We Can't Wait for the Second Royal Baby!

After Kate Middleton officially shared that her due date was mid- to late-April, the royal baby watch has increased!

As much as everyone loves Prince George, there's no denying most people hope it's a girl to balance out the boy. Some are hoping that a little princess will mean the name includes a sweet tribute to the late Princess Diana and to Kate Middleton's mom.

E! has also reported that staffers are prepping for the upcoming birth -- by putting up barricades and 24-hour no-parking signs outside St. Mary's Hospital in London, where Prince George was born. And some superfans have even started lining outside the hospital to get a glimpse of the baby, whenever he or she arrives!

In addition to have an extra bundle of joy to love, Kate will receive another perk for giving birth: a loyalty discount for choosing the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital for her labor and delivery.

And even The Week has began speculating how the second royal birth will affect markets, fashion, and food around the world.

One thing's for sure: William and Kate will have their hands full taking care of two kids under two, especially as Kate is planning to take a longer maternity leave.
