The world is celebrating now that the Royal baby is almost here. Nonetheless, the sex of the baby is still unknown and bets are still being made to guess the sex as well as potential names for the Royal Baby.

The New York Post reports the announcement will come through traditional and modern means:

… the first hint will come when a royal aide emerges from the hospital with a signed bulletin carrying the Buckingham Palace letterhead. The bulletin will be given to an official who will be driven to Buckingham Palace, where it will be posted on an easel in public view in front of the building. At the same time the bulletin is posted, there will be an official announcement on Twitter and the media will be formally notified. The document will give the baby’s gender, weight and time of birth.

And even then, it may be a week before we know the child’s name. The paparazzi and the public aren’t the only ones who have to wait on the Royal couple. Though the Royal family will find out the latest news before anyone else, they too must wait.
