The Cambridges (Possible) Birth Plan

**A lot of this is based on Kate's Previous Pregnancies and has not yet been confirmed for Royal Baby 3** 

Due Date: Mid/Late April???? 

Sex: ??? (The couple likes to wait to find out)

Name: The baby will be called "His or Her Royal Highness Prince/ss (name) of Cambridge." The Baby's name will be announced a few days after birth. Per tradition, they will likely not have a name picked out when the baby is born. But they will have a short list. 

Hospital: St. Mary's Hospital, Lindo Wing in Paddington, London

The Cambridges will be staying in London ahead of the birth. But will have contingency plans if Kate happens to be at Anmer Hall or else where when she goes into labour. 

William will be present at the birth.

Media: There will be an Official Press Pen, for Accredited Media Only, outside the Hospital. It will not be open to Accredited Media until Kate goes into Labor and is admitted to the Hospital. Kensington Palace will issue a press release when this happens. Accredited Media will have assigned spots inside the pen and will not be allowed to set up equipment ahead of time.

Obviously, we will see the Media making stops by Lindo Wing to do some Great Kate Wait reporting. But they will not be allowed in the pens, or stick around for a long time.

Starting shortly before the due date to 72hrs after Kate leaves the hospital, news permits will not be needed for Green Park (Canada Gate), St. James’s Park and Kensington Gardens to allow media access to cover the Royal birth.

Media pens will also be set up at Buckingham Palace for when the framed Birth Announcement is being displayed on an easel in the forecourt.

Media Pens will also be set up outside Kensington Palace, the Cambridge's London Residence. Media will not be allowed to position here until the announcement that the Cambridges are leaving the hospital with the New Baby. This Media Pen will be opened for 72 hours after that Announcement.

These will be walk up positions: meaning the media isn't allowed to stay there, their length of stay will be determined by the Press officer at each place. This is to help manage demand.

Announcement: There will be 2 announcements, first that Kate has gone into labour and has been admitted into the hospital and second that Kate has given birth. 

These announcements will be made via Press Release and then over Social Media. The Queen will be the first to be told of the birth followed by members of the Royal and Cambridge extended family. The announcement of the Birth will include the Sex, Weight and Time of Birth. The Name will be released later. 

If the Baby is born after 1o PM (London Time), the announcement will be delayed until the next morning at 8 AM. 

A formal announcement of the Birth will be displayed on an easel outside Buckingham Palace. 

Prince George & Princess Charlotte: The Children may visit their little brother or sister at the hospital. This will depend on when the baby is born, how long they will stay in the hospital and how the kids and parents are feeling. 

Returning Home: The family will return to Kensington Palace for a few days, before returning to Anmer Hall.
