Hundreds of royal fans have descended upon the streets of Windsor as the excitement for the arrival of Baby Sussex intensifies, amid speculation that the birth is imminent.
Union jacks, royal posters and themed outfits are common sights in the picturesque market town in Berkshire, where some royalists have been waiting for an update from the palace for weeks.
But Buckingham Palace’s decision this week to cancel The Duke of Sussex’s visit to Amsterdam because of “logistical arrangements” left supporters wondering what was happening behind the palace walls and increased the speculation that the birth is imminent.
The Duke, who terminated the trip just two days after it was announced, is now free to support his significantly overdue wife at their new home of Frogmore Cottage, where it is understood the baby will be delivered.
The 37-year-old reportedly revealed that she was due at the end of April or early May during an engagement in Birkenhead earlier this year.
But the couple have kept the details around the birth private, with aides saying they hope to announce when the duchess has gone into labour followed by details of the baby’s sex and weight later.
