Kate Middleton has been admitted to St Mary’s Hospital shortly before 6 a.m. today with Prince William by her side, traveled by car from Kensington Palace to the St Mary’s hospital.
Baby will be 3rd in line to the throne.
After the arrival of Royal baby, the Queen will, perhaps fittingly, be the first person to be informed of progress, and will receive a phone call from William as soon as anything happens, according to former press secretary to the Queen Dickie Arbiter.
Shortly afterwards, gynaecologist Marcus Setchell will write a formal, most likely typed proclamation, confirming the sex of the baby and possibly its weight. This will be placed in a dark wooden frame, taken away with a police escort and placed in an ornate easel behind the railings at Buckingham Palace.
The birth is expected to then be met with the traditional celebration of a 41-gun Royal Salute.
And, then the news will be announced across the royal household’s “online profile” – its website, Facebook page, and Twitter account @BritishMonarchy.
