Duchess Kate's 3rd baby is reportedly the biggest Royal baby born in 100 years
Like his sister, he was born without prolonged labor.
Daily Mail reported that Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William’s third child has already set a record of his own.
Born at 11.01 am yesterday morning, the little Prince of Cambridge weighed 8lb 7 oz.
This makes him the couple’s heaviest baby at birth.
The baby was delivered in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London. The Duchess was admitted to the hospital owing to early labor pains at 6 am.
The news was officially shared by the Kensington Palace two hours later. Prince William was by the Duchess’ side throughout the day.
After about 5 hours, Middleton gave birth to her third child – a hale and hearty baby boy. The happy update on the new royal’s arrival was shared by the palace at 1:02 pm.
The official announcement also revealed the weight of the new prince, which was higher than that of Prince George or Princess Charlotte.
It is also worth noting that although the new baby was born relatively quickly after Middleton went into labor, the quickest delivery was that of Princess Charlotte.
In 2015, the royal couple’s only daughter was born under 2 hours from the time her mother experienced pains. At birth, she weighed 8 lb 3oz.
Comparatively, the birth of Prince George was the more tedious one, since he was delivered after 10 hours of labor.
When Prince George was born, he was considered to be the heaviest royal baby, weighing 8 lb 6oz, a record now broken by his youngest sibling.
While the world gets to see the first glimpse of the youngest royal, the next discussion in line is the name of the boy.
While there is no definite choice announced, reports are that the Duke and Duchess are considering the names Philip, Arthur, and Albert.
However, it might be a while before the name if finalized and announced, since the baby boy has to first be shown to the Queen and other members of the royal family.
Following the royal family tradition, the news of the baby’s arrival was put up on an easel.
