Britain's Duchess of Cambridge's pre-baby beauty prep has apparently been completed.

  • Go To

The British royal is expected to give birth to her and husband Prince William's second child any day now and is already past her due date.

Instead of sitting around waiting for the new arrival, sources close to Catherine say she's been having a few pamper sessions.

"Kate had her hair done a couple of days ago, plus a mani-pedi, her legs waxed and a nice relaxing facial," a royal insider told American OK! magazine.

She has also been busy planning her outfit for when she leaves the hospital; a moment that will be captured by the world's media.

When she showed off Prince George for the first time in July 2013 Catherine chose a summery blue and white polka dot Jenny Packham dress.

"Kate just loves yellow. It's very spring-like for the new arrival. She's just going to decide after the baby's born what she's going to wear," the insider said.

"[She will] have plenty of music to listen to while she's in hospital," continued the insider.

Speculation surrounding the new tot's name has been rife, with UK betting company Ladbrokes revealing their punters are backing the name Charlotte.

The insider reveals Charlotte and Alice are Catherine and William's top choices for a girl along with James and Frederick for a boy. They also recently started to fancy Hugo.

"They just like it. Kate and Wills say they will decide on a name after the baby arrives and see which suits him or her best," the source explained.
