Grandma Will Be Helping! 2 of 8
Carole Middleton, the mother of Kate Middleton, will have an important role in the royal baby's life. Not only that, but Kate and the baby will move in with her mom after the baby's birth. Kate's uncle Gary stated that, "The fact that they're taking the baby to Carole's for the first six weeks is genius. Carole's a brilliant mum she is 10 years older than me and practiced on me and I think it's the right thing to do. It will take the pressure off Kate."

Uncle Prince Harry is apparently very excited about his upcoming nephew. And we say nephew because he reportedly has been telling everyone that the royal baby will be a boy!

The baby has yet to be born but the child already has a title bestowed upon them by their great grandmother, the Queen. "The royal couple's child will officially be known as His or Her Royal Highness Prince or Princess of Cambridge," the Palace announced.
The REAL Due Date…Maybe! 5 of 8
The royal baby due date has come and gone, but we now may know the NEW due date for the baby. This week Camilla Parker Bowles, step-grandma to the heir-to-be, said, "We are all just waiting by the telephone." She added, "We are hopeful that by the end of the week he or she will be here."
Where the Baby Will Be Born 6 of 8
The royal baby will be born at St. Mary's Hospital in London, which The Guardian calls, "one of the most exclusive private maternity facilities in Britain." The Lindo Wing of the hospital is a "dedicated private facility within St. Mary's Hospital that provides modern, consultant-led world-class care as part of one of the U.K.'s leading teaching hospital groups." And it has some royal significance. Both Prince William and Prince Harry were born there.

After the baby is born it is being reported that Kate, Prince William, and the baby will stay at the Queen's estate at Sandringham, in Norfolk, Balmoral in Scotland (pictured above). But there is also word that they may go to the Middletons' home in the village of Bucklebury, in Berkshire.
