July is underway, which can only mean one thing: The Royal Baby is almost here!

The media is whipped into a frenzy, with photographers already camping out in front of the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London, where the Duchess of Cambridge will give birth.

With the baby mania reaching a fever pitch, it's making us nostalgic for when it all began, on the fateful Monday morning back in December when Kate first made the announcement. Champagne bottles were popped, face morphs were made... and the media started talking and didn't stop for months.

Relive the past seven months of media oohing and aahing over the royal baby... and let's hope we never hear the words "royal baby bump" ever again.
