Odds are in for royal baby name

The countdown for the third royal baby, the arrival of Kate Middleton and Prince Williams's third child has begun.

Parking restrictions are now in place around the Lido Wing at London's St. Mary's Hospital, where Vanity Fair revealed weeks ago that the Duchess of Cambridge plans to give birth to her third child. The signage in South Wharf Road mentions the parking restriction from April 9 to April 30 is for an "event".

Prior to Andrews' report, Kensington Palace had only shared that Middleton was expected to give birth during the month of April.

"It would be such a wonderful coincidence if Kate was to give birth on St. George's Day, and patriotic punters forced us to cut the odds on the newest member of the Royal family entering the world on April 23rd", she said.

Kate's first two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were born in the exclusive unit in Paddington, central London, as were their father, the Duke of Cambridge, and uncle, Prince Harry.

The Lindo Wing is where the Duchess gave birth to Prince George in 2013 and Princess Charlotte in 2015.

Mohamed Elneny was also shown red before the end of the game, for a lighter push on Southampton fullback Cedric Soares. It took us some time to get to the pace of the game.

Crowd barriers are set up on the street outside to accommodate the television crews, journalists and photographers who will be present as she goes into labour.

Once the Duke and Duchess' third child is born, a statement will be issued about the little one's sex, weight, and time of birth. "The name on the birth certificate will say HRH [His or Her Royal Highness] Prince or Princess, and all three names of Cambridge".

Nonetheless, Kate and William have certainly perfected this whole routine. However be warned, if the royal baby is born at night, the palace won't make any announcements until 9 a.m. United Kingdom time (4 a.m. ET).

Kate didn't rest up in hospital after having her babies.

Kate is likely to take an extended period off to recover and nurse the latest addition to her family but is expected to attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on May 19.

The due date of the baby, who will be Queen Elizabeth's sixth great-grandchild, has not been revealed.
