Any day now there will be another royal baby. Prince William and Kate Middleton are preparing for the arrival of baby number three. In doing so, Kensington Palace has just announced where the little bundle of joy will be born.
The third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be born at St. Mary's Hospital in London later this month. This location is really not a surprise, as not only were Prince George and Princess Charlotte both born there, but their dad Prince William was, as well.
According to CNN, preparations for the new royal baby are already underway at the hospital. The medical team, which is going to be led by Alan Farthing and Guy Thorpe-Beeston is already on call and ready to go at a moment's notice.
Private barriers and parking restrictions were being put in place on Monday outside the Lindo Wing where the little one will be born. The closed off section will be where all of the media are stationed when the new baby is brought out for his or her first official public viewing.
Although the official announcement has now been made, there had already been speculation the new heir would be born at St. Mary’s because of the royal family’s history with the hospital. Arthur Edwards, royal photographer at the British Sun newspaper, recently shared a photograph on social media of freshly painted railings outside the Lindo Wing.

Prince William and Kate Middleton have not shared with the public when her due date is, and they kept the date mum with their other two children, as well. They have also not revealed the sex of their third child, but that is because the royal couple does not know. Yes, apparently they went the old fashioned route and are waiting to find out until the child is born. It kind of makes us love them even more.
Royal baby watch is in full swing, as everyone is on high alerting waiting for the new addition to the family to be born. Whenever the little bundle of joy arrives, he or she will hopefully be here just in time for the wedding of Uncle Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
