Armed with Union flags, adoring signs and food supplies to last for days, the royalists were in jubilant spirits despite no sign of the royal sprog.
Staff at the private Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital have erected barriers in anticipation of the world’s media who will descend on the hospital once Kate goes into labour.
And no one is more excited for the newest addition of the Windsor family than devoted fan Terry Hutt, 79, from Weston-super-Mare.
Dressed in his eye-catching Union flag short, suit jacket and sunglasses, the fanatic is prepared to wait the 12 days he spent camping out for Prince George’s birth.
Terry met Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother as a young boy of four during the Blitz in World War Two and has been a royalist ever since.
Terry said: “I’ve always been dedicated to the royal family, they play a very important part in my life and everybody else’s life."
Terry has brought a knitted babygro and matching booties for the new arrivval and a royal-themed moneybox for Prince George.
Joining in the party outside the hospital was John Loughrey, 60, a former chef from Wandsworth, who started making a daily trip to St Mary’s hospital on April 1.
He has slept on a bench adorned with flags for two days – the earliest the hospital would allow fans to stay.
The Diana ‘superfan’ claims to be the only member of public to attend every hearing of the inquest into her death.
Now he is hoping the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will honour her memory and name their second child after her - if it’s a girl.
The dedicated royalist has cheers and dances prepared for when the young couple emerge from the Lindo Wing to show off their new arrival to world.
He said: “We’ll celebrate for two hours dancing. It will be a street party. No one does it better than the British people who are super and magnificent.”
The Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth in just a matter of days and well wishers from around the country are expected to travel to meet the young Prince or Princess.
Amy Thompson, 14, and her mum Maria Scott, have journeyed from Newcastle to relive the magic of Prince George’s birth.
Schoolgirl Amy said: “I cried last time because it was so emotional and the build-up was so good, it was just magical. I’ll probably cry again.”
Unlike most girls her age, who are more likely to idolise One Direction’s Harry Styles, Amy has pictures of Prince Harry in her room.
“My friends think I’m mad to come down here,” she said. “They think I’m stupid. But its what I like to do.”
So far there is no sign of Prince George’s sibling, but the anticipation in the narrow street outside the Lindo Wing is building.
Veteran royalist Terry thinks it won’t be long before the Duchess of Cambridge gives birth – and before he returns to St Mary’s Hospital.
He added: “I’m pretty sure Will and Kate will have another one after that.”
