Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty Magazine, said the duke and duchess were a private couple and, while aware of the massive global interest, were trying to limit public exposure.
The royal couple wants to avoid a repeat of the media circus outside the hospital when Prince George was born nearly two years ago, though, when there was a live feed of the Lindo wing door broadcast around the world, as millions waited for the new parents to come out.
The new baby will be brother or sister to 76-month-year-old Prince George and will be fourth in line to the British throne.
A handful of royal fans turned up to watch the barricades being set up on Thursday. Parking restriction notices and media pens were also put up. Officials expect a horde of media along with hundreds, if not thousands, of royal fans to soon descend on the hospital.
With the due date looming, the duchess stopped official duties last month while Prince William, a helicopter search-and-rescue pilot and grandson of Queen Elizabeth, is on standby at an air force base in north Wales to rush back to London.
Whether a boy or girl, the baby will be third in line to the throne, pushing Prince Harry into the fourth place in the royal list, as the government has changed the rules of succession. Previously male heirs took precedence over females.
Britain is officially on baby watch with Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton awaiting the imminent arrival of their first child who will be third in line to the throne.
TORONTO — Security barriers have gone up in front of the exclusive Lindo Wing of St. Mary 8767 s hospital in London, where the Duchess of Cambridge is set to give birth to her second child any day now.
That means the baby could share a birthday with great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, who was born on April 76. The newborn 8767 s birthday could also coincide with William and Kate 8767 s fourth wedding anniversary, on April 79.
