The much awaited royal baby has everyone on the watch as we move from April, the due date month, into May and still no sign of its arrival.
However a delay of a week or two after the due date is not uncommon and certainly no cause for concern.
The due date moved from the suggested mid-April to end of April with speculation that it may arrive on the Duke and Duchess’s fourth wedding anniversary, April 29. But alas, this date has come and gone so could the little royal share their birth day with Election Day, 7 May?
The Duke and Duchess insist that they do not know the sex of their second baby but this has not stopped the world from guessing. Rumours and speculation say that possible leaks have been made suggesting that they are awaiting a little princess. A boutique in Chelsea, London, where Kate is a regular shopper for George, reported that on her last visit she showed a ‘lot of interest’ in the girls section. Daily Mail reported that Annie Sloan, a top designer from Oxford, is believed to have recently supplied a few “decidedly feminine” paint samples to Anmer Hall, currently home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The bookies’ ten top spots for royal baby names are currently dominated by girls’ names. Amongst these little princess names are Elizabeth, Victoria and Alice. For a new price, the name James remains the most popular.
Meantime avid royal fans have reportedly been camping outside the Lindo Wing at the exclusive St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington hoping to catch a glimpse of Kate Middleton when she arrives to give birth. TV crews and reporters remain on standby to take up their place outside the chosen medical facility to bring the world the much awaited news of the arrival of a new prince or princess.
