Preparations are well under way for Kate Middleton’s baby arrival.

St. Mary’s Hospital, in Paddington, West London where Kate and Prince William will welcome their third child have been busy assigning parking restrictions for the big day.

According to People “The notices are up in South Wharf Road, suspending parking from April 9 to April 30 for an ‘event’.”

The couple are already parents to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

People also reported that it is unlikely that the media will be able to stand in the place opposite the famous door of the Lindo Wing, until Kensington Palace has confirmed that Kate is in labour.

Only when Kate has arrived to the hospital with Prince Harry will photographers, reporters and television crews be able to set up.


It has also been reported that “If the birth happens in the middle of the night, Kensington Palace will not make any announcement before 9 a.m. U.K. time (4 a.m. EST).”

“The latest they expect to make an announcement would be 10 p.m. (5 p.m. EST). The announcement would only be made when the William and Kate have informed the Queen Elizabeth and other members of their families.”

After the birth Kensington Palace will reveal the baby’s gender, weight and time of birth are.

According to People “An official notice will then be posted on an easel in the Buckingham Palace forecourt.”

The Royal family will return to Apartment 1A of Kensington Palace, after posing for pictures on the famous steps, and will then issue a bulletin with the baby’s name.
