However the BEA's list includes a ban on pre-coverage of the event, unauthorised entry into hospitals and a ban on cameras and OB vans there. The rules also ban astrology shows including those that debate the significance of being born on 11.11.11.
Newspapers are not covered by the guidelines and have already gone to press speculating on the ETA of this most celebrated newborn.
