The countdown to the arrival of Britain’s Prince William and Kate Middleton’s newborn is on!
Just moments ago, reports confirmed that the 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. It’s also the same place where she had Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2. The world is now eagerly waiting for royal baby number 3!
Kensington Palace released a statement which reads:
“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 traveled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.”
Similar to her 2 previous pregnancies, Kate has been suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, an extreme form of morning sickness which can cause severe nausea and vomiting. This condition requires supplementary hydration and nutrients.
Although the parents don’t know if their baby is a boy or a girl, that hasn’t stop U.K. bookmakers from coming up with name predictions. Mary, Alice, and Victoria are the top 3 favourite girl names while Albert, Arthur, and Fred are the favourites for a boy.
