The Duchess of Cambridge delivered her third child on the morning of April 23 and both mother and son are reportedly doing well.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have just welcomed their third child and it’s a boy!
On the morning of April 23, the Duchess of Cambridge delivered a healthy baby boy at exactly 11:01, according to a statement released by Kensington Palace shortly after. The announcement was made just a few hours after the Duchess was admitted into St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London earlier that day.
According to the statement, the baby weighed 8 lbs 7 oz and added,
“The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.”
While the rest of the royal family were not around for the birth, Radar Online’s report suggests they were delighted over the news after being immediately informed. These include The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry.
The new royal baby is the third child of William and Kate who also share Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Though it was believed the Duchess had a difficult pregnancy with her third offspring, it isn’t clear if she had any trouble giving birth to him.
However, the statement from Kensington Palace assured the people that both mother and child were doing well after delivery.
