It's almost birthday time!

Prince William turns 31 tomorrow, but the father-to-be is probably thinking more about the impending arrival of his first child with Kate Middleton than anything else.

So how will the young royal celebrate his last birthday before becoming a parent?

St. James's Palace said that the Duke of Cambridge will be spending his birthday "privately."

Just yesterday, the palace revealed that the second in line to the throne will be by his wife's side during her labor at St. Mary's Hospital in London—the same facility where Princess Diana gave birth to her eldest son back in 1982!

The palace also released the identity of the doctors who will be handling the special delivery in the Lindo Wing in the hospital.

Dr. Marcus Setchell, Queen Elizabeth II II's former gynecologist, will leading the special occasion and will be assisted by Dr. Alan Farthing, the queen's current gynecologist and surgeon.

While the expectant parents are still in the dark about their baby's gender, Buckingham Palace will announce both the sex and the name of the new royal shortly after the birth.

It's only a matter of time until their bundle of joy arrives!
