There Are Parking Restrictions Outside Kate's Hospital AKA Royal Baby Soon

Kate Middleton pregnant with third child

Kate Middleton pregnant with third child

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.

Middleton is now pregnant with her third child, as she and husband Prince William are already parents to son Prince George and daughter Princess Charlotte.

There had been rumours that Kate wanted to give birth to her third child at home.

A legislative act that was passed five years ago is the reason why Princess Charlotte will remain as the fourth successor, behind her grandfather Prince Charles, her dad Prince William and older brother Prince George, 4.

Preparations started getting underway this morning as St Mary's Hospital sealed off the road leading to the Lindo Wing where Kate will give birth.

According to Sky News, barriers have been set up on the street outside the hospital to accommodate television crews and photographers.

October 10 - Kate, showing a slight baby bump, makes her first public appearance since her pregnancy was announced as she attends a Buckingham Palace reception honouring mental health campaigners.

It was also confirmed Monday that Middleton and Prince William, 35, have chosen not to find out whether they're having a boy or a girl. The announcement would only be made when William and Kate have informed Queen Elizabeth and other members of their families.

Inside the private Lindo Wing of the publicly funded National Health Service hospital, the expectant mom will be cared for by a team led by Dr. Guy Thorpe-Beeston and Dr. Alan Farthing.

We've got a LOT of royal-related excitement coming for us this year. The dress code for Harry and Meghan's wedding has been revealed and the instructions mean that the wife of Prince William will HAVE to wear one particular item - a hat! Her birth dominated the news agenda in the United Kingdom and hit the headlines around the world.

And speculation has been rife that the baby could be due on St. George's day (23rd April).
