Kate Middleton, The Duchess Of Cambridge Goes Into Labour With 3rd Royal Child

Kate Middleton, The Duchess Of Cambridge Goes Into Labour With 3rd Royal Child

The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to hospital in the early stages of labour on St George’s Day.

Kate was taken by car before 6am this morning to the private Lindo wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, as she prepares to give birth to her third child.

Given that the births of her two previous children happened so quickly – within a matter of hours of her being admitted, in fact – it is anticipated that her third child will be born today, assuming there are no complications.

The baby prince or princess will be fifth in line to the throne, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s sixth great-grandchild and a younger brother or sister for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Royal watchers will be expecting a swift delivery at the Lindo Wing, with the child set to share a birthday with William Shakespeare and Lady Gabriella Windsor, the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.

Supporters of the royal family stand outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London this morning.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: ‘Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London, earlier this morning in the early stages of labour.

‘The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.’

The baby’s title will be HRH Prince or Princess of Cambridge. Excitement is building outside St Mary’s Hospital, where some fans have been camped out for 15 days hoping for a glimpse of the royal baby.

The timing of today’s announcement, falling on St George’s Day, added to the occasion for waiting royalists outside.

John Loughrey, 63, who is part of a group who have been camped outside the hospital, said: ‘We are so pleased. We have been here for 15 days.

‘I’m so pleased it’s St George’s Day. St George himself would be very pleased if the baby’s born today.’

An unsuspecting couple emerged from the Lindo Wing with their newborn baby to be greeted by the world’s media. They posed for photographs outside the famous door in front of dozens of journalists and photographers before leaving in a taxi.

‘It doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl as long as it’s a healthy baby and a healthy mother,’ he said. ‘It’s very good for our country and of course Her Majesty the Queen.’

Another member of his group, 82-year-old Terry Hutt, also welcomed the news.

‘It’s fantastic to have another newborn baby,’ said Mr Hutt, who turns 83 at the end of the month and was hoping to share his birthday with the new royal. ‘If they were born on my birthday, I would have got a birthday cake.’

Maria Scott, 46, from Newcastle, added: ‘I think it’s going to be a boy and I think it’s going to be quick.’

The group were talking in front of their make-shift camp, including royal memorabilia and a Union Flag tent.

The Duchess is being cared for by consultant obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston, who is the surgeon-gynaecologist to the household, and consultant gynaecologist Alan Farthing, the Queen’s surgeon-gynaecologist – part of the trusted team who delivered George and Charlotte.
Highly-trained midwives will also be on hand, while experts will be waiting in the wings in case of an emergency.
