No media circus for royal baby, Kate and William 'won't introduce baby outside hospital'
Prince William and Kate Middleton will be keeping the second royal birth under wraps.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their second child in two weeks time and unlike the birth of Prince George in July 2013, there will be no media circus and big introduction to the world.
Kate will give birth in the same hospital where she delivered her eldest son, the private Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in London.
Security restrictions have been put in place to ensure it's business as usual for the hospital, for the duration of the royal stay, according to People magazine.

After Prince George's birth, the hordes of photographers and reporters waited outside the hospital for days for 'the big reveal', but they'll be adopting a different approach with the new arrival, including announcing the baby's gender.
"[They are} grateful for the warm wishes they have received from people throughout the U.K. and indeed around the world over the last few months," a palace aide told the publication.
"They know that people are excited that Prince George will soon have a little brother or sister and it means a great deal to them that so many will be celebrating this important moment for their family."
Prince William is currently 'on standby' and won't be further than two hours from central London and it's also reported there is a helicopter available should he need it.
Palace officials will confirm when Kate has gone into labour, entered hospital and when the baby has been born.
It has not yet been decided if Prince George will visit his sibling in hospital or at their apartment in Kensington Palace, before moving on to their property in Amner Hall, Norfolk.
