Kate Middleton In Labor At St. Mary’s Hospital, Labor Is “Progressing Normally”

The wait for the royal baby is almost over! Kensington Palace confirmed Kate Middleton checked into St. Mary’s Hospital in London shortly before 6 o’clock this morning after her labor began naturally. Middleton and Prince William were reportedly accompanied to the hospital by a security team. They made their way to the Lindo Wing through the Cambridge entrance, which is the same entrance Prince Diana used when she arrived at St. Mary’s to give birth to Prince William in the Lindo Wing in 1982.

"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," Kensington Palace said in a statement. "The Duchess traveled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge."

The Lindo Wing staff said they are “exceptionally proud that this historic moment is happening here.”

Middleton’s labor is said to be “progressing normally.” Once she delivers the baby, a written declaration revealing the baby's gender, weight and time of birth will be posted on an easel outside Buckingham Palace. That information will also be released electronically.
