Where, oh where, is the new Royal Baby? If you’re anxiously waiting for Kate Middleton to go into labor so you can watch a livecam of St. Mary’s hospital’s Lindo Wing, then just imagine how she feels. The Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly four days past her due date, which means she’s discussing the possibility of inducing labor with her doctors.
“The decision to induce is based on how she is feeling, her history and how the baby is managing — it’s a constant dialogue between the doctors, midwives and Kate,” pregnancy expert Zita West told People today.
Though the royal family never formally announced the official due date, a source told Us Weekly that senior members of the British Parliament were briefed with the due date of April 23. Regardless, Kate told well-wishers during her last public appearances before baby that she planned to give birth in “mid to late April.” That definitely puts her past her expected time frame!
Not that Kate and Wills should be too concerned about their second bundle of joy arriving on a delay — Prince George was a week late when he was born on July 22, 2013.
This time around, the birth announcement will be a bit more modern. As opposed to the traditional easel posting that was used to declare Prince George’s birth, the news will be posted on @KensingtonRoyal Twitter and Instagram accounts following a press release to journalists. We can’t wait!
