Prince William’s pregnant wife Middleton is in labor – and will be giving birth to a baby girl any moment now. It was revealed months ago that Kate Middleton was pregnant with baby number two, and she has been proudly showing off her baby bump for the last few months. Although the Royal Family hasn’t officially confirmed that the Duchess of Cambridge would be giving birth to a Princess – the news was leaked months ago when Pippa Middleton threw her sister a pink-themed baby shower and Kate was shopping for baby-girl themed furniture for Prince George’s little sister’s nursery, and pink paint.
The Palace reportedly had three different hospitals on stand-by for when Kate Middleton went in to labor – but sources are reporting that Prince William’s has been admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital, Lindo Wing, in Paddington, the same hospital where the Duchess gave birth to Prince George. Kensington Palace released specific instructions for the press – and they are currently filing in and taking their assigned positions at the hospital. After Prince George’s birth, the Palace is trying desperately to keep some sort of order at the hospital and security has been tightened because of all of Kate Middleton’s reported stalkers (and there are rumored to be over 200 of them that are potentially dangerous).
Since it was confirmed that Kate Middleton and Prince William were indeed expecting another baby – the name of the Princess has been seriously debated by the Royal Family and the media. Rumor has it that Will and Kate may settle on the name Alice to avoid controversy among the family because Kate wanted to name the baby after members of the Middleton Family and Prince William wanted to name the baby after his late mother Diana – Queen Elizabeth has made it very clear that neither are acceptable.
But, now that Kate Middleton is officially in labor, we will know the Princess’s name in just a few short hours. Check back with CDL later today, and we will keep you updated on all of the details surrounding the Kate’s labor and the birth of The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William’s baby girl.
Update: The royal baby girl was born at 8:34 AM local time and weighed 8lbs and 3oz. Both Kate Middleton and her daughter are doing well!
