How every celebrity-esque!

The royal baby's birth is usually announced on an easel in Buckingham Palace's forecourt.

Traditionally, a royal baby announcement is made via a public notice nailed to an easel in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace but, while that will also happen this time, it seems Kensington Palace has moved on with technology.

It's been confirmed that once the little prince or princess arrives, an email will be sent out to journalists followed by an announcement on Twitter of the baby's sex, weight and time of birth.

Once those announcements have gone out, the traditional easel notice will be prepared.

The doctors who deliver the baby will sign a birth announcement that will then be taken by unmarked car to Buckingham Palace, where it will be displayed in the forecourt.

That happened with the birth of Prince George as well two years ago.

Kate is due to give birth at the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington, London once again. It's the same place where George was delivered on 22 July 2013.

It's widely believed that Kate is now a few days overdue with her second child, although Kensington Palace never confirmed the actual due date, only revealing a mid to late April timescale.
