Kate Middleton Baby: How Will We Know When It’s Arrived?
Kate Middleton's baby is thought to be due sometime next week – but she could go into labour any day now. Find out how the world will be informed of the royal baby's arrival
Kate Middleton has got the whole world waiting with bated breath for the arrival of the royal heir.
While the due date is thought to be 13 July, the royal baby could arrive any day now – so how will we know when the newborn has arrived?
Photographers and TV crews began to set up camp outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington on Monday as we entered the month of the baby’s due date, so it’s unlikely that the Duchess of Cambridge’s arrival at the hospital will go unnoticed, unless she is somehow smuggled in.
When the baby is born, a medical official will emerge from the hospital with a signed document confirming the baby’s healthy arrival and the sex. The document will then be driven by a car to Buckingham Palace, where in line with royal tradition, it will be posted on a golden easel for the general public to see.
An announcement about the birth won’t be made until the Queen has been informed. A tweet will then be sent via the Clarence House Twitter account to announce the safe arrival of the little one tot he world.
