The Royal Baby Watch Has Officially Begun in London

It’s not every day a new member of the Royal Family comes into the world and fans are already getting excited. With the Duchess Catherine of Cambridge—known to us commoners as Kate Middleton—due with her third child soon, Royal Baby watch is already underway!

Despite the fact that she still has about two more weeks to go, some especially dedicate fans have already lined up at the hospital waiting for the first glimpse of Royal Baby number three. As PEOPLE reports, 83-year-old royal superfan Terry Hutt is already standing watch outside of the doors of the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London.

Kate Middleton is not set to give birth to her third baby until April 30, but that hasn’t stopped the baby fervor from growing. Hutt and his friends have been camped out in front of the hospital with signs and banners to welcome the new little prince or princess since April 9 and they’ll be there until the baby makes his or her appearance.

Hutt might be the most dedicated of royal family fans, but he’s definitely not the only one on baby watch. Fans across the United Kingdom and the world are waiting and tweeting about it. Posting with the hashtag #RoyalBabyWatch fans are betting not only on what day and time the baby will arrive but also whether it will be a boy or a girl and what the name will be.

(Prince William might have already given that one away, however, when he recently made an off the cuff remark about the baby’s name.)

The world will be waiting and watching for a baby that is already famous, but like any kid with a new family member on the way, it’s likely Prince George and Princess Charlotte who are the most anxious to meet their newest sibling.
