Enjoying the sun, the world's media camps outside the Lindo wing of St Mary's Hospital in London. The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to give birth to the third in line to the throne any day now. It's not only the press who are patiently waiting for the arrival of the baby of Prince William and his wife Catherine, commonly known as Kate. 78-year-old Terry Hutt has been sleeping on a bench outside the hospital for over a week. He's no stranger to such hardships, having made sure he got a front row seat for almost every royal occasion since he met the Queen Mother and King George VI when he was four-years-old. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ROYAL SUPERFAN TERRY HUTT, WHO HAS BEEN CAMPED OUT SINCE WEDNESDAY JULY 10, SAYING: "They are concerned a little bit about my age, and the heat of course. They are more or less telling the police to look after me, and the hospital. I'm in the right place here - if I faint, I can go inside. Outpatient!" The Duchess is believed to be at her parents secluded home in the village of Bucklebury, 50 miles west of London.
