It is not yet knownwhat the purpose of their visit was, but if they took Prince George with them,the royal tot may well have been enjoying a swimming lesson in the palace pool.He’s known to swim regularly at his grandmother’s London palace.

Kate, 33, is thoughtto be a few days overdue with her and William's second baby, and her second tripto Buckingham Palace in as many days has led royal watchers to believe that shewon't go into labor just yet. The pregnant Duchess was said to be drivingherself into the palace, with William also in the car.

On Tuesday, Kate wasspotted at the wheel bringing George, along with his Spanish nanny Maria TeresaTurrion Borrallo, for a dip in the pool. The trio was joined by their security detail.

Last summer Katerevealed that her 21-month-old toddler is a big fan of swimming and that sheregularly takes George to the pool at Buckingham Palace. On this occasion,however, it was Maria who looked after the future king in the water.

Speaking to formerworld champion swimmer James Hickman, Kate was overheard telling the athletethat George "loves the water and he grabs things to splash with."

The royal darling isset to become a big brother any day now to a little prince or princess.

William, 32, and his wife Kate have chosen to leave the gender of their secondchild a surprise, just as they did before George was born.

Fans of the couplehave been waiting patiently outside St. Mary's Hospital where Kate is set togive birth. Ready for a boy or girl, they have come prepared with signsreading, "It's a Prince" and "It's a Princess."

While Kate has previouslysaid that her due date was "mid-to-late April", it looks increasinglylikely that the baby will arrive at the beginning of May. Parking restrictions outsidethe hospital have been extended an additional five days until May 5, from April30 that was on the original signs.
