Well, it’s 6:14am and it looks like it was a good thing I went to bed when I did, since I actually didn’t miss anything apart from celebrations…
… and more waiting!! Sources have the new couple leaving tonight after 6pm BST or Wednesday morning. This means I actually have time to get dressed and get to work without another event. I think.
Their Royal Highnesses have released a statement, though, about their experience in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital:
We would like to thank the staff at the Lindo Wing and the whole hospital for the tremendous care the three of us have received.
We know it has been a very busy period for the hospital and we would like to thank everyone – staff, patients and visitors – for their understanding during this time.
I don’t approve of The Sun in many respects, but my dear friend (and fellow blogger) Catherine said she bought this newspaper for me and I think it’s worth having.
Regarding names–the name of the infant prince won’t be announced until the Royal couple leaves the hospital (at the very least) or, at most, next week. So keep your bets in place and stay tuned!
UPDATE: Well, it pays to sit and eat breakfast while watching a live feed of closed doors—I saw Michael and Carole Middleton exit a car and enter the hospital!!! I suspect they will be there for a short time, so maybe I actually CAN get to work without anything else happening…
