Kate Middleton Hospital Intruder: Masked Man Tries To Sneak Into Hospital Dressed As Prince William

It goes without saying we're beyond excited that Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their first child (and that we're wishing the Duchess of Cambridge a speedy recovery from Hyperemesis Gravidarum).

And, yes, we understand the paps are swarming the King Edward VII Private Hospital to snap the first shots of the Royal baby bump.

What we don't understand is this: early Tuesday morning a man wearing what looks like a Prince William face mask (made of cardboard, no less) tried to sneak into Kate's hospital (we can only assume he wanted to congratulate the Duchess in person).

It suffices to say the man was promptly escorted away from the London location by police -- and relative calm was restored to the area -- thank goodness.

The "real" Prince William arrived at the hospital to spend time with Kate mere moments later.
