As the world awaits (and awaits!) the arrival of royal baby no. 2, there’s a group of royalist super fans camped outside of the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London, ready for the moment the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge goes into labor. These excited Brits are decked out, head-to-toe in Union Jack prints and wear shirts with Prince George’s face on them that read, “I Was Here First.” 

A palace aide tells Us, "The Duke and Duchess saw reports of them camped out and wanted them to know they were thinking of them."

So around 9 a.m. on Tuesday, April 28, the royal couple sent 10 cups of tea and two boxes of Danish pastries and croissants. The royalists immediately noticed that the boxes were tied with pink ribbons, wondering if that was a hint at the baby’s gender. 

One of the camped-out Brits, John Loughrey, tells Us Weekly, "We couldn't believe it. One of the officers dropped it off and said it was from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It was a lovely gesture, smashing."

Now five days past her April 23 due date, Kate Middleton is patiently waiting with her husband Prince William and their son Prince George at Kensington Palace. Unfortunately, Prince Harry will not be present for the baby’s birth as he returned to Australia yesterday to continue military training.
