The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are excitedly awaiting the arrival of their first child.

As pregnant Kate comes closer to her due date she is ‘feeling great’, a family source tells US Weekly.
The Duchess, who went on maternity leave in mid-June, has been preparing for the couple’s first child in recent weeks. The mum-to-be has been spotted in baby boutiques and most recently was spotted leaving an antique shop. The couple will move into Kensington Palace after the birth of the Queen’s third great-grandchild.
“She’s full of energy and really rather used to the bump!” the source adds.
In recent days, the world’s media has gathered outside the London hospital where Kate is due to give birth. Members of the press, including journalists and paparazzi have started camping outside the St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.
Last month, Prince William and Kate revealed they would be following in the footsteps of William’s parents in their choice of hospital.
Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, welcomed both Prince William and Prince Harry in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital, and Clarence House confirmed Kate is planning to follow their lead.
“The Birth of the Duke and Duchess’s baby should be a joyous occasion, a St James’s Palace spokesman told The Telegraph. “We recognise there is a long and happy history of people producing souvenirs to mark Royal occasions.”
