The couple announced the pregnancy while in Australia in October 2018, and the baby was expected to be born late-April to early-May.

As the due passed last week, betting agencies in the U.K. stopped taking bets on the birth.

The baby will be the Queen's eighth great-grandchild and seventh-in-line to the throne.

More to come.
