While some people like to prepare for every possible scenario possible, there are still people who like a little more variety and surprise.


That seems to be the case with Kate Middleton and Prince William, as they're both a surprise when it comes to their next child.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to give birth their third baby this month, and preparations are being made at the hospital where Middleton is due.

According to Express, the Royal couple chose not to be told if they are having a boy or a girl until the baby is delivered.

This would not be the first time, as the couple also opted to not ask the gender of their babies during Kate’s previous pregnancies.

Authorities suspended parking outside the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London, where Prince George and Princess Charlotte were also born.


They also set crowd barriers in place on Monday, April 9, 2018, in the street opposite the hospital’s entrance in order to accommodate media and members of the public who will be waiting to welcome the newborn.

A gigantic staff, with more than 20 experts from Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, which runs St Mary’s, are already waiting to work or be on call for the big moment.

Consultant obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston and consultant gynecologist Alan Farthing, who helped Kate deliver her previous children, will be a key part of the team.

Bookies are already betting on both the sex and the name of the new royal baby, with most believing that Middleton will have another girl.

Although Kensington Palace didn't reveal the day Kate’s baby is due, it is thought the new prince, or princess, will be born in the second half of the month.
