Paparazzi have been camped outside St. Mary’s hospital for weeks in anticipation of the royal baby, and it’s finally go time.
After Kate Middleton finally checked into the Lindo Wing early this morning, the scene outside of the hospital is a zoo, naturally.
Photographers are lined up and ready to get the first shots:
Broadcast media from all over the world are giving live reports from across the street from the exclusive Lindo Wing.
The Lindo Wing, where Kate Middleton will give birth and where Prince William was born 31 years ago, is being closely guarded by British police officers.
There is extra security all around the hospital.
The surrounding streets have been blocked off for weeks.
But of course the royal couple didn’t enter through the media mob when checking in early this morning. Instead, it is speculated they arrived through St. Mary hospital’s more private Cambridge entrance.
