Royals Watchers Are Going Nuts Right Now

If you haven't heard — which is reasonable considering it's 7 a.m. or earlier in the U.S. right now, but not reasonable seeing as this has to do with a royal baby Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday, May 2 at 8:34 a.m. BST. Obviously, this is cause for celebration. And while you might celebrate the news by pouring a cup of coffee and scrolling through Twitter, some people have taken things to another level. That's right, I'm talking about the royal watchers, some of whom have been waiting outside of the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital for over a week now.

Middleton's alleged due date was April 23 — nine whole days ago! — which means some royal family fanatics have been camped out even longer than that because... well, I guess because they wanted to get a good seat. According to The Telegraph ,

Maria Scott, 44, and her daughter Amy Thompson, 14 have been waiting outside the Lindo Wing for 13 days now, but were having to return to their native Newcastle upon Tyne on Monday.

"A couple more days and we wouldn't be here," said Amy, a school student. "So it was a relief when we heard [Kate Middleton had] arrived this morning. It's great timing for us."

Now that's what I call commitment.

And now that the baby is here, these fans are really going wild. Scroll through for some photos that really show what an emotional experience this is for passionate royal watchers.
