William and Kate’s family are delighted with the news.
Kensington Palace added: “the Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news.”
The excitement between the fans has reached a peak when Amanda Cook Tucker, Kate’s stylist, was noticed leaving the Lindo Wing. That sparked speculation that she was preparing Kate for the reveal of the new member to the family. Amanda took care of Kate’s look in her previous post-birth blow dries.
Kate Middleton had been admitted to hospital before 6am today.
The previous births of the Duchess have been fairly quick.
When Kate was pregnant with George, she gave birth 10-and-a-half hours after she was admitted to hospital. However, she gave birth to Charlotte only two hours and 34 minutes after being admitted at the Lindo Wing.
William and Kate’s third child will be fifth in line to the throne. The baby will bump Prince Harry into sixth place. The baby’s title will be HRH Prince or Princess of Cambridge.
