There is speculation that the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge could be induced to bring along a speedy delivery, but today Duchess Kate seemed relaxed, as a new photo was taken of her driving herself after a visit to Buckingham Palace. It's believed that she was taking Prince George for a swimming lesson in the Buckingham Palace pool.

Whenever Duchess Kate goes into labor it is only a 10-minute drive from Kensington Palace to St. Mary's Hospital in London.

While we don't know when the baby will arrive, it is clear that Prince Harry will not be able to be there when it happens. He left for Australia on Monday to serve Army duty and will not return until May to see his second niece or nephew.

The royals have kept the baby's gender under wraps, but it seems that most people are keeping their fingers crossed for a girl this time around, with some even placing bets.
