Twitter index: Duchess of Cambridge goes into labor

The Duchess of Cambridge's labor is causing "#RoyalBaby" to trend in third position on Twitter and is also partly the reason why "BBC," the name of the state British broadcasting service, trends in fifth position.

While the baby, no matter what the sex, will be in line to the throne, there is -- hypothetically -- a chance that one of the 15 Commonwealth countries would not update or change its succession rules. This means it would be possible for a daughter to become queen of England, while a younger brother, born subsequently, could become, for argument's sake, king of Canada, for example.

Elsewhere, One Direction's latest single, "Best Song Ever," is trending as the boys, after weeks of dropping teaser trailers and, on Friday 19, an audio video, will finally release the official video. The official version of "Best Song Ever" is set to drop via One Direction's channel at 5pm GMT -- keep an eye on youtube.com/user/onedirectionchannel.
