UPDATE: News of royal baby’s birth to come through mix of tradition, social media

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

LONDON (AP) — "Things are progressing as normal." That's the word from a spokesman for Prince William and his wife Kate, after the Duchess of Cambridge went into labor this morning.
 
Royal officials say the couple traveled by car to St. Mary's Hospital in central London without a police escort, just before 6 a.m. They entered through a side door, avoiding the world's media gathered on the street outside the private Lindo Wing of the hospital, where Princess Diana also gave birth to William and his younger brother, Prince Harry.
 
Kate will be looked after by a top-notch medical team led by royal gynecologist Dr. Marcus Setchell. Palace officials are not expected to provide many details about how her labor is progressing.
 
The baby will be third in line to become Britain's monarch, after Prince Charles and William.
 
Representatives of the world's media have been camped outside the hospital for days, waiting for the birth of a child who will be third in line for the British throne.
 
But they will only get a hint of the news, when a royal aide emerges from the hospital with a signed bulletin carrying the Buckingham Palace letterhead. An official will take the bulletin to Buckingham Palace, where it will be posted on an easel in front of the building.
 
At the same time, there will be an official announcement on Twitter and the media will be formally notified. The document will give the baby's gender, weight and time of birth.
 
It could be some time before the baby's name is made public. When Prince William, the baby's father was born, a week passed before his name was announced.

LONDON (AP) – Palace officials say Prince William's wife, Kate, has been admitted to the hospital in the early stages of labor.
 
Royal officials say Kate arrived at St. Mary's Hospital in central London this morning with Prince William. Kate – also known as the Duchess of Cambridge – 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.
 
A spokesman for the royal couple says they traveled from Kensington Palace, where they spent the weekend, by car and without a police escort just before 6 a.m.
 
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.
