It seems as though everyone in the universe is sitting on pins and needles anxiously awaiting the arrival of royal baby number three! Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to have their baby any day now. Since the announcement of the birth, rumors have been swirling about the gender, name, and due date.
While the predicted date of birth was originally April 23, St. George’s Day, many speculate that since Kate has already gone on maternity leave, the baby is on it’s way much sooner than planned.
Even St. Mary’s Hospital is gearing up for the imminent arrival of the sweet little blessing by freshening up the paint outside the Lindo Wing. This area is where she is set to give birth and where she and Prince William will likely introduce the little one to the world.
I can only imagine the great excitement that Prince George and Princess Charlotte feel now that the due date is closing in. I’m sure their curious little minds are quizzing Mom and Dad, wanting to know every little detail about their sibling.
Since the happy couple has yet to reveal the gender of the baby, one thing has been confirmed: the official title. If the baby is a boy, he will be His Royal Highness Prince (Name) of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. If the baby is a girl, her title will be Her Royal Highness Princess (Name) of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Simple enough, right? Not hardly. This will technically be his or her official title, but it isn’t what he or she will be called. Since Mom and Dad are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the little one will by His or Her Highness (Name) of Cambridge.
There is a lot weighing on the shoulders of this unborn child. He or she will come into the world being fifth in line to the British royal throne, bumping back Uncle Harry to sixth. We simply cannot wait to see just who this little one takes after. Will he or she have Mom’s dazzling smile and Dad’s kind eyes?
No matter the outcome, our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this exciting time.
