Royal baby: Kate, Duchess of Cambridge in labour
The Duchess of Cambridge is in labour, as the world's media gather outside the hospital for news of the royal baby.
Royal vehicles were seen at a back entrance to the hospital at about 06:00 BST, with the announcement coming from Kensington Palace 90 minutes later. There has been no official update since then.
The couple do not know the sex of their first child, who will be third in line to the throne.
