Kate admitted to hospital in early stages of labour
THE Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to St Mary’s Hospital in London in the early stages of labour, Kensington Palace said today.
She travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing of the hospital with the Duke of Cambridge.
Kate is being tended to by a top medical team led by the Queen’s former gynaecologist Marcus Setchell, who delivered the Countess of Wessex’s two children.
The news was announced in a brief statement from Kensington Palace at 7.30am after rumours she had been spotted began circulating.
The statement read: “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted this morning to St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London, in the early stages of labour.
“The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.”
When the baby is born, a palace aide will leave the hospital with a foolscap piece of paper with the Buckingham Palace letterhead and signed by the medical team.
