All eyes are on the royal family, as Kate Middleton is due to give birth to the royal baby any day now. While few details are being divulged, some members of the royal family have recently spoken out about the future heir's birth. Both Queen Elizabeth II and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have commented on the royal baby this week, expressing their excitement for the little one's arrival. As royal-baby fever steadily grows, see how the family of the future prince or princess has been staying sane and getting ready for arguably one of the biggest events of the year.
The Duchess of Cambridge has been preparing for the arrival of the royal baby in the only way she can: by waiting. She wrapped up her final public appearance on June 16 when she took part in the Trooping the Colour parade alongside the royal family, and she recently left London to spend time with her parents at their home in Bucklebury. She'd previously been staying at the couple's home, Nottingham Cottage, in the grounds of Kensington Palace in London while waiting for renovations to finish up on the family's private apartments inside the palace itself. Once she goes into labor, Kate will be taken to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital via police escort. When she is safely inside the hospital, the palace will announce that Kate has gone into labor.
