Very sensible - it may well have been leaked before the announcement would have been posted at the Palace. They can still maintain the tradition of posting it on the easel.

On Twitter there was talk of a significant uptick in police presence.

Methinks habemus infantum.

Hmm. Either an announcement is imminent, or they're anticipating it coming some time during the night. Could go either way, I think.

To make it easy when the baby is born.

The Wikipedia entry on St Mary's list no reason why it's called Lindo wing.

The Lindo Wing, which was opened by the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, is named after Frank Charles Lindo, a businessman and board member of St Mary’s Hospital, who donated £111,500 to the hospital before his death in 1938.

^^^Generally, a wing is named after a benefactor who provided the funds to build it.

It's names after Frank Charles Lindo. The wing was originally meant for "patients of moderate means" who were too well off to be treated in a charity hospital but who could not actually afford private care.
So... mission accomplished?

Duplicate post, not sure why it posted twice.

Fingers crossed we'll have an announcement soon.

According to the Telegraph "A woman, who had been waiting outside the hospital for news of the royal baby, was rushed to hospital with suspected heat stroke."

She is alright now.

Is the Express a tabloid or a reputable paper?
