The reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, was only eligible to rule because her father had no male children. Elizabeth has been on the throne 61 years. This baby will be the queen’s third great-grandchild. Kate is expected to give birth in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, where Diana had William and Harry. The formal birth announcement will come after the queen, royal family and Middletons have heard the good news, royal sources say. Sign The Royal Baby Guestbook The announcement will follow the royal tradition of posting a paper announcement signed by the doctors on an easel outside Buckingham Palace. The announcement is expected to include the baby’s gender, weight and time of birth. This old-fashioned announcement will be accompanied by a few more modern methods. The palace is also expected to announce the birth through Twitter and their website. Prince William was the first royal heir to be born in a hospital instead of in the palace. The first sighting of him and Prince Harry was when their parents exited the hospital with the new princes in tow. William and Kate are expected to do the same with their new arrival.
She was at Marlborough, he was at Eton and they’d met when they were at Sixth Form through some mutual friends,” she revealed. Kate Middleton at her graduation from St Andrews in 2005 (WENN) “Through mutal friends Kate met William and that really put a new light on the situation because before then I’d thought they’d met at St Andrews, but they hadn’t, they’d met at school.” She went on: “Then I’d discovered the very stunning revelation that she’d changed her university choice, she was meant to go to Edinburgh to study the history of art and she’s changed to go to St Andrews when it was made public Prince William was going to go there to study the same course.” But did Kate change her mind just to pursue the future king? Katie admitted it would be inevitable that William, who at the time was the most eligible bachelor on the planet, would leave an impression on the teenage Kate. “I don’t know what an impression he’d left,” she said, “I can only imagine that as a 17 year-old school girl, that she must have had some sort of feeling towards him. You couldn’t be that young and impressionable and not be charmed by Prince William.” But admitting we’ll probably never know the reason behind Kate’s change of heart she went on: “The only person who knows why she changed her mind was Kate, but we know that she changed her mind and we know that she changed her mind having met William. “So was the seed sown? Was there something planted that perhaps incentivised her to change her mind and change her university?” Kate and William kiss at their 2011 Royal Wedding (Splash News/SteveFinn) Claiming the decision was out of character for the sensible Kate, she revealed those who knew her the best had been surprised by it. “The teachers I spoke to for the book and the friends I spoke to all said that it was very out of character. Usually Kate made her mind up and stuck to her decision, it was very rare for her to have a U-turn or a change of heart,” she added. Well whatever made Kate change her mind, it was clearly the right decision as not only did she fall in love with William the couple stayed together for over a decade and finally got married in 2011, welcoming son George this year.
