Breaking Royal Baby Watch: Kate Middleton Heads To Hospital!

Royal Baby Watch: Kate Middleton Heads To Hospital!

We're (hopefully!) just a few hours away now from the birth of the royal baby.

Make it reign!

After missing her rumored July 13 due date by nine days, Kate Middleton and Prince William officially arrived at St. Mary's Hospital in London around 6 a.m. local time, and she will soon give birth to the royal baby in the Lindo Wing.

Here's what's known at this time:

  • Kensington Palace released that the Duchess of Cambridge is experiencing a normal labor.
  • Kate is rumored to be delivering naturally.
  • It could be 10 days before we know the royal baby's name—although Alexandra and George are rumored favorites. 
  • Carole Middleton, Kate's mother, is expected to be at the hospital.

Regardless of the baby's gender, he or she will be third in line to the throne behind Charles and William. We're guessing it's a girl—how about you?
