Live stream video coverage of the royal baby delivery announcement is available online for those who want up-to-the-minute information about Kate Middleton‘s impending arrival.
Video cameras are currently set up outside the Lindo Wing of Paddington’s St. Mary’s Hospital, with media patiently waiting for the news that the Duchess of Cambridge and her husband, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, have arrived at the hospital to welcome their second child into the world.
The Telegraph has set up a video feed at the hospital that will go live when Kate Middleton is admitted to St. Mary’s hospital. Live coverage will begin with an announcement that the Duchess is in labor, and will continue until the new baby — a boy or a girl? — arrives.
After the birth of Kate and William’s first child, George, in July, 2013, the couple came out to meet the press after Mom and baby were released from the hospital. The Duke and Duchess were all smiles when they walked out the door of Lindo Wing, and proudly showed Prince George of Cambridge off to both the media and adoring fans who lined the streets near St. Mary’s hospital.

Well wishers and the media will likely be treated to a few moments with the couple and their new addition when the little one arrives — and that will be very soon.
No official due date has been revealed, but there are rumors that Kate is due right about now. Predictions as to when she will deliver, the sex of the baby, and the new royal baby’s name have been circulating online for months, but soon the guessing game will be over.
According to Mail Online, “thousands of wagers” have been placed on just about everything associated with the impending birth of the royal baby. The biggest bets have been placed on the expectation that Kate and William will welcome a little girl into the world, with many gambling on her name being Alice.
“We’ve had two bets of 500 pounds both on the name being Alice and this is massive, massive bets for us. The average bet on this type of market is about three to five pounds so a bet of this size is unheard of.”
Aside from the live stream media coverage of the royal baby news, once the Duchess has given birth, there will be an official announcement of the baby’s sex, weight, and time of birth on Twitter from @ClarenceHouse and @BritishMonarchy.
