Kate Middleton and Prince William aren’t due to welcome their first child until mid-July, but thanks to some excellent forward planning we already know when we’ll see the baby royal for the first time.
Yeah - take that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Kate is due to give birth at St. Mary’s hospital in west London, and if all goes according to plan the world will get it’s first greatly anticipated look at the little one on the steps of the hospital.
Which is just how the world met William.
William will attend the birth, and in the event that he is on duty as a rescue pilot in Wales he will be flown or driven to Kate’s side,
“Between now and then he is on and off shift and every attempt will be made to get him there,” a royal source has said reports People.
The Queen, Prince Charles and the Middleton’s will be the first to be told the sex of the baby – which has been kept a secret. We’re guessing like a lot of parents-to-be Wills and Kate like surprises.
After that the public will be informed of the arrival of the new royal, and Kate and William are mixing royal traditions woth social media.
Royal staff will place an announcement signed by Kate’s medical team announcing the birth on to wooden easel outside of Buckingham Palace. It’s the same easel that announced William’s birth.
An announcement will then go out on social media – so anyone who’s not walking past Buckingham Palace will know what’s going on too.
Apparently, we should also all keep our eyes open for someone from Kensington Palace’s staff leaving the hospital with an envelope…
Or alternatively just keep an eye on here – we’ll bring you the news as soon as it’s in.
