Kensington Palace Just Announced That Kate Middleton Has Gone Into Labour

Baby number three is officially on its way.

Kate Middleton has been noticeably absent from royal festivities over the past few days.

While other members of the royal family were attending the Queen's 92nd birthday party (and re-wearing outfits that Kim Kardashian repped in 2007) Kate Middleton had been at home—nesting, presumably—and patiently awaiting the arrival of baby number three.

Well, the wait is officially over!

Kensington Palace just took to Twitter to announce that the Duchess has gone into labour.

In a very formal, characteristically royal tweet, the palace wrote:

Of course, royal fans were overjoyed by the news and reacted accordingly:

Our sentiments exactly.
