The Duchess of Cambridge is taken through the side entrance of a private hospital in London with her husband at her side.
The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to hospital in the early stages of labour.
Kate, who is thought to be more than a week past her due date, is believed to have been taken through a side entrance of the Lindo wing at London’s St Mary’s Hospital early this morning.
The Duke of Cambridge travelled with her by car from Kensington Palace.
Her condition had been described as “very well”. “There’s been a lot of speculation this morning since about 5.30am.
“One or two people had seen a convoy of vehicles that looked as though they had come from Kensington Palace.
“It seems it was a very orderly arrival. There were two vehicles. A Ranger Rover-type vehicle, and behind it there was an Audi vehicle.
“Prince William had said from the beginning that he wanted to be alongside his wife when she went into labour.
“The big wait begins. We don’t know how long she will be in labour.”
Kate is being tended by a top medical team led by the Queen’s former gynaecologist Marcus Setchell, who delivered the Countess of Wessex’s two children.
