It turns out the royal could Prince William and Kate will not know if they are having a boy or a girl until the baby is born as countdown begins with parking suspended outside St Mary’s Hospital’s Lindo Wing where she will be giving birth

According to sources, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge won't know whether they are having a boy or a girl until the baby is delivered.

 

During routine scans William and Kate did not ask if they would be welcoming a son or daughter - opting to be surprised as with the Duchess's previous pregnancies.

Parking has now been suspended outside the hospital where Kate, 36, is expected to give birth at some point over the next three weeks as anticipation builds.

When Kate goes into labour she will be cared for in the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London, where Prince George and Princess Charlotte were born.

 

She is likely to have a team of more than 20 medical experts and other staff working or on stand-by from Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, which runs St Mary's.

Consultant obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston and consultant gynaecologist Alan Farthing will be again involved after helping to deliver Kate's previous children.

Kate's baby is expected in April and, although a due date has not been released, it is thought the infant will be born in the second half of the month.
