OK! USA seemed to make astonishing claims about Kate Middleton going into labour.

The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth. But only if you believe the cover of this week's OK! USA.

But print timings had conspired against the magazine, who released the front page story the same day as the Duchess of Cambridge visited the Brookhill Children's Centre in Woolwich on Wednesday with bump in tact.

The magazine cover adds juicy details of Carole Middleton's reaction (she "goes crazy in the waiting room", apparently) and of the "rush to hospital" with security team and family in tow.

However, inside the story is more to do with rumours about the Duchess' "birth plans" and family relations.

The Duchess has said she's due to give birth "mid-to-late April", so we can look forward to plenty more entertaining "baby drama" in the coming weeks.

It's got to be more amusing than the reality of "woman has baby", at least.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Clarence House declined to comment.
