» William and Kate really DON'T know the sex of their baby and the Duchess isn't 'too posh to push': We reveal everything you need to know about the Royal birth the world is waiting for
The Duchess of Cambridge is planning to give birth naturally and has chosen the same private hospital where her husband was born to deliver the future baby king or queen, MailOnline can reveal today.
Before I am asked, yes we will be paying for her treatment
Royal baby will be born in same London hospital as Prince William - private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Paddington & he will be at the birth.
The birth of William & Kate’s baby will also be announced on news wires, the Palace website and even on TWITTER!
Royal doctors Marcus Setchell & Alan Farthing - whose late fiancé Jill Dando was famously murdered - will deliver William & Kate’s baby.
Informed sources say despite intense speculation William and Kate still do not know their unborn child’s sex and have not asked to know.
A royal aide will take a royal birth bulletin to waiting car outside the hospital. It will be displayed on an easel at Buckingham Palace.
Sources say the palace will only announce the birth of the William@@ Kate’s baby once the Queen has been told.
Palace recognises royal birth is a time of national celebration but has asked for the media to respect William & Kate’s privacy.
Kate will be off royal duties on maternity leave. No engagements have been scheduled until further notice.
Prince William, currently a Search and Rescue Pilot with the RAF plans to take two weeks paternity leave.
To maintain the ‘theatre and tradition’ of the royal birth of a future monarch the announcement will be made in the old fashioned way.
I wonder who she is in this fandom, reveal yourself

Prince Williams engagement count for 2013- January 1 to June 16
According to the Court Circular, Prince William has worked a total of 12 days this year
January 11- He and Kate visited the NPG to see the unveiling of her portrait. This was a private event until the press found out, and it was then added to the Court Circular (I personally dont count this)
June 4- William joined the rest of the Royal Family for the 60th anniversary service at Westminster Abbey commemorating the Queens coronation. Again, this is an event that I personally dont think should be counted as an engagement for any royal since it is more of a family event than work.
Subtracting the two days that I dont believe should be counted, that brings the days work to 10.
Wow 10 days out of 6 months, hold on there William you are going to tire yourself out
