I'm sure the Middleton's will be nearby in London nervously awaiting the news.

They said mid July But really it could be any day now! Most Royal Babies are born early before their Due Date, I actually wouldn't be surprise if they said Mid July Intentionally to throw the media off guard a little bit. But the media will be camped outside weeks in advance anyway.

I read somewhere that Kate baby Shower is today. Can anyone confirm that!?

She isn't having a baby shower, that was just some media nonsense.

I'd be amazed if the Duchess had a 'baby Shower'... which is regarded as a 'suspect' American habit in this country.

If Catherine had a baby shower, we probably wouldn't know anything about it. Just like we didn't get any info about her hen night.

Who regards it as a suspect American habit? It's a very common thing to do nowadays and it's a wonderful way to celebrate an upcoming birth.

Exactly! I can see Catherine having one frankly.

Tomorrow is William 31st Birthday, We have been talking about all the other birthday but it would be cool if the Baby was born on William Birthday. Not saying Catherine will have tomorrow (I guess you really don't know) But it would pretty cool/nice and for William it would be pretty special I am sure.

Showers are indeed common, but are still considered quite an American event and not generally the done thing except maybe for footballers wives and that lot.

That was a really interesting article, thanks. I did notice how it attributed the hospital birth to Diana, without note of the fact that the children of the Duke of Gloucester, the Princess Royal, and Prince Michael were all born at St. Mary's.

LOL, I think the media just like highlighting everything Charles & Diana when it comes down to William & Catherine and Harry. Prepare to hear even more when the baby is born and even beyond.

To be fair - she speaks to births of heirs and goes back to the 14th century.

Yup, and she focused on the birth of heirs, which is why it make sense to talk about Diana's children rather than Anne's children or the Gloucesters.
