UPDATE: The Royal couple has just welcomed a new baby son, born at 11:01 this morning.

Kate and the baby are both said to be doing well, according to official reports from Kensington Palace.

The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is in “the early stages of labour”, according to reports.

She was admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital in London early this morning, the day of her due date, after having travelled from Kensington Palace with her husband, Prince William.

St. Mary’s Hospital is also the place of birth of Kate’s two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The official Twitter page of Kensington Palace confirmed the news an hour ago with a tweet:

The new royal baby will take place as fifth in the line of succession to the throne, after Prince Charles, William, George and Charlotte. Prince Harry, Prince William’s brother, will be moved back to sixth in line.

Kate Middleton was noticeably absent from the Queen’s 92nd birthday celebrations earlier this week, as her due date was so close.
