Royal Baby

It looks like a future king or queen of Great Britain will be born on July 22, 2013.

From FOX News:

After many weeks of waiting, the royal baby is on the way. Kensington Palace officials confirmed Monday morning that Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, had been admitted to St. Mary's Hospital in London in the early stages of labor.

According to the palace, the Duchess traveled by car to the hospital, accompanied by her husband, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, the grandson of the current British Queen, Elizabeth II. Sky News reported that Kate was taken in through a side entrance at around 6 a.m. London time.

The couple's spokesman said, "Things are progressing as normal," while Sky News' royal correspondent Paul Harrison said the Duchess' condition had been described as "very well".

"It seems it was a very orderly arrival," Harrison reported. "There were two vehicles. A Ranger Rover-type vehicle, and behind it there was an Audi vehicle.

...The child, whose gender is unknown, would be third in line to the throne of Great Britain, behind Charles, Prince of Wales, and William.

...Following a time-honored royal tradition, the world will first read about the birth from a small bulletin posted in front of Buckingham Palace.
Big breaking news!

Members of the press from around the world are gathered in London, waiting to announce the birth.

Kind of not necessary.
