Prompted by previous speculation that Kate Middleton was due to give birth during the Queen's Coronation festival, July 11 - 14, royal watchers have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the royal baby since the first week of July.
But the seemingly endless waiting has led to new reports that Middleton is due later than expected. The Telegraph said Friday that the royal baby's due date was July 19, while a source told E! News on Sunday that Kate is "two to three days late."
There's also the drama surrounding Kate's location. When the duchess of Cambridge retreated to her parents home in Bucklebury, outside of London, last week, some wondered whether she had chosen to give birth outside the capital city. Kate returned to London on Friday, however, and is expected to wait out the rest of her pregnancy at Kensington Palace.
Hoping to capitalize on the media's growing restlessness, the Sun hired William and Kate look-alikes to fool reporters news crews waiting outside the Lindo wing of St. Mary's Hospital, the royal family's chosen birth place, on Friday.
“The foreign journalists were going crazy. They were zooming in on my belly and someone asked to touch it. We were getting mobbed," Tom, a.k.a. Fake William, said of the prank.
