A tangle of ladders and metal barriers lies across the street from the hospital where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's royal baby will be born later this month, as the international media circus sets up its camp.

On Friday (July 5) some 60 ladders were in place in press pens and a few TV cameras were already in position, even though the expected due date for the Duchess of Cambridge isn't until the middle of the month.

Once the baby is born, it is expected that Prince William and his wife Catherine will emerge holding their new baby and pose for the world's cameras at the main entrance of the private Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington.

It is the same hospital wing where Princess Diana gave birth to Prince William and Prince Harry.
