As the world waits for the arrival of the royal baby; the question remains:  Prince or Princess?

There are quite a few traditions that goes along with giving birth to the golden bundle of joy.  First; The Queen will be notified via a sealed envelope.  A royal announcement will be posted on the "wooden easel" outside of the palace with details of the height, weight, and of course;
Prince or Princess.

Kate will most likely stay a day in the hospital after becoming a mommy, then before leaving, will pose with William and new child on the steps of St. Mary's Hospital just as his mother, Princess Diana, did with him (seen below).

Let's hope the advanced media coverage we have now compared to when William and Harry were born will allow their family traditions to go smoothly.
