The “Hold Still” photo exhibition spearheaded by the Duchess has opened online.
This is one of those quick little posts that you can quickly scan and file away until you need it. It’s a briefer on what to expect, what to look for and who to follow online (now and later) for your best coverage of the upcoming royal birth.
UPDATED MAY 2, 2am: Follow all of the events on our live blog here.
Once we have the news we will do a brief post (much like this one) alerting everyone that Kate has been admitted to the hospital. And then, when conditions warrant, we will switch to live blogging of the event, just as we did in 2013. Here’s what that actually looked like on the site.
As family members and others arrive we will share those images, like this one of Kate’s parents, Carole and Mike Middleton, arriving at the hospital in July 2013.
Of course we were live when Kate and William presented Prince George to the world, and we continually posted links on Facebook for watching live coverage online and on TV. We also continually tweeted those links.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE BIRTH::
That is the game plan for coverage here at WKW. But we recognize many readers want to stay on top of things via additional/other sources, so we’ve compiled these lists for you to refer to as desired.
We begin with official media sites for the Palace. While we won’t see minute-by-minute tweets and posts on these accounts, it is where official announcements will be made and photos released.
The best place for the very latest information and ongoing live coverage will be Twitter. Below, a list with some of the royal reporting corps you may want to follow (in no particular order).

LIVE BLOGS: Media live-blogging updates from the Lindo Wing
LIVE FEEDS: As with George’s birth, there will be live video feeds; following are some options. (NOTE: I will be updating this constantly, adding URLs we don’t yet have for The Sun, as well as more sites sure to be added.)
Special pages that have been created for the event:
Again, we will continue to update things as appropriate, but wanted to get this initial post to you so have resources available should you want to follow things online.
