The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to hospital in the “early stages” of labour with royal baby number three.

A statement from Kensington Palace on Monday, April 23, 2018 confirmed the impending birth, stating Kate Middleton travelled to St Mary’s Hospital with her husband, Prince William on Monday morning UK time.

Royal watchers have gathered outside the hospital in anticipation for the new arrival, who will be fifth in line to the throne, bumping Prince Harry out of the top five and into sixth place.

The baby will follow in line behind Prince Charles, who is next in line, followed by William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The Duchess of Cambridge is being cared for in the private Lindo Wing, where she gave birth to her first children Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2.

Barricades have been in place since April 9 outside the private wing. Prince George and Princess Charlotte could also make an appearance to visit the new addition as has been done in the past.

George visited newborn Charlotte a few hours after she was born in 2015, arriving with his father, the Duke of Cambridge.

The 21-month-old slightly nervous looking youngster was carried up the steps to the private hospital by William, and gave the crowds a small wave.

More than 30 years earlier, two-year-old William held hands with his father, the Prince of Wales, as he entered the hospital in Paddington, London, to see his mother, the Princess of Wales and one-day-old Prince Harry early on September 16 1984.

The newspapers at the time reported how William, who was dressed in red shorts, a white shirt with red embroidery, white ankle socks and traditional leather bar shoes, ran down the corridor into Diana’s arms as she called his name. He was said to be “very, very excited about seeing his new brother”. The introduction was judged a success, with William holding baby Harry’s hand as he lay in his cot.
