Thanks for the info. Perhaps they'll announce it on the day. I don't think they'll be like Denmark where you find out the baby's names at it's christening!

Thanks.
I don't know about a link to the palace gates ( I thought she was staying at her parents?) but here's the DM's live feed of the hospital.

Just scroll down for it.

Unless they've named the baby already (which I personally think is odd, naming children before they're born), I doubt we'll have the name today. They undoubtedly wont do as our RF in Denmark, because that's not the tradition, but I do think they'll wait a couple of days. You know, look at the baby and see if it looks like a *name* or a *name*.

Yes, I know the Cambridges aren't thinking about me...but still its pretty exciting. All my friends are texting me to wish me a Happy Birthday and they know I follow the royals...so they are like...hopefully a royal baby born on your day because honestly, the poor thing can be in labor for hours and it might happen on the 23rd.

My thoughts and prayers are for a safe delivery.
So happy birthday to you (and potentially the Royal Baby as well), but I am confident, it will be delivered today
Bye Bine

Looking at Wiliam's photos I can easily imagine him with a name Arthur or George. It is hard to say if a name fits a baby when it is only few hours of old.

I just happened to wake up and check my phone for news and, lo and behold, today is the day! I wasn't supposed to get up for another couple of hours, but this is too exciting to miss.

I certainly wish the Duchess a safe delivery - I'm so excited for William and Kate. (And happy birthday to Zonk!)

But I'm sure that Charles and Diana thought he looked like a William I was supposed to be a Robin, but then I came out and looked nothing like a Robin and my mum decided to go with Zelia because she thought I looked more like a Zelia than a Robin.

Is that so common to choose the name after having seen the baby? All my friends knew how their little one would be called before the birth or had a set of two names, one for a boy and one for a girl.

When my brother was born my mother tried to convince my dad that he looked like a Harold. My brother still says how relieved he is that she didn't win that one.

Sometimes parents choose only middle names before the birth. Or make a list of potential names for both genders.
