Another British royal baby is on the way! Kensington Palace has just confirmed that Kate Middleton arrived at hospital this morning ready to welcome her third child with Prince William into the world.

The palace tweeted a statement from its official Twitter account saying: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, London earlier this morning 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."

The countdown has been on ever since the palace announced that Kate and William’s baby was due in April, and excitement started to build when the press noticed that barriers had been put up at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital earlier this month.

The pregnancy news first broke in September, when a statement was issued saying: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

Kate gave birth to both Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the same wing at St Mary’s.
