All you need to know about the royal baby

Although this baby will only be fifth in line, the popularity of William, Kate, George and Charlotte across the globe means the arrival of the newest member of the Windsors will be high-profile once again.

The suspended parking notices will run from today until April 30, so it's just a waiting game from here.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first two children, Prince George in July 2013 and Princess Charlotte in May 2016 were also born at the same location.

Royal correspondent at HELLO! and Royal expert Emily Nash, tweeted that the barriers had gone up outside the private wing where the Duchess is due to give birth.

Crowd barriers have also been erected, presumably in preparation for the crowds of reporters, photographers and well-wishers that will inevitably gather when the expectant mum goes into labour.

As for the baby's gender, the palace will not announce that news until after the child is born, per tradition. Kate's precise due date has not been announced, although Kensington Palace confirmed that William and Kate's third child is expected in April.

The team will be overseen by Alan Farthing, the Queen's surgeon-gynaecologist, and Guy Thorpe-Beeston, surgeon-gynaecologist to the royal household, who both helped to deliver George and Charlotte. Her birth dominated the news agenda in the United Kingdom and hit the headlines around the world.

Prince George starts school - but Kate is too poorly to accompany him to the school gates, with William taking the young prince on his first day.

William made his public debut with the Prince and Princess of Wales outside the hospital, wrapped in a white blanket and carried in Diana's arms, with Charles by her side.

"Royal aides and St Mary's Hospital have worked hard to ensure there is minimal disruption to staff and patients, so don't expect to see regular reporting/updates from the Lindo Wing until the time comes".

The due date of the baby, who will be Queen Elizabeth's sixth great-grandchild, has not been revealed.
