Royal Baby Watch! How We Will Know When Kate Goes Into Labor
The royal baby is due any day now and it won't take a press release to tell whether or not Kate Middleton has gone into labor… although there most certainly will be one.
Hollywood Life reports that once St. Mary's Hospital is notified that the Duchess of Cambridge is in labor and en route, an armed officer will be stationed on the steps of the hospital. The officer's appearance will be the first signal to the horde of media outside that the little prince or princess is on the way.
The guard is expected to escort Kate into the Lindo Wing of the medical facility through one of three side doors. The mom-to-be is expected to be safely inside before the press release is sent.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge realize there will be vast interest in the baby,” a palace spokesman told Us Weekly. “This is a time of national celebration.”
Kate and Prince William's little one is reportedly due July 13.
