I would definitely go with the hospital wanting to avoid the crowds gathering outside. It could turn out to be inconvenient for the other patients and staff and business as usual for the hospital. No one likes a three ring circus when they need medical care.

Oh, very true. I think they've told the press when they can start getting ready for the birth so as to make things more convenient for the hospital. However, if she was due on the 5th then it seems unlikely that they would tell the press that they couldn't get set up at the hospital until the 15th. It seems likely to me that she has a later due date so to keep the press from waiting outside the hospital for weeks before she's even due they've narrowed the timeline from "she's due anytime in April" to "she's due sometime between April 15th and April 30th".

If they can tell the media not to set up until April 15th, why can't they tell them they can't set up until Catherine checks in. The media missed her arrival the last time, they can miss this one too. It's not a good time to have your picture taken.

I think they can only run their cabling starting the 15th but can't start showing up until she is admitted. There is a briefing apparently on the 9th on how the process is going to work.

If I am not mistaken, the press actually did manage to get a picture of Catherine when she arrived at St Mary's to give birth to Prince George, but decided against publishing it. I understand she arrived in an unmarked Saab, owned by the Police.

Last time it was announced fairly early that it was a mid-to-late July birth but even so the press started to set up on the 1st but this is only the second child, the spare so there won't be as many press e.g. I don't think that all the overseas networks will have their personnel on the ground over there as much as use the feed from the local networks. Simply point - in the grand scheme of things this baby isn't as important as George's birth was.


I know that there have been many younger children who have succeeded but the reasons are less likely to occur in the present day than they did in the past. Accidents can happen of course but in the normal course of medical reasons diseases like influenza, which killed Eddy, or abdication due to choosing a twice-divorced American are less likely to happen these days.

Hmmm, we seem to keep producing a lot of twice divorced Americans if that's what an heir wants to look for.

That's because they collectively started to believe their own invented due date of July 11th and combined that with "what if the baby comes early" panic.

Yep the media assumed the baby was going to come early, so they set up at the beginning of the month. I remember many of the reporters saying that it was complete chaos.

That's why I don't blame KP (and the hospital) for keeping the media away until the 15th. No one wants a repeat of what happened last time. I imagine it was quite disruptive for the patients and the hospital staff. Having a set day and assigned spots for the media, ensures that there is much less chaos.

I know. Every time I see this thread, I expect to come in and see an announcement.

IIRC it was two Italian Paps who saw them arrive, but both thought back to when they were first time Dads/bringing their Wives in labour to the Hospital and decided to not to take the picture.

Also the only time I've seen any of the Paparazzi actions praised on here ever, but deserved.

When Kate is officially in Labour, there'll be a separate thread started by the Mods. Just thought I'd mention that for our new Members who haven't been around for a Royal Baby Watch yet. :)

It was two photographers from London that saw them arrive. They were actually the first ones to break the news. I remember being on twitter and seeing a tweet from one of them saying Kate had gone into labor.

They had decided ahead of time not to take any photos of her, but they did take photos of their car and the protection officers entering the hospital.

Not expecting to see much of Kate & William this summer after the royal birth. They will be in Norfolk where Wills will take up his new role

Not expecting to see much of Kate & William this summer after the royal birth as after an initial couple of days at Kensington Palace following the birth, the young family reside in Norfolk where William will take up his new air ambulance role following 2 weeks paternity leave.

Richard Palmer @RoyalReporter 3m 3 minutes ago
William is currently training at three airports - Staverton in Gloucestershire, Norwich, and Cambridge but mainly Staverton.

I'm also glad things are being straightened out.

I know William & Catherine and all their families are excited.

Glad they put these clarifications out. Might help quell some of the on-going speculation.

William & Kate will decide on the day whether or not to bring Prince George to see new his new sibling at St Mary's Hospital #royalbaby

KEY POINTS announced today about the next royal birth. #RoyalBaby #William #Kate #PrinceGeorge
https://twitter.com/britishroyals/st...89379854409729

Richard Palmer @RoyalReporter 9m 9 minutes ago
Guy Thorpe-Beeston, appointed surgeon-gynaecologist to the Royal Household in June 2014, will be assisted by Alan Farthing at the birth.

Richard Palmer @RoyalReporter 8m 8 minutes ago
Mr Farthing holds the title of surgeon-gynaecologist and, as far as I can see, is more senior in the household.


"William, 32, will take two weeks' paternity leave, then return to air ambulance training. Kate is expected to take longer maternity leave than last time to be with both the children.

She is likely to attend Trooping the Colour on June 13 and perhaps a couple of other set piece royal events but it is expected to be several months before she returns to official duties. Last time she was back for a couple of engagements in under two months before taking more leave."

I read on twitter that parking restrictions start from the 13th... The due date might be on that week, although it means little...
