Royal baby: Do the royals live up to their star signs?

Do you believe in Horoscopes?

As the Duchess of Cambridge goes into labour there's been some discussion as to which star sign the royal baby will be.

If he/she is born before 4.54pm today, they will be a Cancer, but a Leo if born afterwards.

So which star sign are the other royals - and do they live up to their nature?

Here are some royal star signs, with descriptions from StarSigns.co.uk:

  • Prince William (and Princess Diana), Cancer: They have powerful emotions, making them loyal friends and romantic lovers. But they can be over sensitive and take offence easily. Watch out for their moody side.
  • Prince Harry, Virgo: Practical and industrious workers but very shy and modest. Sometimes said they are too conservative. (An ongoing problem with Harry...)
  • Kate Middleton, Capricorn: They have a pessimistic attitude to life, a slight lack of confidence, but lots of common sense, patience and a good sense of humour.
  • Prince Philip, Gemini: They are great communicators and enjoy talking and socialising. But they're also restless and easily bored.
  • Elizabeth II, Taurus: They enjoy creature comforts and the finer things in life and so are often accused of being materialistic. Reliable and ambitious, but can also be hot-headed and stubborn.
  • And if the royal baby is a Leo? They have strength and courage, are generous and protective, and an optimistic, enthusiastic, outlook on life. But they can also have big egos too, and can come across as bossy.
