As we near the arrival of Kate Middleton and Prince William’s third child, anticipation mounts as the barricades have gone up around the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge will be giving birth. Of course, the question looming largest is whether Prince George and Princess Charlotte will soon have a baby brother or a baby sister.

William looked to be extremely pleased when his squad was victorious, and could be seen—yes—fist-pumping in the stands.
