When Kate was pregnant with George, she gave birth 10-and-a-half hours after she was admitted to hospital. However, she gave birth to Charlotte only two hours and 34 minutes after being admitted at the Lindo Wing.
It is expected that Kate gives birth today – as it was reported – the royal baby will be born on patriotic St George’s Day.
William and Kate’s third child will be fifth in line to the throne. The baby will bump Prince Harry into sixth place. The baby’s title will be HRH Prince or Princess of Cambridge.
Kate Middleton is being cared at the same hospital where she gave birth to George and Charlotte. It is expected that the little ones, George and Charlotte, will visit their mom and the baby at the hospital. When Charlotte was born, George went to visit her together with Prince William.
Even though there were a lot of rumor that Kate has decided for a home birth, she eventually opted to return to the London hospital. The couple still doesn’t know the gender of the baby. They have followed this pattern for all three pregnancies.
Kate’s family have many things to celebrate. It was reported that Pippa Middleton, is expecting her first child with husband James Matthews.
After the news of the birth will be announced on the official Kensington Palace Twitter and Instagram accounts, a bulletin notice declaring the birth will go on display on an easel in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.
Most likely Kate will take an extended period off to recover and nurse the baby. However, it is expected to attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding on May 19.
