Duchess Kate has checked into St. Mary’s Hospital and is in labor.
LONDON — At last, after weeks of waiting and on-the-edge anticipation (in a heat wave), the royal baby is ready to arrive. Duchess Kate of Cambridge is in the hospital and in the early stages of labor, Buckingham Palace confirmed early Monday.
“The Duchess traveled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with the Duke of Cambridge,” tweeted Clarence House, the press office for Prince William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The couple’s spokesman said, “Things are progressing normally” so far.
