Kate Middleton is in labor with her first child with husband Prince William in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London early Monday, and we’ve got the details for you right here on RadarOnline.com.
The palace issued a statement Monday reading, “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted this morning to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London in the early stages of labour.
“The Duchess traveled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.”
A spokesman for the couple said “things are progressing as normal.”
The baby will be third in line for England’s throne, and subsequently, be a head of state in 15 other countries, Australia and Canada among those.
As we previously reported, when the baby is born, the palace will make the announcement but on an official placard placed on an easel in Buckingham Palace’s forecourt. At the same time, the palace will release the child’s gender, weight and time of birth via tweet and news release. The child’s name will be released at a second time.
