Kate Middleton and Prince William are planning to have their baby very soon, and it will take place at the Lindo Wing hospital suite, just like with the birth of their first child. Ever since their second royal baby news was announced last year, there has been a lot of speculation on the baby gender as well as name prediction.
The Mirror.co.uk reports that the Lindo Wing maternity ward will be the place where the Duchess of Cambridge will give birth to her second son or first daughter. She will be looked after by the royal obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston and surgeon gynecologist Alan Farthing, who aided in Kate's birth of Prince George back in July 2013.
Like the birth of Prince George, there is expected to be a lot of reporters gathered around the Lindo Wing, but perhaps not as much as last time. The reason is the baby is fourth in line to the throne, with Prince Harry being at fifth place.
Just like with their first baby, Kate and William are not going to find out in advance whether or not they will have a boy or girl. So far, there have been a lot of popular baby name choices for the royal couple. The boy names include James, Arthur, Louis, and Philip, while the girl names include Alice, Elizabeth, Charlotte, and Victoria.
We have previously reported that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby girl, but Prince William and Kate Middleton have no idea what the sex of the baby is, according to E! News. Another source form OK magazine seems to show that Kate and William absolutely know what the gender of the baby is, and it will be a girl.
A palace insider even admits that Kate and William found out during the 21-week scan. This source stated that the baby could be named Diana, but only because they "felt they needed to go with something very traditional, like Elizabeth or Mary, or something that had a lot of meaning to them." Of course, the name of Diana is Prince William's late mother's name. According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, Queen Elizabeth does not want to allow that name. After all, Prince Charles divorced Diana after the affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles, which caused a lot of bad press for the royal family in the nineties.
Kate and William announced their second child back on September 8, 2014. It was an announcement that they had planned to make later, but they had to cancel an official engagement as Kate was suffering from severe morning sickness. They announced that they were expecting a baby in April, a due date that is rapidly approaching. According to Cosmopolitan, the royal couple has announced the actual baby due date, or at least the potential due date of April 25th. Of course, anyone who has ever had a child knows that unless you are planning to induce, it is extremely difficult to nail down the date of a baby's birth. Kate has since taken maternity leave as of March 27.
