A procession of horses march past Buckingham Palace in central London on July 22, 2013. Prince William's wife Kate, (Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) was admitted to hospital today in the early stages of labour as the world awaited the birth of a baby directly in line to inherit the British throne. It will then be made public in the traditional way, with a proclamation signed by royal doctors displayed on an easel in the Buckingham Palace forecourt -- the same easel used to announce William's birth in 1982.
