Kate Middleton's April due date is upon us and official preparations are now underway for the arrival of the third royal baby, as St Mary’s Hospital seals off the road leading to the Lindo Wing where the 36-year-old will give birth.
Now that she's officially on maternity leave, royal watchers are looking forward to the originally reported April 23 due date to see her again, but she could give birth even sooner. At least, if her hospital is any indication.
Kate and Prince William will introduce the royal baby on these steps, a royal tradition started with the birth of Prince William and continued with arrival of Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Leave it to the royals to think of every detail. People reports that before Prince George's birth, there were ladders across the road from the hospital for the three weeks before Middleton gave birth.
