Harry spotted at royal birth hospital?

2013-07-16 15:54
London - Photographers and journalist camped out in front of St Mary’s Hospital in London almost got very excited on Tuesday when "Prince Harry" showed up on the steps of the Lindo Wing where Duchess Catherine is due to give birth.

While the whole world anxiously awaits the arrival of the baby prince or princess a Harry look-a-like and a giant teddy made a special appearance and entertained the crowds.

Harry's doppelgänger arrived decked out in full military regalia, while his furry buddy sported a Union Jack scarf and crown.

Both came bearing gifts to children being treated at the hospital, which they carted out on a wagon wrapped in swaths of Union Jacks.

Apart from fake Harry's appearance there has been no official word on Kate's due date. The palace has refused to give a running commentary, meaning the final days of the world's most scrutinised pregnancy will play out in private.

While the monarchy is on Twitter, the birth will be announced to the world in the traditional method - a notice on an easel in the Buckingham Palace forecourt.
