Royal baby watch: New signs London hospital preparing for delivery

Before the birth of the third child the 36-year-old Kate Middleton and 35-year-old Prince William left quite a bit, but bookmakers in Britain (and not only) are taking bets on the name of the baby.

From designer favourites like Alexander McQueen and Jenny Packham to maternity brands such as Séraphine, Middleton never put a fashionable foot wrong.

When is the new royal baby due?

Of course, the birth of the royal baby won't be the only exciting royal event this year.

Of course, any birth includes expected flexibility with the exact due date.

While Kensington Palace reps have yet to confirm Prince William's wife's due date, they have shared that she's due this month.

A spokesperson for the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, the body which oversees the hospital, confirmed to CTVNews.ca that barriers and parking signs had been installed outside this week.

Sophomore wing Riley Tufte leads the Bulldogs in goals (16), and freshman defenseman Scott Perunovich is atop in points (36). The Bulldogs , meanwhile, only return 10 who played that night, though only eight are expected to be in the lineup Thursday.

Consultant obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston and consultant gynaecologist Alan Farthing will be again involved after helping to deliver Kate's previous children.

Meanwhile, friends say Kate is making the most of her time with George and Charlotte ahead of the birth and trying to enjoy some downtime before her life gets even busier.

When Kate does finally give birth (has it really only been nine months?), the public will likely hear about it through social media, specifically from the active Twitter account of Kensington Palace. Although, if the tiny tot arrives on April 21, he or she will share a birthday with Queen Elizabeth II.

Prince William and Kate's third child will become the fifth in line to the throne after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

"Barriers have gone up outside the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington in preparation for the world's media, but won't be in use until the Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted in labor", she announced.

It will be all eyes on the Lindo Wing for the next few weeks then. Kensington Palace has revealed more details of Kate Middleton and Prince William's birth arrangements as they await the arrival of their third child.
