It’s been about a month since the royal baby Prince George was born and subsequently the same amount of time since the world has seen pics of the royal bundle of joy but that has now changed. His parents Prince William and Kate Middleton today released two family photos taken by Kate’s father Michael Middleton in early August at the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire. In the first picture William stands next to wife Kate who is holding baby George and in the second picture the happy family is joined by their cocker spaniel Lupo.  The first official family photos come on the heels of Will’s first TV interview since Prince George was born. In his interview with CNN’s Max Foster, Prince William said; “I think the last few weeks for me have been just a very different emotional experience, something I never thought I would feel myself. And I find, again it’s only been a short period, but a lot of things affect me differently now.”

The day that millions of people all around the world have been waiting for is finally here. Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby boy today at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. The baby boy whose name has not been released yet was born at 4:24 p.m. London time and weighed in at 8 lbs 6 oz. Middleton arrived at the hospital at 6 a.m. local time after going into labor and was of course accompanied by Prince William who was by her side every step of the way. The two entered the hospital through a side door and were driven from Kensington Palace via a two-car convoy. Upon news of the royal baby’s birth being released, statements were also made saying; “Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight. “The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are delighted at the news.”  Meanwhile new grandpa Prince Charles made this statement; “Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild. It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy. It’s highly likely that the first glimpse the world gets of Kate and Will’s baby will be right outside the hospital, which is where Will also made his debut in his mother’s arms. So now the world will be waiting with baited breath for the name of little royal to be released and the first pictures of the happy family of three.

As Kate Middleton’s due date rapidly approaches, information about the hospital where the Duchess will be giving birth is starting to be revealed including details of the birthing suit and hospital security. Kate will be delivering the royal heir at St. Mary’s Hospital, the maternity facility is a favorite of many royals, and more specifically in the Lindo Wing of the hospital where Prince William and Harry were delivered. According to the hospital’s official website, in each room of the Lindo Wing there is a satellite TV, a radio, a safe, bedside phone, Internet access and a fridge. A dedicated hotel services team provides an extensive and nutritious menu, catering to each individual’s dietary requirements. The Lindo Wing assures patients “total peace of mind” based on their expert team of obstetric, neonatal and anesthetist care professionals. According to the U.K’s Sun, a fresh bouquet of flowers will be delivered to Kate’s suite every day and blackout curtains will ensure privacy. For extra security and privacy, just today police have been doing a massive sweep of the facilities this morning to ensure that the Duke and Duchess have the utmost privacy and care.  And when the little royal finally arrives, an announcement will be made to the public and a notice placed on the gates of Buckingham palace will reveal the baby’s gender. It might, however, be a few days before the baby’s name is revealed. Royal sources confirm that Prince William is expected to be right by his wife’s side through the delivery process and will take a statutory paternity leave before returning to his chopper search-and-rescue duties.

Kim Sent Kate A Maternity Gift
With the U.K’s royalty and Hollywood’s royalty both expecting it would come as no surprise that the two moms-to-be are in communication with each other. Well that’s exactly the story being reported by a British news outlet. The U.K’s Daily Mirror is claiming that Kim Kardashian has sent fellow mom-to-be Duchess Kate Middleton a note along with a maternity gift. According to the Mirror‘s story, Kardashian is “convinced she and the Duchess of Cambridge are kindred maternal sisters after discovering the pair are expecting two weeks apart. Obsessed with the idea her baby shares its birth month — July — with the Royal family, [Kardashian] has written to Kate, wishing her luck with the birth and including a small gift.” The newspaper goes on to claim that Kardashian is disappointed not to have received a response. Well there’s a simple and logical explanation for all this, there has never been any communication between Middleton and Kardashian.

Has the Kate Middleton herself actually revealed the sex of her baby? If you believe the Telegraph then its true the royal couple are expecting a baby girl. While visiting the seaport of Grimsby on England’s east coast, the Duchess may have slipped up and revealed the sex of her child. After being given a teddy bear, Kate apparently said “Thank you, I’ll take that for my d…” before cutting herself off abruptly. Sandra Cook, 67, who was standing next to Kate in the crowd, replied to the duchess’ supposed slipup: “I said to her, ‘You were going to say daughter, weren’t you?'” Kate reportedly replied “No, I don’t know” before Cook pressed further, “Oh, I think you do.” At that point her hubby Prince William seems to have stepped in stating “We’re not telling”. Few details have been revealed about the royal baby, although the palace has confirmed Duchess Kate is expecting her baby in July.

Looks like the future royal parents-to-be are enjoying a little R&R. Reports state that Kate and Prince William are enjoying a vacation on the island of Mustique. The royal couple supposedly left Monday for their tropical vacation after Will wrapped his weekend shift at work. Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, have also reportedly joined the duo but are staying in a separate home on the Caribbean island. An insider told UK’s The Sun, “Both William and Kate were hoping her condition would not stop her from making the eight-hour flight to Barbados and the connection to Mustique. A month ago such a journey would have been unthinkable for her, so this is a clear sign she has made a virtual recovery.”

Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton are undoubtedly carrying Hollywood’s most anticipated babies to be born this year. After both announcing within weeks of each other that they were expecting, it was also recently announced that they are both due to give birth in July. But the similarities don’t end there. Kate was hospitalized back in December for hyperemesis gravidarum, or acute morning sickness, but has been improving ever since. Likewise, Kim recently revealed on Tuesday during her visit to the Today show that she struggled with infertility issues much like younger sis Khloe Kardashian Odom. Now all we need to wait for is the news confirming whether Kim and Kate are expecting boys or girls.
