The next heir to the throne is almost here! Now that Kate’s July 13 due date has come and gone, the Duchess of Cambridge has gone to her parents’ house to wait for the royal baby’s arrival.
The world is waiting with bated breath for Kate Middleton, 31, and Prince William, 31, to welcome the royal baby! No one is more excited than the Duchess of Cambridge herself, who decided to spend some time at her parents’ home in Bucklebury before the big day.
Kate Middleton Stays At Her Parents’ House To Wait For The Royal Baby
Kate had been hiding out at her parents’ house for the past few weeks before moving to a home much closer to St. Mary’s Hospital in London, where she will give birth. But with Will away at a charity polo match on July 14, Kate went back to Bucklebury for another visit with her parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, according to People magazine.
A heat wave has pushed temperatures in Bucklebury into the high 80s, but we’re sure Kate’s parents are doing everything they can to keep the mom-to-be comfortable!

Meanwhile, at St. Mary’s Hospital, the staff can’t wait for Kate to arrive and give birth to the royal baby!
“Every tea break I will ask around, ‘Is she here yet?'” Lyza Marie Felicia, 25, a radiologist’s assistant in the Lindo Wing, told People magazine. “It’s been the topic of the day for a week now. But we know it’s a royal baby, so it’s a really big deal and everything has to be really private.”
To ensure Will and Kate’s privacy, Lyza and her co-workers had to sign confidentialty agreements.
“There is really tight security now on that ward,” she said. “We have to sign our names in as we come into the ward and when we leave.”
Lyza added, “I asked security two days ago if Kate had arrived, and he could only tell me that she hadn’t arrived.”
