It seems Queen Elizabeth is getting a bit impatient as she waits in a heatwave for the birth of her third great-grandchild.

The queen said she hopes Kate Middleton gives birth soon.

Asked by a schoolgirl at a public event yesterday whether she was hoping for a boy or a girl, the queen said:

"I don't think I mind. I would very much like it to arrive. I'm going on holiday."

The queen is shortly expected to begin her annual summer holiday in Scotland.

Prince William and his wife are expecting the birth of their first child, who will be third in line to the throne. The baby is due any day now.

William and Kate say they do not know the baby's gender.
