Royal baby fever has begun. Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Prince William are set to welcome their second child within the next few weeks, and preparations have already begun.
According to the UK Mirror, St. Mary’s Hospital in the Paddington area of London has already begun to set up parking restrictions as Middleton’s due date approaches. The Duchess of Cambridge will give birth at the hospital’s Lindo Wing, the same location where she had Prince George on July 22, 2013.
Lindo Wing is also where Princess Diana gave birth to her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. In 1982, she exited the hospital with her first child, wearing a green polka-dot dress. Kate paid tribute to Prince William’s late mother by leaving the hospital with Prince George after donning a blue dress with polka dots. Following Prince Harry’s birth in 1984, Princess Diana showed off her second son while wearing a long red jacket. It’s unclear whether Kate will follow suit.
Watch old video footage of Princess Diana leaving the hospital in 1984 with Prince Harry:
Middleton previously told a volunteer at the Brookhill Children’s Center that she was due in “mid-April to the end of April.” A press pen has been set up outside the hospital for journalists to report on the royal birth; however, the media will reportedly be unable to stand outside the Lindo Wing until the Duchess of Cambridge goes into labor. According to Hello Magazine, the rule is new and was put in place after the media set up outside of the hospital weeks before Prince George’s birth.
