How long after the birth is the name known?

George's name was confirmed 2 days after his birth.

...then we'll wait for the christening date, the announcement of the godparents, the christening itself... until it is school, university, girl-/boyfriend, engagement... We will be busy for a lifetime. Maybe that's what is putting baby off?

OK, baby Cambridge. There's a public holiday in the UK on Monday and I'm working all weekend. So either arrive asap or Tuesday.

Hope you all enjoy the excitement (or not) over the weekend.

Jesal Parshotam - the chap who photographed the Duchess of Cambridge entering the hospital in labour with Prince George - has tweeted that tonight may be the night.

More activity around the Lindo Wing at this time of night than any previous night.

Six uniformed police officers spotted doing more checks.

If the Duchess does go into under cover of darkness, I'm impressed with those who named May 2nd as the birth date all that time back.

Interesting I just followed him on twitter. I think we all agree it will be any time now, It just a matter of when.

Niraj Tanna just tweeted about the Sunday papers getting the scoop - he's one of those paps who's always around. Maybe he sees the activity too.

I hope this will be over for Catherine in the hours to come. Can't be easy for her to be overdue.

You're welcome royalistbert.

And just another thing that seemed a bit far-fetched a couple of weeks ago when I first saw it tweeted -

Some one not only named May 2nd as the day, but said it would be an elected section.

With everyone so focused on an April birth, this seemed right "out there" at the time.

Now if this comes to pass - well, someone is "in the know".

And as another tweeter pointed out, a long time ago Mrs Middleton was quoted as "hoping for a May baby".

I now remember reading that somewhere, it rang a bell to have it brought up again.

I should have kept that in mind - would have saved a lot of internet surfing the last week or two.


(And Auntie Pippa spent the anticipated birthdate weekend, April 25th, in Venice - so not worried about missing out.

She and brother James have been photographed fixing a flat tyre - better now than on the way for the first baby visit I guess.)

An interesting tweet from what appears to be a random tweeter:

Evening at a friend's place who lives in Paddington : there is bloody paps EVERYWHERE #RoyalBaby #waiting

Now that makes sense GracieGiraffe - if baby doesn't arrive in the world under her/his own steam before-hand, you would time an intervention/helping-hand for the news to be carried on a Sunday - and a long weekend in Britain at that.

I think this is it now.

Perhaps the police have been notified that Catherine will soon be arriving at the hospital to be induced. ????

This will not be the last Royal baby in 30 years. I am almost certain the Cambridges will not stop at two. Then we have the Luxembourg princes and the gorgeous Princes and Princesses in your own home country, just to name a few!

It's time to make like a baby and head out!

William needs to ever so gently tap the bump and tell that child that one really cannot sit one's college exams from the womb.
