Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge, is set to give birth soon to her first child with her husband Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge, who is currently on leave from the Royal Air Force to be with his wife.

“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London in the early stages of labour,” read an official statement sent by the staff of the Prince of Wales. “The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.”

BBC News reports that Queen Elizabeth II’s former gynecologist, Dr. Marcus Setchell, will be heading the medical team in charge of the delivery. He will be assisted by Dr. Alan Farthing, the Queen’s current gynecologist.

According to E!Online, Kate’s mother, Carole, and her sister, Pippa, are both expected to be in the delivery room with William during the birth. The rest of the couple’s immediate family, as well as British Prime Minister David Cameron, will be among the first to be informed of the news.

The rest of the public will be informed of the royal birth through a signed document that will be displayed in front of the palace gates.

The baby, whose sex is still unknown, will remain third in line to the British throne regardless of its gender.
