Royal Baby Watch: Officer Talks Kate Middleton's Rumored Due Date While the Media Places Some Bets

Everyone seems to be anxiously awaiting the royal baby's arrival (which is seriously any day now).

E! News' Melanie Bromley stopped to chat with London officer Constable Neville, one of the policemen in charge of keeping watch outside St. Mary's hospital, about Kate Middleton's rumored due date.

"I've heard the baby is due on Saturday," Neville tells E! News, adding that the media, who has already been camped out of the hospital for a few days now, haven't caused any trouble so far.

"I haven't had problems with the press, myself. Everyone here is staying within their boundaries and hasn't caused any problems. There will probably be more police…on Saturday I expect this to be a massive crowd, maybe like 10 more officers."

Meanwhile, Bromley met with NBC News' Tony Day, who gave us a glimpse of the media's life in London as they await the baby's arrival, and also revealed what they've been doing to entertain themselves while playing the waiting game.

"We've had a sweepstakes running for the date of the baby to be born," Day said. "I'm going 14th evening—we've cut it, evening, a.m., p.m.—and I've gone with boy, and then 15th, I've gone with a.m. girl to kinda switch it around a little bit."

Day also discussed some of his reservations about what could happen when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's child is born, including whether or not the media will greet the future prince or princess with respect or with loud chaos (he's hoping it's not the latter).

"it's gonna be hard to balance because they're gonna be holding a baby, photographers will be doing tests, they're gonna be shouting," he said. 

"I really hope they don't shout. I really hope that the baby doesn't come out and it's just this wall of noise. I'm really hoping we're kind of respectful for the baby. They come out and it'll be really interesting if it's quiet…we don't know how it's gonna be yet."
