Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Welcome Third

Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge and Wife of Prince William, Duke Of Cambridge, welcomed their third child on Monday, 23rd April. The baby boy was born 11.01 am in the Lindo Wing of the Paddington Hospital, with Prince William by her side. Weighing 8lb, 7oz, their little bundle of joy and HRH are “doing well”, as said in a statement by Kensington Palace.

The Duke and Duchess emerged with beaming smiles outside St Mary’s Hospital, proudly holding the new addition to the royal family. Just before 6pm on Monday, the much loved couple posed on for the cameras outside the central London hospital. The Royal family’s new arrival was wrapped up in a white blanket and could be seen wiggling his little fingers while his parents smiled for the world to see. As he left, Prince William told reporters that he was “very happy, very delighted”.  “Thrice the worry now.” he also added, jokingly.  Although no name has been announced yet, when asked, the Duke said, “You’ll find out soon enough.”

Kensington Palace also tweeted a picture of the picture-perfect couple, captioning the snap, “Welcome to the family.” The new Prince is now fifth in line to the throne and the sixth great-grandchild to the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen.  An easel has also been placed outside Buckingham Palace, announcing the birth of the little Prince, which will remain there for 24 hours. The practice of posting a bulletin outside the Palace to announce a royal birth has been going on since 1837, which is for as long as Buckingham Palace has been the Sovereign’s official residence. We now have another Royal to look out for!
