Duchess of Cambridge Goes Into Labor at St. Mary’s in Paddington
She will give birth to the future king or queen of England.
The Daily Mail reported:
The Duchess of Cambridge is in the early stages of labour and was admitted to hospital at around 5.30am today as she prepares to give birth to the future king or queen.
Prince William is with his wife at the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, west London, where he himself was born in 1982.
‘The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted this morning to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London in the early stages of labour,’ a royal spokesman said.
‘The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing with The Duke of Cambridge’.
Kate and William, who spent the weekend at Kensington Palace, travelled without a police escort.
Sources told MailOnline that Kate went into labour naturally and things are ‘progressing well’.
The Queen is at Windsor Castle today and is being kept informed about Kate’s condition.
She is due back at Buckingham Palace later this afternoon.
Prime Minister David Cameron said today it was a ‘very exciting occasion’ and whole country is ‘hoping for the best’.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev Justin Welby, tweeted: ‘My thoughts and prayers are with Kate and the whole family on this enormously special day.’
This morning there is a strong police presence around the hospital and two police officers guarded the entrance to the private wing.
Experts believe that the Duchess of Cambridge should expect to be in labour for around half a day.
