Royal Baby No. 2 is on the way, as Kate Middleton has gone into early stages of laborĀ after missing her due date by an entire week!

The Duchess of Cambridge arrived with her husband at St. Mary's Hospital in London at 6 a.m. local time on Saturday, May 2, and was taken to the facility's private Lindo Wing where she will give birth.

Before the Duchess even went into labor, crowds had already began to gather in the cold weather outside and across the street from the hospital, with some royal family fans camping out for over a week for a chance to witness history.

In a show of kindness, Will and Kate sent out a sweet gesture to their admirers on Tuesday, by having coffee, pastries and croissants delivered to the hungry, excited campers.

Those swept up in the second round of the royal baby craze have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new-born Will and Kate first announced they were expecting on Sept. 8.

The only people who have been waiting longer are the royal couple themselves, who have been preparing for their second child for months. Kate wrapped up all her official public appearances at the end of March, and since then, the couple have been getting ready for the big day.

While it seems like all of England will be turning out for a chance to see the exciting new addition to the family, there's one important person who won't be able to attend: Prince Harry.

Will's younger brother just left for Australia, and has an official tour of New Zealand that will keep him from seeing his new niece or nephew until the middle of May.

While the royal couple have not yet divulged the gender of their baby-to-be, many are hoping -- and even betting -- that the couple will welcome a daughter.

The couple's first child, Prince George, who turns two on July 22, was the subject of the first royal baby craze that swept the world in 2013.
