Prince William left pregnant wife Kate Middleton’s side to indulge in a day of polo with Prince Harry over the weekend.

The Prince joined his royal brother for the high-energy Kent & Curwen Royal Charity Polo Cup, held in honour of charities Tusk Trust and Sentable at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Berkshire estate.

Despite the extreme heat, the pair headed up opposing teams to battle it out on the private pitch, cheered by onlookers.

But Kate Middleton was noticeably absent.

While Duchess is usually spotted waving her hubby on from the sidelines, it was all change over the weekend, as she waited for the arrival of the royal baby.

After numerous false starts and rumours she had gone into labour, Kate Middleton’s baby declined to make an appearance this weekend, despite reportedly being due on Saturday.

With news Prince William has a helicopter on stand-by ready to make it to his wife’s side when she goes into labour, we spoke to exclusively to BBC cameraman Tony Dolce, who revealed a little of what will happen when Kate Middleton actually does give birth.

When we hear that the Duchess of Cambridge has left for the hospital, a journalist will be sent over to St Mary’s in Paddington to present in front of the camera outside and will go live straightaway,’ he said.

He added that he’ll be stationed outside Buckingham Palace all week, ready for the big announcement.

When Kate has been admitted, Prince William is there, and the baby arrives safely, a document signed by a medical professional will be driven to Buckingham Palace and erected outside within thirty minutes of its birth.

Tony says: ‘We’ll be set up to film this, even it if happens during the night. The notice will announce the sex, weight and the time of birth.’

We can’t wait!
