Royal Birth Any Day Now: What is Kate Middleton’s Due Date?
Kate Middleton has a lot of pressure on her at the moment. Not only is she expected to look poised and radiate perfection at all times, but the married monarch is going to give birth to the future king or queen of England any day now. Middleton’s due date is uncertain, but most speculate that it is this week. Paparazzi and reporters are camped out at St. Mary’s Hospital, where Kate will give birth at anytime.
While we’ve been praising Kate’s maternity fashion for months, mums in England are praising her natural childbirth decision. Being an active person and health fanatic, Kate will want to do what is best for her child. Unless the doctors insist, Kate will give birth to her first child the old fashioned way. No drugs for this mummy-to-be.
What Happens When Kate Middleton Goes Into Labor?
When Kate goes into labor, she will take a six-minute drive from Kensington Palace to St. Mary’s. William is currently stationed in Whales for work, and he’s been away from Kate much of her nine months.
Should he be in Anglesey or at his charity polo match when Kate goes into labor, a helicopter is waiting for him to leave at a moment’s notice. The announcement that Kate has gone into labor will only happen after she has made it safely inside the hospital. Kate’s mom Carol Middleton and sister Pippa are expected to be at the hospital with her.
When Will We Know About The Royal Baby?
The first person to hear of the birth will be Queen Elizabeth. Her grandson William will call her personally to share the blessed news. From there, a signed medical announcement will be driven to Buckingham Palace, a ride at about 10 minutes that the entire world will be watching. Just like the baby’s father, a birth announcement will be posted at the gates of the palace. On it, the world will finally learn what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had.
What Happens After The Royal Birth?
A 41-gun salute will welcome in the new generation of royals. The final reveal of their baby will take place on the steps of St Mary’s Hospital, the same as Princess Diana and Prince Charles. The royal couple will most likely take their baby home to Kensington Palace, where William spent his early years. William and Kate are certain to raise their child, and future children, as normally as possible. They want to give their children a normal life before they are thrust into the spotlight.
