Kate Middleton, Prince William

The royal baby's arrival (any day now!) will be an event celebrated around the world.

Of course, when Kate Middleton and Prince William welcome their little prince or princess, those close to home will be commemorating the occasion as well. Their local supermarket in Llangefni, Anglesey, is even dedicated a parking spot to the royal parents and child!

Yes, per Manchester Evening News, the local Asda store (a British-owned chain of grocery stores) put the regal spot in a prime location close to the entrance. It's spray painted with three crown-wearing figures (presumably mama, daddy and baby) and says in bold letters "HRH Reserved."

The coveted spot is even taken care of by a royal guard—yes, like the kind protecting the palace!

Peter Ellis, Asda Llangefni's store manager, said: "The Duchess of Cambridge has graced the store with her regal presence several times before and we hope the addition of her own parking space will entice her and her little Prince or Princess of Cambridge back to Asda.

"As Kate's often busy with official duties, customers that fancy their own bit of royal treatment are welcome to park their own carriages there," he added.

Heathrow Free T

Too cute. And if you happen to be flying in to London's Heathrow Airport when the royal baby arrives, you're in for a treat! Per the Huffington Post, the first 1,000 people to arrive in each terminal will be given a commemorative "Celebrating a Very Special New Arrival" T-shirt and gift bag filled with Walkers shortbread biscuits and Twinings Tea.

Canada plans to light up Toronto's famous CN Tower with either pink or blue light (depending on the baby's gender), and Niagara Falls is reportedly getting a similar pink or blue hue. The Finnish government has already sent along a Finnish baby box, and Australia's Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, gave a precious knitted toy kangaroo to Kate and Will's future baby.

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were among the first to publicly congratulate the royal couple when they announced their pregnancy news back in December, so we have a feeling the White House might do a little something special for the royal baby's arrival as well.

Obviously, we'll all be wearing crowns and giving Champagne toasts to the new Prince or Princess of Cambridge!
