It seems like the Queen is also getting a little impatient for the arrival of baby Cambridge.

During a public outing at the Wiggonby Church of England Primary School, the Queen was asked if she preferred a baby boy or girl by school children.

"I don't think I mind. I would very much like it to arrive. I'm going on holiday," she replied.

Royal fever is on and with another possible delayed due date of July 23, the rest of the Royal family is also waiting.

Some family members were "waiting by the telephone" for the good news, as TV crews and paparazzi from all over the world wait outside St. Mary's Hospital for the heir-to-be, according to Reuters.

And the excitement continues even over in Canada: Toronto will light up the CN Tower blue or pink, Niagara Falls will also glow the same colour and in Victoria, there's even a guest book for the royal couple.

But with all this excitement also comes pressure. Reports say Kate Middleton is also terrified of "letting everyone down," or being compared to her husband's mother Princess Diana.

At this point, we still don't know the sex of the royal baby, some like Catherine's uncle, are certain the baby will be a girl.
