The arrangements are officially in place for Kate Middleton and Prince William's soon-to-be-born third child. With the impending due date happening later this month, the newest member of British royalty will be born in St. Mary's Hospital in London, in the same wing where Harry and Middleton's first two children, Prince George (4) and Princess Charlotte (2), were born. This new family information was revealed by the Kensington Palace earlier this week.
CNN reported on the updates. Additionally, it was revealed the medical team will be led by Alan Farthing and Guy Thorpe-Beeston. Farthing and Thorpe-Beeston were also on hand to deliver Princess Charlotte. Since this is Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child, they know that their births get a little more notice than your typical child delivery. That's why barriers and parking restrictions are now currently set in place outside the private Lindo Wing for whenever the baby arrives. This is also set in place for whenever the baby is shown to the public for the first time.
The actual due date of the baby is not known by the public, though it has been known for some time that the child is set to arrive in April. Additionally, the baby's sex is also a mystery at the moment, as the royal couple decided to wait until the baby is born to discover whether it's a boy or a girl. This, of course, sparked speculation from both lines of thinking. There are gamblers all around the world who believe the baby will be a girl and that she'll be named Princess Mary. There are also speculators who believe it's a baby boy, based on hints seemingly left by Kate Middleton herself. Of course, we'll know the actual sex of the child in the weeks to come. Although, depending on how things shape up, some people could be losing lots of money soon.
There is a lot of excitement going on in the Royal Family at the present moment. In addition to Kate Middleton's forthcoming new child, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also set to marry next month on May 19th. It will take place in St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. It will also be televised live, just in case you don't get the invite. We're still waiting for our invitations to arrive in the mail as well. Meghan Markle isn't a member of the royal family yet, but she's already adopting from her eventual sister-in-law, as Markle has been showcasing Middleton's signature Dutchess Slant.
We'll obviously keep you posted on any additional updates that arrive pertaining to the newest member of Kate Middleton and Prince Harry's family. Stay tuned for more info.
