C'mon, Royal Baby—the Queen's Going on Vacay!

Oh, Grandmummy!

As the world continues to wait with baby's breath (OK, baited breath) for the royal baby to make its grand appearance, great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II is saying that her patience is running a little thin.

At an event in Northwest England today, a child asked the queen, "Do you want Kate's baby to be a boy or girl?"

"I don't think I mind," the queen replied, according to ABC News. "I would very much like it to arrive. I'm going on holiday."

Wait, what?!

While the queen is planning to make a trip to her estate at Balmoral in Scotland for her annual summer break, according to ABC News, we wonder if she'd be willing to push it back a bit for her future great-grandchild.

After all, some British women are waiting to name their own children.
