London - Prince William's wife Kate has been admitted to a London hospital for the birth of the couple's second child, Kensington Palace said on Saturday.

In a brief statement, palace officials said the Duchess of Cambridge was admitted at 06:00 local time (07:00 SA time) on Saturday at St. Mary's Hospital. She traveled by car to the Lindo wing with William.

The baby will be a younger brother or sister to William and Kate's first child, Prince George, who was born in July 2013 at the same hospital.

The couple has said that they don't know whether the baby will be a boy or a girl.

Royal officials are not expected to provide any more information until the birth, which will be announced on Twitter and Instagram.

That announcement will say what gender the baby is, as well as its weight and the time of birth.
