Royal baby: ‘Convoy’ seen outside Kensington Palace as wait goes on with Duchess of Cambridge now six days overdue – live updates
Amid fears royal baby watchers could be made to wait into May, a “convoy” has been sighted leaving Kensington Palace with the Duchess of Cambridge thought to be around six days overdue.
Parking restrictions outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, where the birth is due to take place, have been extended by Westminster council until 5 May, threatening to take the birth right up to within days of the general election on 7 May.
Kate was expecting to give birth to her second child in mid to late April, but she is several days overdue and still waiting for her new son or daughter.
With nothing continuing to happen outside the Lindo Wing itself, minor dramas included an 80th birthday for one of the devoted royal watchers and a police incident involving a possible tent trespass that turned out to be actually nothing at all.
