It's amazing how invested in their lives we ordinary folk become. I remember staying up all night in order to watch their wedding, as it was starting quite early in the morning for me due to the time difference. When their engagement was announced, I remember thinking...well damn, it's about time. Now we're all sitting around waiting for news she's been brought to the hospital to give birth, then we'll all be sitting here waiting for pictures and then eventually, a name. It's utterly fascinating.

I'm a little surprised actually that there weren't any Waity Katy headlines in the last week.

I I bet Catherine goes into the hospital at night time when it dark and not any (or not many anyway) media/press and peoples standing around. Although She will probably go in a secret entrance where there no media in not in the Lino wing entrance, That is my guess anyway.

I also read that a hospital in bucklebury is on standby just in case...

I am so glad the baby wasn't born on the 12th of July as the riots in Belfast were bad enough without some of those dreadful orangemen highjacking the royal birth to cause even more problems. Since then I havn't cared when the birth date would be but I am now being a bit greedy and hoping it won't be today either as I liked Diana and wouldn't want her grandchild born on Camilla's birthday.

will kate really enter the hospital through the lindo wing that all the press is guarding? really? it seems highly unlikely to me. there must be another entrance that she would use, a "back door" one. i'm quite confused - are we really (or rather, are they really thinking we are) going to see her entering through those doors only to be filmed during those moments of anxiety of delivering your first baby?

The hospital isn't in Bucklebury. That's hard to picture!
The Royal Berkshire Hospital is in Reading.

Tomorrow (18th) is Nelson Mandela's 95th birthday. Since Mandela day is celebrated worldwide I think it would be fantastic if the little one shares the same birthday. For myself, I am extremely excited!!!

It is? Never heard of Mandela day here in the US. Then again, the company I work for is rather stingy with the holidays we get off during the year (they do make up for it around Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year's though).

The press reported (for whatever that's worth) a week or so ago that she had slipped in and out for a check through another entrance, I assume that is the entrance she'll use when the time arrives. I suppose the press are waiting for word that she is in fact in labor and inside the hospital so they can do their 'in front of the hospital' shots, perhaps the official who carries the announcement of the birth to be placed on the tripod @ BP will exit those front doors?
It would be amusing if she quietly delivered near her parent's home - imagine the stampede as reporters decamped London and headed for Reading.
I was so hoping for a birth before this coming Saturday, as my niece is currently studying in London, but she is due to return to California next Saturday, and it would be nice if she could see all the hoopla first hand.

Hold on Catherine for another day. I want the baby's birthday to coincidence with Benedict Cumberbatch's. And have a boy as beautiful, talented and nice as this man and a prince for my (as yet not even planned!) grand-daughter to fangirl over!!!

I don't believe we celebrate Nelson Mandela's birthday here in Denmark either, but I agree that Baby Cambridge would get to share birthday with a wonderful person if he/she is born tomorrow (he/she would also be born on the day of the prime stage of Tour de France ).

According to wiki, Nelson Mandella day was made an International holiday by the UN in 2009, as a call to action for people to strive to make changes. In Canada, I had never heard of it before.

That is my guess!
Looks like July 17th is almost out! I was so excited when I saw on twitter that a helicopter had been seen landing at Kensington but oh well...

I shall move my guess to July 18th

It looks like my nephew (who has his birthday tommorow) might just share his birthday with the future King/Queen!
