The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.
The baby will be fifth in line to inherit the throne, following grandfather Prince Charles, dad Prince William, and older brother and sister, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Speculation is rife as to whether the latest HRH will be a boy or girl. According to BBC.com, bookies' favourites for the newest royal's name include Mary, Alice and Victoria for a girl, and Arthur, Albert and Philip for a boy.
