How will the birth announcement be made?
— Once the baby is born, doctors will sign a foolscap-size document, with the palace letterhead, giving the baby's gender and time of birth. It will be terse and formal — the language is dictated by protocol — and will read something like "The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a prince / princess." It may also provide the infant's weight.
— A royal aide will give this bulletin to an official, whose task is to carry the news from the hospital to the palace. It's going to be a suspenseful short journey, about 15 minutes, and the drive will almost certainly be broadcast live to millions of television viewers worldwide.
— Once at the palace, the official will post the bulletin on a wooden easel placed in the frontcourt for the public to see.
— At the same time, the monarchy's official Twitter and Facebook accounts will announce the news online.
