Is Kate In Labor? (Finally?!)

Reports say the most watched waddling woman in the world, Princess Kate, and Prince William left her parent's home in Bucklebury a short time ago by car, leading the world to believe the big moment may finally be here!

Could the #GreatKateWait finally be coming to an end? Could we all be about to be a part of (well, not exactly a part of, but we can act like we're family, can't we?!) the most talked about birth since, well, probably Prince William? The Twittersphere has been exploding (think #RoyalBabyWatch) all week as the world thought Mama-to-be Kate was due on July 13th.

Now, the Daily Telegraph reports that the actual due date is today. According to the paper, a well-placed source says a small group of hospital staff at St Mary's, where the heir to the throne will be born, were put on notice that they had to "tee total" for a month before delivery, you know, just in case the future ruler of their country wanted to make a grand entrance. The source added: "They were told the due date was July 19, meaning they couldn't drink from June 19 onwards."

The idea that the big moment may finally here was amped up after Queen Elizabeth apparently rushed out of an event yesterday without saying a word. Everyone, of course, believes she may have received word that her great grandchild may be ready to face his or her future.

It's a good thing, too. When asked earlier this week if the Queen is hoping for a boy or a girl, she reportedly told a 10-year-old girl: "I don't think I mind but I would very much like it to arrive because I'm going on holiday soon."

Hey, an 87-year-old majesty needs her vaca time in Scotland.... C'mon baby....

Oh, by the way, whenever His or Her Royal Highness is here, get ready to call him/her HRH Prince or Princess of Cambridge. The Palace released the official title for the third in succession to the throne.

We're on #BabyWatch... and will keep you posted.
