Here’s What We Know About Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Third Child
All eyes are focused on the United Kingdom. Millions of Royal Watchers are awaiting the arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton's latest child.
Baby Name Predictions
As royal baby excitement continues to build up, bets have been starting to find out about the identity of the royal couple's third child. United Kingdom bookies have revealed to People Magazine that if Kate Middleton gives birth to another girl, there is a robust 5-to-1 possibility that the names Alice and Mary might be incorporated into the child's name. Meanwhile, bookies have also noted that if Prince George is going to have a baby brother, the names Albert and Arthur, are tied at the top of the leaderboard with the odds set each at 12-to-1.
Announcing The Royal Baby
Fashion magazine Marie Claire has suggested that Prince William and Kate will announce the Royal Baby's arrival on social media. The magazine believes that Kensington Palace might post when the birth takes place. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have previously used Instagram to announce Princess Charlotte's arrival in 2015.
St. Mary's Update
The Royal Baby's upcoming arrival had roused interest when St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, West London posted signs surrounding the Lindo Wing. The signs stated to drivers that there is absolutely no parking in that area as it is 'reserved' for an event that is scheduled to take place anytime between April 9 and April 30. In addition, when it is time for the Duchess to give birth to their third child, there will be a birthing team of 23 specialists assisting the couple. The couple has previous experience using the Lindo Wing as their birthing center, as Kate gave birth to both Prince George in 2013 and Princess Charlotte in 2015. Also, Princess Diana gave birth to both Prince William and Prince Harry at the location.
Still 'In The Dark'
As of publication, both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have no idea regarding their baby's gender. Due to the couple not knowing if they are going to have another boy or girl has hampered final preparations. However, the couple does know the proper titles that Prince George and Princess Charlotte's little sibling will receive. The child's Royal Title is expected to be His/Her Royal Highness Prince/Princess of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
The soon-to-be-born baby is also expected to stand behind big sister Princess Charlotte in the throne succession line. Their older brother, Prince George, their father, Prince William, and their grandfather, Prince Charles, are ahead of them.
