With that, I'm off to bed. Wish I could stick around to chase this, but it's late.

The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to hospital in the early stages of labour, Kensington Palace has confirmed.
Kate, 33, was driven from her apartment at Kensington Palace to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, west London, at 6am this morning, accompanied by her husband, Prince William.

The couple have also vowed, just like last time, not to make public his or her arrival until they have had time to inform their respective families –starting with the Queen and also including uncle Prince Harry, who is currently in Australia on secondment with the army.
After the public announcement has been made by Kensington Palace, the traditional notice of birth will be placed on an easel in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace by the Queen’s staff, just as they did when Prince George was born in 2013.

Hillary Clinton is planning to officially launch her US presidential campaign on Sunday while en route to Iowa, a source familiar with the campaign has confirmed to the Guardian.
The former secretary of state is scheduled to declare her second run for president on Twitter at noon eastern time on Sunday, the source told the Guardian, followed by a video and email announcement, then a series of conference calls mapping out a blitzkrieg tour beginning in Iowa and looking ahead to more early primary states.
Clinton’s Sunday schedule is booked beginning with takeoff from New York to Iowa, where speculation has centered for weeks that Clinton was focusing attention for an April campaign launch. Her scheduled calls are with advisers in other key battleground states.
