The wait at the Lindo 8 hours after Kate admitted. No news yet. Diana was in labour here for 16 hours in '82 pic.twitter.com/GEEtT3buIC
Yes, but how long was Carole in labor with her children? She's the one with the biological link to Kate. I don't know if that matters or not.

Do you think the whole media coverage thing will also happen at a possible second pregnancy?

If the baby is born today there'll be a 41 gun salute at Green Park and a 62 gun salute at the Tower of London tomorrow afternoon#RoyalBaby

Ooh, hopefully Catherine won't be in labor too long. Can't wait for the little prince or princess to arrive!

Since regardless of the baby's gender, they will be monarch after William, and because it didn't specify gun salutes according to gender, let's assume that yes, they will be.

Every birth is different babies have their own time table. It doesn't matter about wills birth or Kate's the baby will come when it is good and ready barring any complications.

The press will be there whenever Kate has a baby that will not change.

At York Minister well-wishers shouted congratulations to Charles. He asked if they knew something he didn't. "It's triplets," joked one.

Jewish royal friends will have a special reason to toast the baby if it arrives today, the 22nd, which is Tu B'Av. This feast day is called the "happiest day on the calendar." It celebrates the restoration of the tribe of Benjamin and is a traditional day for weddings in Israel.

I guess HRH Baby C will arrive before my 23rd of July birthday--unless I lived in Australia, where I think it already the 23rd of July.

Out of curiosity what would they do if it was twins? I know it's not ( and that was one of the theories behind the real life "man in the iron mask" who was arrested under the name Eustache Dauger in 1669 or 1670 - he was King Louis XIV's identical twin brother hence the mask - anyway, way off the topic) what would they do?

Air conditioning

Does the Lindo wing or indeed any part of any hospital in London have air-conditioning? I seem to recall that hospitals in Paris don't have ac because they feel it would spread germs.

If it's twins, the heir is the first one out into the world. If a caesarian were performed, they say the doctor would be the "king maker" by choosing which baby comes out first, but I suppose even that way there would be an obvious one because of position--maybe.

Oh this is SUCH wonderful news to wake up to!!! I'm kind of glad she didn't have the baby yet - I want to be awake when she has it. Still hoping it is a girl, but either way will be wonderful.

I hope Kate has a safe, uneventful labour.

Me too. Although as it doesn't matter for the parents, it shouldn't bother us.
I wonder what if royal baby is born unhealthy, can it be an heir? I mean serious illnesses such Down syndrome or another genetic anomaly.

IF it were twins, the birth announcement would read, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a baby boy/girl at xx:xx pm weighing y.y kilograms and a baby boy/girl at xx:xx pm weighing y.y kilograms.

The first-born would be the heir and the second-born the spare.

But since the Palace announcement regarding her pregnancy earlier this year read "expecting a baby in July", it is highly unlikely that she will have twins.

If the baby doesn't arrive for my birthday, it will be awesome if he/she arrives for yours!

I keep hitting refresh on the all news sites waiting for an update....but the baby will come when he/she is ready.

I hope you have a great Birthday!

And thanks to all for the birthday greetings.....
