Royal baby news: Kate Middleton in labour

Kate Middleton

Kensington Palace has announced that the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has been admitted St. Mary’s Hospital in the early stages of labour this morning (April 23).

The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.

Even though Kate is in the early stages of labour, things will likely move very quickly. Kate arrived at the hospital at 6:00 a.m. when she was in labour with Princess Charlotte and gave birth to her just two hours and 34 minutes later. So it’s quite likely, if Kate’s labour progresses smoothly, we will have a royal birth announcement quite soon.

Since this is a royal baby, Duchess Catherine has a massive medical team waiting on her. She has two obstetricians, three midwives, three anaesthetists, four theatre staff, two special care baby unit staff, four paediatricians, one lab technician and three to four hospital managers. Thankfully, Kate tends to have easy, natural labours (well, as easy as pushing a baby out can be), so she actually only use the midwives and her OBs when she gave birth to George and Charlotte. The rest of the 23-strong team is there just in case of an emergency.
