For those of you looking for the official first word on the Royal Baby, let me give you a little hint - take the information straight from the official source and follow The British Monarchy on Facebook. Before many news media outlets could break the story of Kate Middleton going into labour, The British Monarchy Facebook Page had shared a very important update with the world. Early this morning they shared the following:
"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington, London in the early stages of Labour.
The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge."
It doesn't get much more official. With nearly 25,000 likes and nearly 8,000 shares at time of publishing, this is definitely one of their most popular pieces of information published on the page to date.
Now when it comes to the announcement of the birth, well that is officially announced at Buckingham Palace first. That's right, the Royal Family is sticking to tradition and announcing the birth via an official board that is placed outside the palace. We'll try our best to be there to instagram, but can't promise anything.
