I think we're only talking about a matter of minutes. It has been said that after the baby arrives, that Prince William would immediately phone the Queen and inform her of the birth. At that point, the grandparents would be called and notified. All this is going on while W&C's staff are preparing the notice that is to be hand-delivered to BP.

I've been in York today and I managed to see and say Hello to The Prince of Wales, this was early this morning after Catherine was admitted but you could clearly tell he was excited from his manner.

I just want you all to know that it was my local thunderstorm, power loss, which always freaks out my router, making me incommunicado with the internet that caused the start of labor for the Duchess of Cambridge. You are welcome.

That said...... Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeooooooooo I am squealing with delight.

Did anyone else notice that the internet announcement came from CH and was linked to and re-tweeted by the British Monarchy official sites.

Also, our CNN is avoiding the "K" word and exclusively using the Duchess of Cambridge. All of you should be very proud - they listened to you!

I completely agree SM. I want to be alone when I have the flu!So quite frankly a crowd of people-even people that I love-being around me during something like childbirth would not make me happy.

I know a couple of women who even banned their husbands from the delivery room!

Well, I'm really beginning to feel quite tired and a bit impatient (and wishing I'd slept in those couple of hours I had left this morning), but I can only imagine how Kate is feeling. Here's hoping that it happens soon!

Oh, how lovely that you got to meet him on such a special day!

She's been at the hospital almost 12 hours now. And you usually have to wait until you're about 4cm [or something near there] gone I think before they'll admit you, I'm not sure though if that's the same thing for Kate or not. So here's for hoping that we haven't got much longer to wait.

Does anyone have any idea how much time will pass between the baby being born and the formal announcement being brought to Buckingham Palace?

Lumutqueen, how exciting.

I hope she has an easy delivery. The first is the hardest, then it gets really hard (until s/he sleeps through the night), hard, but fun (1-3 years), then easier (4-11), then hardest (12-18). I wish them both the best.

As long as he or she is born before 10:30 PM (UK time). Otherwise, we have to wait until tomorrow morning for the official announcement.

I thinke it´s not the same with Kate. Probably she went to hospital when she felt the first contractions....She will be looked after mucher more than usual women. Also the statement " early labour" could mean that....

If he/she is born after 10:30pm, we'll have to wait until tomorrow morning to find out, probably around about 8:00am

Miguel and Rebecca the Cambridges private secretaries are inside the hospital. They are going to keep both sides informed during the labor.

"Every man or woman who marries into this house, every child born into it, has to put their gifts at the family's disposal."

From Downton Abbey but it is very accurate to the Windsors. Once he or she comes down the shoot, his or her life is not really their own in very many ways.

This photo is precious - it sums up the public excitement a bit! http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2013/...96_964x643.jpg

Is someone supposed to inform the press outside the hospital that the notice has been put up outside the palace when the baby is born? Will they show footage of the easel and announcement being put up? What is the protocol for this?

Why? Why wouldn't they just post the announcement whenever they knew? I'd think they'd post it right away - otherwise they might be afraid of some nurse or janitor or whoever leaking the info to the press.

CNN's royal expert is a hack! Where do they find these people? Certainly not at the Royal Forums!

If Kate is having the "natural" birth she said she wanted, she may not be flat on her back with her feet up in stirrups. Sitting up, even walking around, is more normal for natural births unless they are very quick. It is not a normal position to give birth on your back. Squatting is normal in many primitive cultures. Induction puts an end to the mother's ability to have natural birth, so I hope that isn't happening.
