Media organizations began toconverge along with royal watchers weeks ago as parking restrictions and mediapens have been in place since Monday April 13. It's unlikely that the 'Great Kate Wait' will last toomuch longer though as parking restrictions around the hospital were only putinto place for the month of April and Prince William has already gone on paternity leave.

Unlike the birth of Prince George, there are more restrictions this time around including the fact that newsof Kate's condition will only be officiallyannounced by Kensington Palace between the hours of 8 am and 10 pm UKtime.

So far nocomment has been made on the royal baby on the official Twitter accounts of the monarchy, but the world is keeping up with the commotion at the hospital byfollowing the hashtags #RoyalBaby #RoyalBabyWatch #GreatKateWait and #Lindo. One group in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is even hosting a charity quilting bee as they await the arrival of the royal baby.
