Kate in Labour

Kensington Palace has released a statement to confirm that Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, was admitted to hospital early this morning and is in the early stages of labour. She was accompanied to St Mary's in Paddington, west London, by her husband, the Duke of Cambridge (CLICK). Royal watchers and the press will be skipping about in excitement. The world's press has been camped outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital for weeks. The royal nipper was rumoured to be due in the middle of July, so it is supposedly one week overdue, but this is medical nonsense. Doctors calculate the due date from the last period of menstruation. This produces an estimate, give or take a week. The video still shows Kate and William leaving St Mary's Hospital following her treatment for dehydration during the early stage of her pregnancy. Let's hope she still looks as chipper as she did then. The next news from Kensington Palace will probably be the birth. How long will that take? Research suggests that the more anxious the prospective mother is the longer and more difficult the birth will be. A relaxed Duchess could pop the baby out later today.
