#TheGreatKateWait is officially on and if you couldn’t tell, we’re pretty pumped here at Babble.
In July of 2013, the world waited with bated breath, staring at a door for days on end, for the highly anticipated birth of Prince George. Royal baby fever swept not just the United Kingdom, but countries everywhere. And it didn’t exactly die down when we finally met the future King of England.
This time around, things have been a bit calmer. But still, the crowds have begun to form outside St. Mary’s Hospital. They’re camping out all night — some going on 12 days! — and clutching their signs, dressed head-to-toe in English flags and other paraphernalia.
To reward them for their patience (Kate is several days overdue), William and Kate did what we can imagine few royals doing: they sent the fans breakfast.
Around 9 am this morning, two men “knocked” on a tent and said, “Good morning, we have a present from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge,” Maria Scott, told People magazine. That present? Ten cups of coffee and assorted croissants and danishes — wrapped in a white box with pink ribbon. (Just saying.)
A palace source told People, “They saw they had been camped out and wanted to send over some breakfast.”
Well, if that isn’t the sweetest thing ever, we don’t know what is.
In return, royal watcher Kathy Martin says they plan to give the couple a “really lovely thank you card.”
If you’ll excuse us, we suddenly have a hankering for some tea and scones.More On
