The Duchess of Cambridge was expected to give birth over the weekend, but is now believed to be at least four days overdue.

"She's well, in good spirits," a royal insider told Us Weekly. "Although it would be fair to say also eager for the time to come."

Much like their first prince, Prince George, the new arrival will be born at St Mary's Hospital's Lindo Wing.

The expectant mum has reportedly been waiting out the end of her pregnancy with her mother Carole at her Kensington Palace apartment, enjoying walks around the gardens with her mother, little George and their dog Lupo.

Prince Harry also made a visit to see Kate and his brother, Prince William, ahead of the birth.

Meanwhile, according to the Telegraph, she is expected to be induced due to the fact she is past her due date.

"The doctors don’t normally wait for more than a week," the paper reports.

"They will probably already have been in touch with Kate, and talked about which day which suit her best to go in and be induced if the baby doesn’t arrive in the next couple of days."
