We can’t wait for the arrival of Prince George’s sibling but it seems two US magazines couldn’t contain their excitement any longer.
Life&Style and OK! USA announced on their front covers that Kate Middleton had not only given birth but that she’d had a girl and there had been a royal feud to boot.
Kate is expecting to give birth in mid to late April and, although babies are not always the most punctual of creatures, we can confirm she has definitely not given birth yet.
Life&Style announced “it’s a girl for Kate” even though it’s not clear the Duchess herself knows the baby’s sex.
The dramatic front page also told readers there was a last-minute cesarean scare for the princess.
The magazine fuelled intrigue about relationships within the Royal Family claiming to reveal “who was banned from the hospital after blowup”.

OK! USA went even further claiming Kate’s mum went “crazy in the waiting room”.
It is difficult to imagine the serene Carole Middleton losing her cool but especially not while waiting for her grandchild’s arrival.
They even described prince George meeting his baby sister for the first time, although that meeting is sure to be “cute” it hasn’t actually happened yet.
But both seemed convinced Kate had not only given birth but that the event was a drama-filled one.
The Daily Mirror’s Royal Correspondent Victoria Murphy said: “These front pages are absolutely hilarious as Kate clearly hasn’t had her baby.
“We saw her out and about twice earlier this week and she is scheduled to do another engagement next Friday before she goes on her maternity leave.
“Take it from me, she’s definitely still pregnant.
“And trust me, when this baby is born there won’t be any missing the news – it will be everywhere.
“So until you see Twitter explode and start reading wall-to-wall coverage on the Mirror website about the birth, you can be confident it definitely hasn’t happened.”
But the fact that the birth is still some time away does not mean it has not attracted plenty of interest.
Elizabeth and Charlotte are the bookies’ favourites for a girl’s name, with Philip and Arthur top of the list if the Royal baby is a boy.
A whopping 80% of punters have predicted the baby will be a girl but nothing has been revealed – despite these US front pages.
Punters have also heavily backed an early birth, with April 3, 4 and 5 attracting a lot of money.
Prince George was born at St Mary’s Hospital in London and it’s likely that his younger sibling will also be born in the same maternity suite.
