Kensington Palace reveals new royal baby details

Prince William Kate Middleton

GETTYPrice William and Kate Middleton's third child is due to be born later this month

In 2012, when Kate Middleton was pregnant with Charlotte, she issued a Letters patent to parliament under the Great Seal of the Realm making an official ruling declaring all of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children would be named princes and princesses.

Kensington Palace first announced Middleton's pregnancy back in September 2017 and confirmed the Duchess of Cambridge was suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, severe morning sickness.

Meanwhile, friends say Kate is making the most of her time with George and Charlotte ahead of the birth and trying to enjoy some downtime before her life gets even busier.

Catalonia's Carles Puigdemont calls on Madrid to 'respect democracy'
Catalonia's former leader Carles Puigdemont is seen with supporters after a news conference in Berlin , Germany, April 7, 2018. Misuse of public funds carries a sentence of up to eight years in Spain , while a rebellion sentence can reach 30 years.

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.

It's not that surprising Kate and William would choose the Lindo Wing for their third child, having seen their first two children delivered there, but the parking restrictions and barriers seem to end rumours Kate had been considering a home birth.

Barriers have also been set up on the street outside the wing to accommodate press, camera crews and photographers who will assemble there once the Duchess has gone into labour.

People love the royals, people love babies - people will lose it over royal babies. Their father Prince William was also born at the same facility. However, it's unknown at this point if George and Charlotte will join their new sibling for the pics. "But the overwhelming support means we have a new favourite in the royal baby name market". William and Kate will want to inform the Queen and their families before sharing their news with the world.

Guy Thorpe-Beeston, surgeon gynaecologist to the Royal Household, and Alan Farthing, a consultant gynaecological surgeon, are expected to be present at the latest royal birth.

It will be all eyes on the Lindo Wing for the next few weeks then. He said both Prince William and Middleton have decided not to find out the gender of the baby in advance.
