Pssst: This Is How We Know The Royal Baby Is Coming Soon

Prince William Kate Middleton Prince George and Princess Charlotte are expecting a new addition to the family any day now

However be warned, if the royal baby is born at night, the palace won't make any announcements until 9 a.m. United Kingdom time (4 a.m. ET).

The baby will be fifth in line to inherit the crown after Charles, William, George and Charlotte (Prince Harry will move down to sixth place).

Kate is due to give birth any day.

Preparations are well underway as the Duchess prepares to give birth to her third child.

Unlike the time leading up to George's birth on July 22, 2013, media will not be able to stand in place opposite the famous door of the Lindo Wing until word has come from officials at Kensington Palace that Kate is in labor.

Kate Middleton will return to the Lindo Wing, the private maternity ward at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, where she had Prince George, now four, and Princess Charlotte, now two.

The barrier installation comes after royal photographer Arthur Edwards spotted that the railings outside the Lindo Wing were being painted last month.

The young princess will become the first female royal to retain her claim to the throne regardless of whether the Royal baby is a boy or a girl

When Kate does finally give birth (has it really only been nine months?), the public will likely hear about it through social media, specifically from the active Twitter account of Kensington Palace.

But if the Duke and Duchess welcome a little boy, Charlotte will be the first ever female member of the royal family to retain her position in the line of succession to the throne. If the Royal Baby is born April 21, the child will share a birthday with the Queen, who turns a spry 92 this year.

The British Monarchy also released a statement on its Facebook page, which said confirmed Prince William was there for the birth along with other formalities. An exact due date has not been announced.

The former Kate Middleton will be cared for by a medical team led by Dr. Guy Thorpe-Beeston and Dr. Alan Farthing, People reports.

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.

By choosing the exclusive hospital wing, she is following in the footsteps of the late Princess Diana, who had both her children, Princes Harry and William, there.
