Poor Prince William is unable to be at his wife's side during the last days of her pregnancy as he is stationed in Wales. Thus, he's been staying at their home in Anglesey. Not to worry though, as the Duke of Cambridge has a helicopter waiting for him whenever the time comes for his wife to go into labor.

In Hello! magazine, Prince William's cousin Peter Phillips told CNN:

They will make great parents and it’s great to be able to welcome another child into the family, if not from a selfish perspective for my two girls to be able to grow up with a playmate.

Phillips was also noted in Instyle saying:

He or she will be under a great deal of scrutiny. That being said, both of the baby's parents are used to that and I think there is the structure and infrastructure around them all to be able to protect them to a certain extent.

If you think the Royal baby is a very lucky child, share it!
