Celebrities take to social media to share royal baby excitement

Stars' twitter accounts have been abuzz with news of the impending arrival of the royal baby (Buckingham Palace confirmed that The Duchess is in her early stages of labour around 6 am this morning). "#RoyalBaby" began trending on twitter almost immediately following the Palace's announcement. Multiple national public figures have gone to Twitter to share the good news.

Broadcaster Piers Morgan tweeted "Keep Calm...and Carry On. #Kate #Labour", then a few minutes later added "Death of Australian cricket, birth of royal baby. #HistoricTimes". Former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott joked, "Great to hear the Duchess of Cambridge has gone into labour. Is she an affiliated member?". Football Focus host Dan Walker joked around as well, tweeting "Some names just don't sound right for a #RoyalBaby do they? 'I give you...Queen Tracey' or 'King Dave'." Much more Twitter and social media activity to follow as we all await the birth of the royal baby.
