And adding that a baby is not bound to the due date, no one knows when the baby will come nor how long will be the birth. We can wake up tomorrow and learn through the same announcement HRH the Duchess of Cambridge has been rushed to the hospital where she has safely delivered an healthy baby.

Are there also any restrictions for other parents-to-be who want to give birth at Lindo Wing? Can other parents-to-be give birth at Lindo Wing during the wait on Royal Baby # 2?

I can't imagine the Lindo Wing turning away two weeks or more worth of business!

So I guess her due date is April 22nd. The parking restrictions start tomorrow (or today , depending on your timezone ) and end on April 30th , that's 2 weeks . So I think they went with 1 week before the date and one week after the date .

So we wait.

My cousin is a Nurse & she just shudders over Full Moons on Saturday Nights. The stories she can tell...

I think it would be lovely if the baby was born on HM's Birthday. Don't know of course, but it would be lovely. :)

My hubby is a retired EMT and there were many times when a day got overly crazy out there with emergency calls that he'd ask me if it was a full moon. Yeps... things get loony for sure eh?

I think it would be special also if the baby was born on the Queen's birth date as that would be something "just for him/her" that is shared with Great Granny that would last a lifetime.

I'm a nurse. I can say without reservation or hyperbole that full moons are the bastians of crazy and are the harbingers of woe. Patients who are always pleasant suddenly become unruly. Patients who pretty much never ring the call bell will literally ring every 5 minutes. Patients who have no issues sleeping will sleep poorly or need sedation to sleep. Patients who are medically stable will become unstable. We will suddenly have several admissions to our unit throught the day. These are just the things off the top of my head - and that's not even the weird stuff!!!...sorry to stray off track!!

It would be lovely for HM if the baby was born on her birthday - the 21st. I bet she would be absolutely delighted!

Just FYI, the next full moon won't be until May 4th so the craziness outside of the Lindo Wing won't have any celestial help unless Kate is late enough to go into labor on May 4th.

I must admit that a few times a day something reminds me that we are now close to the big day and then I check to see if there is any news!

April 21st is my sentimental hope as well.... I think a lovely bit of family continuity for a child to be born on their great grandmother's birthday.

conversely - I hope the child is not born on April 29th; it wouldn't be terrible, but ideally couples should have that day for themselves - and not shared with children's birthdays parties.

Yes and no. It would be lovely for them to share a birthday but later - after HM passes - maybe not so much.

Just thank goodness the baby didn't arrive on Charles and Camilla's anniversary!

Personally, I think if the baby had arrived on Camilla's birthday, it would be a cause for a happy celebration in the family.

I was born on my grandmother's birthday, one year after she died. I have always felt very special! I think it would a wonderful day for a young princess.

Most times when people are newer here, it takes a while for them to realize that we're not like many other places out there and its not the norm here to insinuate slurs against anyone here.

Actually, I meant to say anniversary in my previous post. Kate would really have to go very very late in the pregnancy to have the baby on Camilla's birth date. No matter what day the baby is born on, it will be that little person's very own special day no matter what.

My paternal grandpa was born on the same day as the queen, only 4 years earlier; during a severe ice storm (imagine that, an ice storm the third week of April in southern Ontario!) My great-grandpa called the doctor but he never got there, so their neighbour performed the delivery. Grandpa would be 93 this coming Tuesday if he was still alive. My dad, on the other hand, was born the day after his dad's 30th birthday, so he's going to be 63 a week from today, the 22nd; the same age as Grandpa was when he retired, but my dad isn't ready to retire QUITE yet. All 5 of my cousins had been born by that time (all boys), but not me or my two younger brothers. And no, my parents do NOT want grandchildren at this point of their lives, but maybe 10 years from now, when my brothers and I are in our early and mid 30's.

It would be great if Will and Kate's baby came on the 21st, 22nd or 29th!

I hope it's alright to post this here. If not, Mods kindly disregard and remove. I thought it might help to put costs into perspective between the U.S. and Britain for obstetric care.
The Royal Baby will actually be cheaper than giving birth uninsured in the USA - Mirror Online
