Kate Middleton's Best Pink And Blue Fashion Moments

Earlier this morning, the Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to St. Mary's Hospital in London with labor pains.  Accompanied by the Duke of Cambridge, Her Royal Highness traveled to the Lindo Wing by car from Kensington Palace, and entered through the Mary Stanford entrance, according to the Daily Mail.

On December 3rd, 2012, Clarence House announced that William and Catherine were expecting their first child together.  Unfortunately for the couple, the announcement came before Catherine was out of her first trimester.  The reason being that she was suffering from hyperemesis Gravidarum (acute morning sickness) and it was too much of a risk to hide her hospital visit from the press.

On January 14th, Clarence House announced that the royal couple would be expecting their child in July.  on June 15th, Catherine made her last appearance before taking time off ahead of the birth.

Members of the press have been camped outside St. Mary's Lindo wing since July 1st, coming up with clever ways to entertain themselves while waiting for any news.

Royalist Terry Hutt, a 78-year-old man from Cambridge, has also set up shop outside the wing, wearing head-to-toe Union Jack garb.  He was joined by Will and Kate lookalikes late last week, who were set up by The Sun to psych everyone out.

William's first call after the birth will be the Queen.  Then the Prime Minister will be informed, and a declaration will be posted at the gates of Buckingham Palace.  Following this will be a social media announcement on the baby's gender, height, weight etc.

In addition, a 41-gun salute will go off at Green Park, as well as one at the Tower of London (the same was done for William's birth in June 1982).

St. James's Palace has confirmed that the Duke and Duchess's household is now Kensington Palace.

Do you think Catherine will have a boy or girl?
