For those who weren’t able to follow the live blog we’ll do a quick recap of things, beginning with word from Kensington Palace that the Duchess had been admitted to the hospital at 6am London time, 1am EDT.

Media and the public started descending on the Lindow Wing.More from Gordon Rayner’s story in the Daily Telegraph:

In a virtual re-run of her hospital admission in July 2013, the Duchess, in a silver Mercedes estate car (Range Rovers and Jaguars are the usual royal vehicles), arrived at 6am, just 15 minutes later in the morning than she had done with Prince George, and slipped unseen into the aptly-named Cambridge Entrance.

Many media had been at the hospital all week, if not longer.
