Charlotte has been a regal name for centuries and as the feminine form of Charles could be a tribute to grandfather, Prince Charles. Kate's sister, Pippa's middle name is also Charlotte.

Update: 1st May 2015

Prince Charles is already the proud grandfather to Prince George, but the royal has revealed he would love to see Kate and Will welcome a bouncing baby girl in the next few days. 

Charles' confession came as he met Welsh Guardsmen, veterans and their families after the Queen presented new colours to the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards at Windsor Castle.

At the reception, the heir to the throne struck up conversation with 100-year-old Eric Jones, the oldest surviving member of the Welsh Guards, who made a joke about having daughters. 

Lynda Bateman, daughter of the centenarian, revealed: "My father introduced me as his daughter and Prince Charles asked how many daughters he had. My father said 'One - and that's enough' and Charles laughed and said: 'And we're hoping for a granddaughter!'"

The couple raised speculation that they were expecting a daughter when they sent breakfast hampers wrapped in pink ribbons to fans outside the hospital, however insiders insist the pair have chosen not to find out the sex of the baby.

Meanwhile, one royal super fan Catherine Wylie has posted a Vine video of the scene at the hospital this morning:

Update: Thursday 30 April

The Duchess of Cambridge may of had enough of waiting for the arrival of her second child, as it's speculated she's been swimming laps at Buckingham Palace in a bid to induce labour. The heavily pregnant royal - who is believed to be at least three days past her due date - was seen driving away from the palace grounds with Prince George in and his nanny in tow on Tuesday night, where she is thought to have taken her son for a dip.

According to the Telegraph, baby experts can often recommend swimming to overdue mothers as a way of bringing on labour naturally. The NHS says expectant mums who are fit and in shape will cope with labour more easily and find it easier to get back into shape after birth. 

Update: Wednesday 29 April 2015

As speculation over when The Duchess will pop reaches fever pitch, rumours are circulation that Kate may soon be induced into having the baby.

If the royal second baby is born today it will be a wonderful fourth wedding ­anniversary present for William and Kate, who married on 29 April 2011.

The fake tweet:

Royal fans and the media alike were sent into a frenzy after a fake Tweet apparently announcing the birth, name and weight of Kate and William's second child was posted. 

Despite no news of the Duchess going into labour, many news outlets and royal baby aficionados jumped on the news and retweeted or favourited the post. 

Luckily however, this was all simply a false alarm and Kate is still pregnant with no sign of her second child yet.

Update: Tuesday 28 April 2015

Security measures are being stepped up outside the Lindo Wing as speculation mounts that the Duchess may be about to go into labour. A police sniffer dog was also spotted outside of the hospital in preparation for the royal family's arrival.  

The news comes after William and Kate sent a breakfast hamper to feed fans who have been camping outside the hospital for a week, hoping to glimpse the royal baby after it's born.

A Kensington Palace source said: "The Duke and Duchess were aware that they had been out there for a long time and just wanted to do something for them." 

The eagle-eyed royal-watchers also seized on the fact that the treats came in boxes tied up with pink ribbon, but royal insiders said the colour was pure coincidence. 

"The shop where they came from just happens to use pink ribbon," said a source, repeating the fact that the Duke and Duchess do not know the sex of their baby.

Update: Monday 27 April 2015

Questions are being asked as to whether The Duchess of Cambridge should continue to give birth as planned at St Mary's Hospital, after a superbug has led to the closure of a ward.

Three patients are reportedly said to be infected with the deadly microorganism Carbapenemase which produces enterobacteriaceae, but have all since made a full recovery.

Kate's overdue:

The Duchess of Cambridge was scheduled to give birth to her second child on Saturday 25 of April but hasn't yet. Should Kate be two weeks late, she will be overdue. 

The Duchess is set to have her baby at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital where she had Prince George. As it's the second time she stays at the London Hospital she will be given a discount on her bill, which is £6,000 per day plus consultant fees.

Whilst on a visit to a children's centre in Woolwich, London, the Duchess was asked about her due date by Christine Osborne, a 49-year-old volunteer. The gorgeous royal smiled and replied: "I’m due mid-April, to the end of April. Not long to go now."

This means the royal bubba could potentially have the same birthday as Her Majesty the Queen, who will be turning 89 on April 21. It could also be born on the national day of England's patron saint St George on April 23, which could be rather fitting for a child the future fourth-in-line to the throne.
