The Duchess of Cambridge gives birth to a baby boy
After weeks of anticipation the Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to her third child, a baby boy weighing in at 8lbs 7oz (3.8 kilograms). Kensington Palace announced that the birth took place at just after 11am at St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London, adding: “The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third child is fifth in line to the throne, after his grandfather Prince Charles, father William and his two siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Like his siblings the latest addition to the Royal Family was born at St Mary’s Lindo Wing, as was their father.
The baby’s name is now hotly awaited with Arthur, Philip, Albert and Frederick thought to be amongst the most likely choices.
