A Kensington Palace spokeswoman told BuzzFeed News the royal couple was aware that people had been waiting outside the private Lindo Wing in Paddington and wanted to send them some breakfast.

The duchess is expected to give birth to her second child any day, with reports her due date was last Saturday.

Commenting on the breakfast today, royal superfan John Loughrey, told The Sun: “Two men in dark suits arrived at 9am and said they had cakes and coffee from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge."

“It’s made me quite tearful to know that they care.”

The 60-year-old added: “We’re really touched. We’re cold and tired and this really cheered us up.

“I will never forget this for as long as I live.”
