Prince William and his wife Kate have asked seven people to be godparents to their son, Prince George, who will be christened at a major royal family gathering Wednesday, palace officials said.
A flood of last-minute bets on Britain’s royal baby poured in on Monday even as Prince William’s wife Catherine was in hospital in labour.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy has seen her endure illness, media frenzies, bikini shot scandals and a prank that ultimately ended in tragedy.
The wait is almost over. News that Prince William’s wife Kate is in labor invigorated the makeshift encampment outside St. Mary’s Hospital — a melange of journalists, photographers, curious onlookers and a few die-hard royalists.
The birth of Prince William and his wife Catherine’s first baby will be the culmination of their relationship which began as friendship, blossomed into love and saw them marry in a fairytale wedding.
