This child will be third in line to the throne after Charles and Prince William I here's a live look.
There's -- hospital nothing much going on there right now but very pregnant duchess of Cambridge is an out two days past.
We think past the due date nobody knows exactly when the due date is but.
We think we're right around that time and that's what's brought us here and we're told at the hospital will make an announcement of some sort when.
The duchess of Cambridge has checked -- and is admitted.
We're joined now by our old friend -- -- entertainment correspondent for sky news here in London hello there any home.
Go just to see you looking wonderful -- doesn't see innovative CEO.
Since it still what's gonna happen because we all know I heard of a helicopter outside and just a moment aren't maybe this is it I think everybody's gonna start -- on those lines right time.
I -- -- -- slap -- in the Central London and I you know the hearts of everything that goes off.
And every article -- people -- -- or is this it is that what you just shown that is outside the hospital is it is an amazing thing really because when you go down that.
There's talk of what -- media everybody just stood around nobody knows actually the next move what we do know always the moment the duchess is wheeled into hospital.
But when it really starts to kicking with -- coach -- what happens is.
The moment she gives.
To whoever that may be a boy or -- -- then there is a piece of white papers very traditional.
And it comes out of the hospital -- he's given to a waiting car.
That's better loan to Buckingham Palace the queen is informed.
And then the rest of the world including you -- that.
We'll know Afghanistan and -- car will be followed by a helicopter and that is -- that that will be sort of watching -- go to the streets kind of what we would call OJ Simpson style yeah.
As it goes to to make this big announcement.
When we find out what the sexes but nobody nobody can now anything until the queen has been officially imports what.
Interesting point he made because William and Catherine wants you there if you read everything in the papers and believe it.
They wanted to do the modern way and and be able to tell -- -- first.
You know she is the -- Monica she rules everything and there's no way you can get Crown Royal protocol so -- really not only just -- -- not as it is well post schools and she will -- the very first person to know.
And he's shaken that ring around people obviously you don't cover their friends but that they will want to do it also is closer to the second people.
Will be of course I'm Carol.
You know the -- -- there.
-- Michael Middleton.
In terms of the name.
That that the we know that in the past we haven't.
-- the name for sometimes up until a week after he is is that tradition to sort of have the baby and then to make a second.
Round of announcements when the name is is deciding.
-- that goes way back centuries and centuries most interesting as a mom yourself you know I think you probably shut down and the actual source of names and -- -- we'll probably do the same thing but to have a pool of names that they pick on some art remember that when William and Harry were born everybody sort.
That when he was a rather old fashioned name but you know he's not because we've had a king William a couple of centuries previous the -- just -- -- the names and I'm thinking about it George.
And to get about a day event for -- for boys.
And maybe -- David Beckham hasn't.
Visit India that is going to be him until I had a big that would be and they in the realm of possibility -- Victoria though forgot yes I mean you know that -- -- still so iconic you removed it and around the world.
I wouldn't be surprised it's kind of back in bogus will be.
She's not to iconic you know if if a young bride doesn't say enough I want to it but -- -- a quick break we're gonna hold you up because we have a lot more there and talk about -- some a lot of royal intrigue here and we will be right.
We are back in London with details on his entertainment correspondent for sky news here in -- so this baby is you know half.
-- -- right I mean this is this is a new situation.
You've got Carole Middleton -- and her husband Michael who are these -- grandparents to the future.
Heir to the throne how how does that go over around here is a big.
Yeah assuming valid point that -- because I want missile Wimbledon recently.
I thought it must be very strange for the middle since because.
That there S taxes it'll be the -- carnation -- consulate in a couple of let's -- -- that's not right behind these.
Very our -- royals and yet few years ago that they would never dreamt that have been in this position so I was thing to have an incredibly well.
And I think -- Middleton is a very driven.
Very clever lady.
And I don't think should ever be post up to -- sides.
I think maybe the problem if you look at the -- thousands of found they will come through -- was.
Quest for fame.
And I well and that's not a topic don't get into another time in terms of the name will there be a nod to the -- side of the family in this child's name.
But you know the -- IE he can only speculate -- -- that I wouldn't assume so.
When you look back to.
And of course you know at the queen's mother who was known of coax in and that is the cream of the you know when she married she was not that which -- common -- -- little bit of a common.
When she -- is the time it because you kind of relinquish.
A lot of what you want to do -- didn't want -- to say.
So we don't know the finer points it is almost like a contract that's what I call the four and.
So you would not expect that there might -- -- you know Victoria marry Elizabeth Middleton you know elite -- tossing and no family name -- as part of it.
No I don't see that until I think you'd be very much know a lot.
Hinges on this this child's.
Did you say don't put -- you know the most famous baby in the -- Because.
Obviously that -- the next in my unit that they're always looking this lineage and you have to think about that and console but you can't give it a name that's going to be.
And this is a very traditional couple.
And and we expect that that will be handled that traditionally as well now thank you summarize this will be seeing you throughout the course this week are waiting for some -- is.
