There’s officially a new royal baby in the world! Kate Middleton has given birth to a little boy.
Kensington Palace announced the royal birth on social media on Monday morning, saying, “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs. The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.
They added, “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.”
The Duchess of Cambridge delivered the baby at St. Mary’s Hospital, which is the same facility where she delivered her first two children.
Now that the royal little one is here, we are all waiting for the family’s traditional debut photo out front of St. Mary’s.
Here is Prince William and Kate showing off their first born and heir to the throne, Prince George in 2013.
And, again in 2015 with Princess Charlotte.
The royal baby is the fifth in line of succession after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
