The Daily Mail reports:
Thousands of well-wishers have gathered outside Buckingham Palace and the London hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge is in labour as the world anxiously waits for her to give birth to the future king or queen.
Despite being the hottest day of the year so far, huge crowds have formed in the capital to celebrate the royal baby's arrival while the Queen is now waiting at her home for her great-grandchild to be born.
Kate who has Prince William by her side, was driven from Kensington Palace to the private Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, west London, at around 5.30am today.
A team of royal protection officers rushed the mother-to-be in via a rear exit, the same route taken by Princess Diana when she gave birth to William in 1982.
This afternoon there was a large police presence around the hospital as royal fans gathered as they waited for news about the soon-to-be mother and baby.
Meanwhile, many more gathered outside Buckingham Palace, where the official announcement of the baby's birth will be made on an easel to be placed at its gates.
