Royal fans who have spent more than a week camping outside the Lindo Wing where the Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth received a special delivery direct from Kensington Palace.
Luxury pastries were dropped off to the group of five at their tents as a thank you for their support, as anticipation of the birth of Kate and William's second child mounts.
Two men arrived with a box of these wonderful pastries and said they were from the palace as a gift from the Duke and Duchess to say thank you for our support. It was really special - and we noticed straight away that they were wrapped in pink ribbons. We think it's a sign they are having a girl.
Royal watchers keen for a first glimpse of the royal baby have already started camping outside St Mary's Hospital in West London.
The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to give birth any day now, with her due date reported to be April 25. But, if you believe the odds, the new baby could be born on St George's Day - April 23 is now the favourite, alongside the reported due date, at odds of 9-1.
New parking restrictions have been put in place in front of the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington west London, where the Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth.
The yellow signs cite "Special Event" as the reason for the suspension in front of the Lindo Wing and come into force tomorrow and run until April 30 - meaning Kate is expected to have had her second child by this date.
Kate is returning to the exclusive, private Lindo wing after the successful delivery of Prince George just under two years ago. Press will not be allowed to gather outside the Lindo Wing until after she has been admitted.
