    Updated 3:05 a.m. ET
    LONDON The Duchess of Labor is in the early stages of labor in a London hospital, Kensington Palace says.Prince William was with his wife, the former Kate Middleton, when she was brought, by car, to Paddington Hospital, the palace says.
    Kate is expected to give birth in the private Lindo Wing of the hospital, where Princess Diana gave birth to William and his younger brother, Prince Harry.
    The baby will be third in line for the British throne, behind Prince Charles and William, and is anticipated eventually to become king or queen.
    The medical team will be led by royal gynecologist Dr. Marcus Setchell.
    The child will be the first for William and Kate, who married in 2011 after a long courtship.

    Royal babies - a history


    After the baby arrives, an aide will leave the hospital with a birth announcement and drive two-and-a-half miles to Buckingham Palace so it can be posted behind the gates in the forecourt on an easel, which was last used when Prince William was born 31 years ago. The announcement states the newborn's gender, weight and time of birth.

    Britain prepares for royal baby


    The child will be third-in-line to Britain's throne, regardless of whether it's a boy or girl, and is anticipated eventually to become king or queen. William is second in line, right behind his father, Prince Charles. The baby moves ahead of Prince Harry, who's now fourth in line. The succession change comes after a 2011 decision by the leaders of Britain and 15 Commonwealth nations endorsing new rules that give girls equal status with boys in the order of succession.

    Prince William and Kate


    The royal couple's child will officially be known as His or Her Royal Highness Prince or Princess of Cambridge. The title follows the dukedom bestowed on William by his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, on his wedding day in 2011. Earlier this year, Queen Elizabeth issued a royal decree allowing this royal baby -- and all of William and Kate's children -- to be titled prince or princess. The decree said "that all the children of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales should have and enjoy the style, title and attribute of royal highness with the titular dignity of Prince or Princess prefixed to their Christian names or with such other titles of honour."
    Plenty of excitement has surrounded the royal baby birth. In the days leading up to the big day, reporters and photographers were staked outside the St. Mary's Hospital in London awaiting the baby's arrival. The Royal Mint has minted 2,013 silver coins bearing a shield of the Royal Arms, to be given to newborns who share their birthday with the third in line to the British throne. Souvenirs and commemorative memorabilia are expected to flood Britain's stores.
    Buzz has been building ever since the royal couple revealed the baby news on Dec. 3, 2012, with the following statement: "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news."
    At that time, the Duchess of Cambridge was suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a potentially dangerous type of morning sickness in which vomiting can be so severe no food or liquid can be kept down. She was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London the same day the pregnancy was announced. Three days later, Kate was photographed leaving the hospital, alongside William, holding a bouquet of flowers.
    From January into the spring, Kate made several public appearances, as the world watched her baby bump grow. She attended a horse race, formally named a cruise ship and paid an official visit to Windsor Castle. In June, she withdrew from her public duties to get ready for the birth.
    The former Kate Middleton and William became engaged in October 2010 during a trip to Kenya and married in a lavish ceremony at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011.

    I hope she gets a move on and pops this baby out before I have to go to bed.

    Kari is Scottish - she'd join you in a wee dram if a mouse farted three fields away.
