Is that Prince William and Kate Middleton? This duo was spotted walking briskly to St. Mary's Hospital's Lindo wing after it was reported that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on their way back to London today. Royal baby fake out!

A couple of Kate Middleton and Prince William lookalikes caused quite a stir outside of St. Mary's Hospital in London Friday, after the crowd standing by thought they were the real royals finally checking in, according to ABC News.

The crowd, which has been camped outside of the hospital for weeks, went wild when they saw the lookalikes walking briskly towards the Lindo Wing of the hospital where Kate is set to give birth.

It had been reported earlier that the duo had left Kate's family's home in Bucklebury and were heading back to London.

But, as it turned out, they were just a couple of pranksters sent over by the UK Sun.

"For anyone who missed it, here is a link to the full low-down on our #royalbabyprank that fooled the world's media..," The Sun tweeted Friday.

Both the fake William and fake Kate (who sported a faux pregnant belly under her shirt) wore t-shirts that read "The Sun No. 1 For Royal Baby News."

In spite of the fake out though, some of the crowd made the best of the duo's joke, posing with the pair after they revealed they weren't the real deal.

Meanwhile, the Great Kate Wait continues.
