The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third children, expected to arrive anytime today.
The Duchess of Cambridge has gone into labour has been admitted to the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, central London – the same hospital where she gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
It was announced last September that the Duke and Duchess were expecting their third baby.
Like her two previous pregnancies, they had to announce the news before she had reached the 12-week stage because she was suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, an extreme form of morning sickness.
In October, the Palace said the baby was due in April. Her actual due date has never been confirmed and it is understood that the Duke and Duchess do not know the sex of the baby.
Barriers to create media pens and parking suspension signs have been in place outside the hospital since 9 April.
