They're only posting during daytime hours basically - the pomp to it isn't fun when it's 3AM and the guns go off.

@HelloMag is reporting that Carole and Pippa are not, in fact, at the hospital already. #RoyalBaby

The announcement will leave the front door of the hospital wing [where the world press is] and will travel by car to the palace, so the press has no chance of missing it. I'm pretty sure every news station has a second presenter/camera at the palace waiting for the announcement to come up

Interesting how people tell the pollsters they don't care but then you see pictures like this or the one on The Sun website, It certainly isn't a majority of London, but those who care, care a lot.

Ok the announcement will be made in the morning. But what about the "sign"? Will the guy leaving hospital for palace with notice stay till the morning?
It will be bad if we come to know that birth has occured but donno what baby it is..

Oh, thank you! I'll keep watching the hospital door footage then.

Does anyone have any idea how much time will pass between the baby being born and the formal announcement being brought to Buckingham Palace?
When I had my first, my husband and I wanted to have one/one and a half hour for privacy (the three of us alone) to know each other.
My daughter does that same sugestion to her patients.
A lot of them like it that way.
So even when the child is born it could take a few hours before we outsiders know

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 13m
We'll know a baby has been born when one of Kate's officials emerges from the Lindo Wing with a medical bulletin in their hands #RoyalBaby

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 6m
The medical bulletin will be carried from the Lindo Wing to Buck Palace by Ed Perkins -- William and Kate's Press Secretary. #RoyalBaby
Expand

Mark Stewart ‏@RegalEyes 4m
#BabyCambridge's birth will be confirmed when a press officer emerges with birth announcement that will be transferred to Buckingham Palace

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt 2m
And for those who have queried, the medical bulletin will be on a foolscap sheet of paper rather than A4. #RoyalBaby

Mark Stewart ‏@RegalEyes 1m
#BabyCambridge announcement will then be displayed on the same easel that bore news of Prince William's birth in forecourt of Buck Palace

Mark Stewart ‏@RegalEyes 2m
@WhatKateWore Press Officer is expected to leave main entrance and get into a waiting car to travel to BP once the baby has been born.

The sign is the announcement. The notice on the easel at BP is how they're planning on announcing the birth, and they've said they'll only be doing that between 8AM and 10:30PM.

If the baby is born after 10:30PM we won't find out until the next morning.

i think they will only release press notes until 10:30pm. however, i very much doubt the labour will extend until the night, seeing she was admitted early in the morning.

I imagine William in there holding Catherine's hand (she breaking his hand) and just helping her get through this.

I think we will survive until the announcement.

If I am understanding protocol, the person carrying the official message must do so between 8:00 am and 10:30 pm. This is of course the protocol for the official announcement. As said above, William has a cell phone.

They have to tell the Queen first and the Queen isn't being woken up. That is why there is no announcement after 10:30 PM UK time.
