Queen Elizabeth Will Not Wake Up for Birth of Royal Baby

The second Royal Baby is almost here and the nation of Great Britain couldn't be more excited. Tourist shops are already gearing up for the little sibling of Prince George by stocking their shelves with memorabilia to commemorate the birth. But one person who won't be rushing to be there for the actual birth should it happen in the wee hours of the night? The Queen herself.

That's right, Queen Elizabeth II, who turned 89 this year, will not be awoken from her royal slumber until a more decent hour. Traditionally, both sides of the family are told of the news before the public and a royal source tells People, "I wouldn't think anyone will be waking the queen before 8 a.m." With Prince George's birth, the royal family waited four hours to announce that Kate had given birth.

Meanwhile, the nation is still taking bets on the gender of the latest addition to the royal family. Reportedly, even Will and Kate are in the dark, although many are hoping for a bouncing baby girl. Only time will tell!
