It is finally time. After much anticipation, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, was admitted to the hospital to deliver the royal child number three with her husband, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge.
“Her Royal Highness Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London this morning in the early stages of her work.” The Kensington Palace announced on Twitter that Kate Middleton is in the early stages of working with her third royal child Monday.

Middleton first announced her pregnancy back in September 2017 with an expected maturity date sometime in April. This newest addition to Prince William and Middleton’s royal family follows Princess Charlotte, born on May 2, 2015, and Prince George, the future heir to the throne, born on July 22, 2013.
Middleton and Prince William
Early in pregnancy, Middleton suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which she also experienced in her first two pregnancies. But in the last few months, Middleton was very pleased, sometimes appearing at several public events a day from voluntary awards showing red carpets. Middleton and Prince William remained closely concerned with the expected sex of the new child, and there were also plenty of speculation and bets to choose the royal child; we will have to wait for the official announcement of the Kensington Palace on both sides.
For Princess George and Princess Charlotte, Middleton was born in Lindo Wing’s private London hospital and appeared with her newborns on the hospital’s first steps soon after birth.
This was a plan when the hospital wing was closed several weeks before in preparation for the arrival of a royal child.
