Devoted royal watchers have been waiting outside the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London for eight days in hopes of seeing Duchess Kate make her big entrance before giving birth to the next royal prince or princess.
That's a heck of a wait on the cold and often wet sidewalks, and the royals sympathize with their uncomfortable superfans. So to lift spirits of the crowd — many of whom were on hand for the birth of Prince George, too —the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sent them sweet treats and warm drinks Tuesday morning.
Kensington Palace confirmed to NBC News that the gift came from the royal couple.
But did Will and Kate simply send pastries and drinks, or did they deliver a baby-to-be clue, too?
The bakery boxes were tied with pink ribbons, but as Natalie Morales told TODAY viewers Tuesday, "Nobody is reading anything into that. Right? Yeah."
Only time will tell.
