Looks like the Royal Baby Watch and the heat wave gripping much of the Northern Hemisphere are officially starting to make people insane.

Exhibit A: Spanish artist Kaya Mar dropped off a "tribute" to the mom-to-be at St. Mary's Hospital's Lindo Wing - RBW '13 Ground Zero - on Friday.

His painting features Kate Middleton making like the Mona Lisa, nursing the royal heir(ess) and extending one slender leg out from under her robe.

For whatever reason, one of Queen Elizabeth's corgis is also there.

This may be the weirdest thing of all time, but at least it makes Kate Middleton's official royal portrait look ... a lot less awkward and a lot more royal, for sure.

Gotta be the heat. It's driven Kate out of the palace and into her parents' house because they have A/C, and now it's driven Kaya Mar out of his mind.

Expectant Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton recently moved into Nottingham Cottage, a quaint two-bedroom house on the grounds of London's Kensington Palace.

The Middletons live in the village of Bucklebury, an hour or so outside of London ... and the cottage has no A/C. When you're nine months pregnant, not a small factor!

"It was just too warm in Nott Cott," an insider said, and with no signs of imminent labor, "She decided to spend the weekend with mum and dad."

"It's much more comfortable there."

On the one hand, all the pomp and circumstance surrounding one 31-year-old about to give birth seems silly. On the other hand, why not celebrate it?

It's a rare celebrity gossip story that is 100 percent positive, as well as world history in the making, as Queen Elizabeth II will have a third living heir(ess).

For the first time, the rules of ascension have changed so that Prince William and Kate Middleton's first-born will inherit the throne, regardless of gender.

As for when the royal baby will arrive ... it's still anyone's guess.

As the Royal Baby Watch continues today, Prince William has apparently left Wales for London, where his wife Kate Middleton is due to give birth.

Earlier this week, Prince William was putting in extra time as a search-and-rescue pilot at RAF Valley in Anglesey before he takes paternity leave.

The standby helicopter ready to rush the 31-year-old heir to her side has now departed, however, fueling speculation that the big day may be upon us.

Local sources do not believe the newly-missing helicopter necessarily indicates that the soon-to-be mom is ready to give birth imminently, however.

"The trip is planned for Australia and New Zealand," an insider said.

Kate Middleton, 31, is due to give birth to her first child with her husband July 11, but as she herself noted in April, "babies have their own agenda."

In any case, news of the birth will be revealed via a framed announcement placed on a wood and gold easel behind the gates of Buckingham Palace.

Kate Middleton is nervous to give birth. But she's feeling great at least!

The Duchess, whose official due date is July 11, is "full of energy and really rather used to the bump," according to sources close to the royal family.

That said, the mother of England's future King or Queen is anxious.

"Naturally she is a little nervous about the big day, what new mum wouldn't be?" points out the source ... although Kate is more closely watched than most.

Indeed, last week, media have already set up camp outside St. Mary's Hospital in London, where Kate Middleton plans to give birth inside the Lindo Wing.
