Prince Harry & Ms. Meghan Markle are incredibly grateful for the goodwill they have received since their engagement, & have asked that anyone who might wish to mark the occasion of their wedding considers giving to charity, instead of sending a gift. https://t.co/lzfrRmoeUv pic.twitter.com/nxrTZtIKBY— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) April 9, 2018
The charities chosen are CHIVA (Children's HIV Association), Crisis, Myna Mahila Foundation (which Meghan wrote about for TIME last year), Scotty's Little Soldiers, StreetGames, Surfers Against Sewage, and The Wilderness Foundation UK.
#royalbabywatch starts in earnest today for #cambridge3 👶🏼 as parking suspended outside Lindo Wing until 30 April. #kate & Wills don’t know the baby’s sex, as before, but although Kate is due on 23 April, worth remembering that both George & Charlotte were quite late! 🍼 👶🏼 pic.twitter.com/ShVzK2r82R— Emily Andrews (@byEmilyAndrews) April 9, 2018
Parking has been suspended and the media has officially set up outside the Lindo Wing, where Kate is due to give birth.

The delivery will be led by the same team that helped Kate give birth to Charlotte. The media will not be allowed to stay at the hospital until Kensington Palace has announced she's in labor. Then, they'll announce the baby's sex, time of birth, and weight. An easel will also go up announcing the news. Following that, the two of them will leave the hospital, giving the world the first glimpse of the newborn. The name will be announced in the following days. However, there's some restrictions to this - if Kate gives birth in the middle of the night, an announcement won't be made until 9:00AM UK time (4:00AM EST). The latest an announcement would be made is 10:00PM UK time (5:00PM EST).
