing, who were the same team leaders during Charlotte’s delivery.

When they welcome the baby, the first thing that is expected to be revealed is its gender, followed by the announcement of both of them departing the hospital along with pictures of the baby in their mother’s arms.

As they get home and enjoy the private moment for a while, they will issue a bulletin with the baby’s name.


It is not 100% sure that they will do that, but the source admitted they would repeat what they did with Charlotte, which means that the Kensington Palace’s Twitter account will be in charge of making most of the official statements.

They will only make announcements between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. U.K. time and after William and Kate inform Queen Elizabeth of other members of their families.
