The royal baby frenzy kicked into action outside a central London hospital on Monday (July 22) morning, upon news the Duchess of Cambridge had been admitted and was in labour.

What had been relatively quiet press pens were almost immediately swamped with reporters from around the world, as cameras clamoured for the best positions.

The BBC reported that royal vehicles were seen at the back of the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital around 6am and 7.30am local time. The palace confirmed Kate has been admitted.

Some dedicated fans of the royal family have been camped out on benches in front of the hospital for many days and nights. They were delighted to finally have some news after the long wait for Kate to go into labour.

There was a strong police presence outside the Lindo Wing and hundreds of TV cameras, reporters and photographers from all corners of the world pressed into media pens.

The next official news the world will hear is when the baby is born.
