Earlier, the 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge was yesterday admitted to the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London. It was the same hospital where both her previous pregnancies – George in 2013 and Charlotte in 2015 were also born. The new child will push uncle Prince Harry one place down the line of succession to sixth. He will be the sixth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II, who celebrated her 92nd birthday on Saturday.
