The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are just a week, possibly days, away from welcoming their first child and world is excitedly awaiting the arrival of baby Cambridge.
Last month, Prince William and pregnant Kate revealed they did not know the sex of their child and had decided to wait until the baby is born.
It has now been confirmed when the baby is born and the sex is confirmed, Canada’s CN Tower will be lit up pink or blue to honour the arrival of the Queen’s third great-grandchild and new heir to the throne.
The CN Tower, which was declared as one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World in 1995, often lights up to recognise national events, most recently lighting up dark and light blue on Father’s Day.
Niagara Falls is also expected to be lit up pink or blue when the baby is born after a request from the Monarchist Leaque of Canada. “We’re also asking for significant monuments to be lit up in blue or pink, such as Niagara Falls,” Robert Finch, president of the group explained. “There has been a noticeable surge in Canadian interest in the Royal family in the last few years.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are awaiting the arrival of their first child and as the due date approaches, the world’s media has gathered outside the London hospital where Kate is expected to give birth.
