The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to hospital and is in the early stages of labour, Kensington Palace has confirmed. Kate, 33, was taken to the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, Paddington where she will give birth to George's little brother or sister.

The baby will be fourth in line to the throne, knocking uncle Prince Harry down to fifth place. He or she will be delivered by the same elite medical team who brought Prince George into the world in July 2013 led by royal obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston and including Surgeon gynaecologist Alan Farthing.

Bookies have strongly favoured the baby being a girl, with favourite names including Alice, Elizabeth, Charlotte and Victoria. If it's a boy top choices include James, Arthur, Louis and Philip
