The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is currently nine months pregnant with her third child. And it seems she could be ready to give birth any day now.
According to The Daily Mail, the royal couple has not announced the mom-to-be’s due date, but she’s expected to give birth this month.
Fans of the royal family have started their “baby watch” in anticipation of the bundle of joy due to some recent changes at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, where Middleton gave birth to her first two children with Prince William.
According to E! News, crowd control barriers were set up outside the hospital’s Lindo Wing, where Middleton is expected to give birth.
Don’t panic, but ROYAL BABY WATCH SEASON is officially underway! Barriers have gone up outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington in preparation for the world’s media, but won’t be in use until the Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted in labour. #royalbaby pic.twitter.com/3zRxVXmgwf

The gates were put in place on Monday and could signify that the hospital is preparing for media and fans who will swarm the hospital once it’s announced that Kate is in labor.
The same precautions were taken when she gave birth to her other children at the hospital.
Officials also put up a notice that parking has been suspended in the area until April 30, ET Online reports.Daniel Leal Olivas/Getty Images
The new baby will join older siblings Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2. But fans won’t know the gender until the big day.
The family will keep that a secret until an official announcement is made after the birth, as is royal tradition.
Until then, fans should keep an eye on Kensington Palace’s social media for news of the baby’s arrival.
