Royal Household Prepared for Birth
Britain’s Royal household is prepared for the Duchess of Cambridge to go into labour.
The 33-year-old royal – who is expecting her second child with her husband Prince William – is said to have been staying with her hubby at their residence in Kensington Palace since Sunday (19.04.15) with their bags packed and ready to go to the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s hospital at a moment’s notice.
Prince William, 32, recently ended his Air Ambulance helicopter pilot training early and returned to London to start his paternity leave and be close to the brunette beauty incase she goes into labour.
Meanwhile, the Duchess has been splitting her time between visiting her parents Michael and Carole Middleton in Bucklebury, Berkshire and the family’s country residence, Amner Hall, in Norfolk.
Both the Royal Berkshire hospital in Reading and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, have been put on standby in case the Duchess should go into labour, but it appears royal fans are certain the Duchess will give birth in the Lindo Wing – where the couple welcomed their son Prince George in July 2013 – and have already started to gather outside.
One crowd member, Margaret, told HELLO! magazine: “I am very excited, over the moon. I am mostly going to be here until it all happens. I wake up every night to put the TV on to check if anything has happened.”
