Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal baby has been born, into a digital world. As the world continues to wait for the Duchess of Cambridge to give birth, the royal baby has burst into existence on Wikipedia.
An entry for the “Child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge“, which describes the future king or queen as “the world’s most famous baby,” has already been viewed close to 95,000 times since it was created on June 27.
The page details everything from the announcement of Kate’s pregnancy to cultural and political reactions to the unborn child, but readers searching for hints about the baby’s date of birth will be left disappointed.
“[The baby] is due to be born in July 2013,” the page says.
While the wait has been torturous for tired camera crews camped in front of London’s St Mary’s Hospital, where Kate is expected to give birth, the rest of us can spend our time checking out the future royal baby’s Wikipedia page, which states:
According to Palace officials, the Duke and Duchess have chosen not to find out the sex of their child prior to the birth. The birth is expected to take place in the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, London – the same hospital in which Prince William and his brother, Prince Harry, were born to Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1982 and 1984 respectively. The Queen’s former gynaecologist, Marcus Setchell, is expected to deliver the child assisted by his successor, Alan Farthing. The Duchess intends to give birth naturally.
