More details are surfacing in the royal baby rundown. 

It appears Kate Middleton has had a thing for hot vegetable curries and Haribo sweets during her pregnancy, according to the Daily Mail.

After Middleton popped into Peach's Spar convenience store in Bucklebury, England and told store owner Chan Shingadia she "had a craving," he made her a batch of vegetable curry with rice and flatbreads, and said she has been a regular visitor to the store since then, last taking a trip there a couple of weeks ago.

While Middleton is due to deliver her first child with Prince William July 13 or 14, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge haven't chosen a name for their baby just yet, according to the site.

Since the royal duo asked not to be told the baby's gender, they reportedly have a "shortlist of boys and girls' names" but won't make the final decision until the baby is born.

Once the royal baby is born, there could be a change in tradition in terms of how Queen Elizabeth II is informed.

While it is general protocol for the Queen to be notified via an official hand-delivered notice to the Buckingham Palace, Prince William may change that up and call Queen Elizabeth II on an encrypted phone instead.

In terms of Middleton's delivery, the mom-to-be is set to give birth at the five-story Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London, where a suite costs about $13,000. The front windows of that wing have reportedly been frosted to prevent anyone from getting a sneak peek. 

Middleton's sister, Pippa, and her mom Carole are expected to be in the delivery room with the couple, but the Queen will be waiting at home for the news and the baby will be brought to her.

The couple's private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, will then inform Prime Minister David Cameron, among others, and an official notice announcing the baby's birth will be placed at Buckingham Palace's gates to alert the public.
