Looks like I’m not the only one going wild over the Kate Middleton Royal labor news!
According to the gossip gurus at Hollywood Life, the Duchess of Cambridge went into labor with the royal baby during the early morning hours of July 22. And after Buckingham Palace confirmed the news that Kate had been admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital (The same place Princess Diana gave birth to Prince William and Prince Harry), Twitter went CRAZY! Excited celebrities, news organizations and fans took to Twitter to offer Kate and her husband Prince William lots of well wishes!
Piers Morgan: “Keep Calm…and Carry On. #Kate #Labour”
Kelly Osbourne: “Its all so exciting The Royal Baby is on the way!”
Chrissy Teigen: “This isn’t your baby Kate. Apparently it is our baby. All of us.”
BBC’s Peter Hunt: “The Duchess of Cambridge is in labour and has gone to give birth at the private Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. #RoyalBaby”

Kate Middleton In Labor — Official Palace Press Release
Clarence House tweeted the first official statement on July 22, stating:
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted this morning to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London 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.”
Interesting tidbit, but the Royal Household’s official Surgeon-gynecologist Dr. Alan Farthing and the Queen’s Surgeon-Gynecologist Dr. Marcus Setchell are the ones who are going to deliver the baby. Yes….there IS such a thing as the Royal Gynecologist.
Regardless of whether the baby is a boy or girl, the little prince/princess will be third in line for the royal throne, behind Prince Charles and Prince William. Congrats to Kate and Will!
