UK: Royal baby on the way as Kate Middleton goes into labour

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, went into labour on Monday morning with Prince William joining her in London's St. Mary's hospital, as well as journalists from hundreds of media outlets from around the world.

Kate and William first met in 2001 at the University of St. Andrews and got engaged in October 2010. They married in 2011 while Kate's pregnancy was confirmed in 2012.

While Queen Elizabeth II was deemed eligible to rule because she had no brothers, when Kate and William's baby is born it will be the third in line to the throne regardless of whether it is a boy or a girl. This is due to a new law which was recently passed that does not discriminate against gender in regards to royal succession.

The second in line to the throne is the child's grandfather, Prince Charles, and the third in line is Prince William respectively.
