Now Royal Baby number 2 watchers can catch some sleep after waiting on baited breathe to discover whether the royal couple’s 21-month old son, Prince George would be a big brother to a girl or boy.
The new baby bounces ahead in line in succession to the throne ahead of her uncle Prince Harry! She follows her grandfather Prince Charles, dad and brother.
The former Kate Middleton reportedly wil be taking a longer maternity leave from her Royal duties to be with both babies. William will take two weeks leave from his job as a military emergency helicopter pilot.
