“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101 hrs.
The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz.
The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.
Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.’’
The baby boy was born at St Mary’s Hospital in London. He is the fifth in line to the throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, his father Prince William, and his siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
The Duchess was admitted to the hospital before 6 am (UK time) in the early stages of labour on Monday.
The Royal Timeline:
The Lindo Wing of the hospital saw a flock of reporters gather to hopefully catch the first glimpse of mother and baby.
And Finally, Hallelujah!
While we wait to find out what the baby boy is called, here’s a glimpse of the royal family pre-newborn.
