Kate Middleton and Prince William prepared for six minute dash to the hospital for royal baby number three

Kate Middleton and Prince William have everything they need prepared for when their third child is born in the next few weeks.

Kate Middleton’s reported due date for her third child with Prince William is looming near and it is thought the Duchess could give birth any day now.

After spending the last few weeks in Norfolk and visiting her family in Buckleberry, heavily pregnant Kate is said to be back in London with her hospital bag packed and ready for the trip to the Lindo Wing for the birth of her third child.

Emily Nash, royal correspondent for HELLO! revealed: ‘Kate and the family have spent a lovely Easter holiday in Norfolk but now they’re back in London and George is back at school and Charlotte is soon to be back at nursery – I’m sure Kate will be enjoying a few moments of peace before she becomes a mother of three.’

It will take Kate and William just six minutes to drive from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing, where Kate gave birth to Prince George in 2013, and Princess Charlotte in 2015, meaning that the couple are poised to make the journey any day now.

Of course, depending on London’s famous traffic, the journey to hospital could take a little longer than planned.

Although with Kate Middleton and Prince William’s car heavily assisted and followed by royal protection officers, it might be unlikely the expectant-mum will experience any sort of delay or complication during her journey.

The Lindo Wing, located in St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington is 0.7 miles from the Palace, and is the place where both Prince William and Prince Harry were born. Preparations have already been made ahead of Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s new sibling’s arrival, with the hospital ready to receive the third royal baby at any moment.

Crowds have already started to gather behind the barriers, in hope that they’ll catch a glimpse of the royals or indeed get a first look at the new royal baby.

Not long to wait now!
