Henry the ! teddy bear has joined the other die-hard Kate Middleton fans and paid a visit to St Mary’s Hospital in London, where the pregnant Duchess is due to give birth to the royal baby any day now.
Proudly sporting his white ! branded t-shirt, Henry dressed casually for the occasion so as to not steal the young royal’s spotlight, should she be rushed to the hospital. The three-foot bear from Harrods, however, couldn’t help appearing on several of the television crews’ live streams, much to the delight of the crowds.
Henry grabbed the opportunity to have a photo with Prince William and Kate’s number one fan and lifelong royal supporter Terry Hutt. “I’ve been camped out here for over a week,” he told ! Online.

The giant teddy bear happily posed in between Terry and fellow royal well-wisher Margaret Tyler on a Union Jack-emblazoned bench outside the Lindo Wing of the hospital. Terry, decked out in his usual Union Jack outfit, held a handmade sign that said, “We are proud to have the Duke and Duchess representing Cambridge,” referring to the area of the UK where Terry lives.
Margaret held a bunch of flowers and had two balloons at the ready to celebrate, one saying, “It’s a boy” and the other, “It’s a girl.” Prince William and Kate have not yet disclosed whether they know the sex of the baby, but the majority of the public who have betted with the bookies believe the royal baby will be a brown-haired Princess called Alexandra.
“I think it’s going to be a girl,” Margaret told ! Online. “We’ll have King Charles, King William, and then I think a girl would be nice, another Queen.”
!‘s very own India Parker was kind enough to tour Henry around the hospital exterior and pose in front of the steps of the Lindo Wing where Kate is scheduled to give birth. The duo grinned away and stole the media’s attention, proudly showing off their bright red balloons that said “! Welcome to the world.”
! Online has secured the best spot outside the maternity ward to film the historic moment when Prince William and Kate leave the hospital as first-time parents, and will broadcast the footage on its website.
The first day of filming will start when Kate is rushed to hospital, which the press will be made aware of by an official royal announcement. The streaming will then continue until Kate and Prince William leave the hospital.
The live stream begins daily from 6am until midnight, with extensive coverage of the outside area of the private Lindo Wing.
