|Royal Baby commemorative item for sale|
The Royal Baby has everyone around the world excited! We all can't wait to hear if it's a boy or girl! It is one of the most anticipated births of the decade!
The word is, that Prince William is absolutely thrilled about becoming a dad! He is determined to be a 'hands-on father' (Doesn't he sound like his mother!) According to one of his friends, he's been watching a lot of "Nappy-Changing" videos on YouTube. Prince Harry thinks it's hysterical and can't stop making fun of him (in a good way!) Prince William also likes to sing to Kate's baby bump!
Fun Royal Baby Facts:
The first to know about the royal baby will be Queen Elizabeth II, Prime Minister David Cameron and the governors general of each of the Commonwealth nations, along with the rest of the royal and Middleton families.
If the baby arrives in the middle of the night, it's unlikely the queen will be awoken, so there is a chance in that instance that an official announcement will not be made until the following morning.
The baby will have the title His or Her Royal Highness Prince or Princess (the baby's name) of Cambridge, St. James's Palace said this month. However, it could be as long as 10 days before the baby's name is announced.
Celebratory gun salutes will be sounded by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery in Green Park (41 rounds) and the Honorable Artillery Company at the Tower of London (62 rounds) after the baby is born.
Anyone born in Britain on the same day as William and Catherine's baby will receive a special coin from the Royal Mint: a silver penny, dated 2013, that will come in a blue pouch for a boy or a pink one for a girl.
