Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their baby boy into the world, Kensington Palace announced today.
Third in line to the throne, the Prince of Cambridge was delivered at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s hospital, Paddington, at 4.24 pm weighing 8lbs 6oz. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are delighted at the news.”Delighted … the royal couple are over-the-moon.
First-time parents Kate and William, both 31, will be busy deciding on a name for their bundle of joy – with bookies touting George and James as the favourites. A change in the laws of succession announced in October 2011 meant that boy or girl.
