Someone on Twitter said it took about 2 hours before the media were told that Kate was in the hospital, so I'm still holding out hope.

I wonder if that's why there was a flurry of announcements about Harry, William and C&C this morning. They were trying to get everything out before it got lost in all of the hoppla surrounding the birth.

Nah, I doubt it will happen today. When Kate was appointed with George someone even saw her. There would be cars, security, I suppose.

But the police would want to a security sweep before they actually showed up. It could also be just a regularly scheduled sweep of the area.
Once she gets into the hospital and admitted. The families would have to be notified before it is announced to the public so it's never going to be right after she gets there.

Well, if nothing happens in the next two hours then it is a false alarm.

I just read that there was a fire at a restaurant near the Lindo Wing, so that may be why the police were there.

Things will get crazy again once Catherine is admitted to the hospital, and the media really start gathering.

There's excitement in the air though!
Things will definitely pick up once she's in the hospital. Some media outlets are even rolling out the Lindo Wing camera again.

Thanks for that information about Harry's birth, Mermaid1962.

Scanning twitter, not much is going on. As was said, there will be regular security sweeps, dry runs and perhaps false alarms on the part of the baby.

Bear in mind, the labor and delivery of second babies are usually MUCH faster than firsts. When she is admitted, the wait will likely be much shorter.

The first sign for me will be police presence stationed outside the hospital. Has that occurred yet?

I don't think so. That'll happen once Catherine is admitted. Once we see them stationed in front of the Lindo Wing doors, that's the major sign she's in and preparing to deliver. Of course, the official announcements will be out.

Police were making their final security checks outside St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington today, as the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's second child approaches.

With Kate's due date is just over three days away, officers were out in force, pulling lamp posts apart as they scoured the area for anything troubling.

the police were watched by a small but growing group of royal fans, many of whom had set up camp on a set of benches and had decorated the area with posters and bunting.

The Duke of Cambridge has finished the initial phase of training for his new job earlier than expected meaning he is now on leave until after his wife gives birth-

Nope no police presence yet. But as Dman pointed out, the last time they didn't take up position until after Kate had been admitted.

I think like with George, our first clue may come from the paps. I imagine there are photographers hanging around KP and one of the photographers on twitter, just said that there are a number of paps hanging out near the back entrance of the Lindo Wing. So they'll probably be the first to report any movement.

I remember driving home from a night shift the morning of George's birth and hearing on the radio that she had been admitted to hospital. I think this was from a member of the paparazzi camped outside the hospital. I think the paps will be the first to tell us she is in hospital.

To be honest I am bored already of the press reports. Imagine being the newsreader parked outside the hopsital for days on end? I just wish they would leave Catherine in peace and just assemble outside the hospital when the birth has been announced.

No reporters are parked outside the hospital. Media "pen" (how appropriate is that!) will not be opened until Catherine has been admitted.

So they are sitting in their offices bored out of their minds and speculating like mad

Which is why I think police presence will be the first alert this time around, rather than the press.

I remember the day or George's birth like this . It was really really hot and really really loud . Loud , because our neighbors had decided it was the perfect day to cut down an oak tree . They started at about 7 am and it took the entire day . I can still hear the sound of that saw zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

I like this picture of Kate and George. According to People magazine it's happening Monday. Though I doubt Kate's doctors called People magazine with that information.

I think it may depend on the time of day. The paps are camping out all night, so they may be the only ones to notice any type of police presence, or see her if she goes into labor in the middle of the night.

In the near future, I'm predicting being called horrible names by Kate and being threatened that he is never touching her again following by immense happiness and then lots of nappy changing. 😋

Yes there was 2 paps who spotted Catherine and reported it.
