Cape Town – The time has come for preparations to be made as the second royal baby is due any day now and everything is to go according to plan.

As the world awaits the birth of Prince George’s sibling, the exclusive Lindo wing at St Mary’s Hospital has started prepping for the big day.

Us Weekly reports parking restriction signs officially went up on Tuesday, to warn drivers where to park and where not to park.

The restrictions are to stay in place from 15 April until 30 April.

Duchess Kate will be under the care of the lead gynecologist to the royal household, Guy Thorpe-Beeston, from when she goes into labour.

Us Weekly went on to report the proceedings for fans and press to follow.

To avoid the big crowd of people that stood outside the hospital when Prince George was on his way, the Palace will allow absolutely no press to take their allocated spots until the Duchess is in fact in labour.


The allocated markings will be made later this week as the big day draws near.

Meanwhile Kate Middleton and Prince William have been doing their own preparations as the Duchess of Cambridge marked her last official appearance at a charity event in London last month.

Prince William will reportedly take two weeks of paternity leave when the baby arrives.

He and Kate are planning to spend the first few days after the birth at their London residence, Kensington Palace, before travelling to Anmer Hall in Norfolk, a mansion on Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham estate where they have set up home.

The birth will be announced both on the official Kensington Palace Twitter account and in the traditional way - with a royal bulletin displayed on an ornate easel in Buckingham Palace's forecourt.
