Duchess of Cambridge’s labour progressing

Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in hospital in London, UK, awaiting the arrival of their second baby.

Prince William and his wife Catherine are awaiting the arrival of their second child, with the duchess several days overdue. The palace has now confirmed the new member of the royal family will arrive soon.

“The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to St Mary's Hospital in the early stages of labour,” a spokesperson confirmed.

“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted at 06.00hrs to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London and is 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.”

Fans have be assured the labour is progressing normally.

The couple are already parents to Prince George, who will be two in July. He is being looked after by his nanny, Maria Borrallo.

No further comment will be made until the baby has arrived, with George’s birth confirmed four hours after he entered the world.

At the moment it’s not known whether the royal couple are having a boy or a girl, with much speculation about the name they have chosen too. It’s thought that Diana, in honour of William’s late mother, is in the running, along with Charlotte, James and Frederick.

The baby will be fourth in line to the throne.

News of Catherine’s labour was greeted warmly, with fans having flocked to St Mary’s Hospital in London, UK, all week as they awaited news on her condition.
