Kate in labor as world waits: palace

Prince William's wife Kate has gone into labor and been admitted to St. Mary's Hospital in west London, for the birth of the couple's first child, who will be third in line to the British throne, his office said on Monday.

After weeks of feverish media speculation over the arrival of the royal baby, Kate, 31, was taken on Monday afternoon to the private wing of the Paddington hospital where William himself was born in 1982.

"The duchess traveled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital with the Duke of Cambridge," Kensington Palace said in a statement. "Things are progressing as normal. It wasn't an emergency."
