The newest British royal -- a baby boy -- has arrived to parents Kate Middleton and Prince William.
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 11:01hrs,” the palace announced in an official statement. “The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”
The newest royal family member was born at St. Mary’s Hospital in London – just like siblings George, 4, who was at school and Charlotte, 3, at home at Kensington Palace. Kate was admitted to the hospital before 6 a.m. (U.K. time) in the early stages of labor on Monday.
The self-proclaimed Royalist Town Crier walked up to the famous steps of the Lindo Wing and called out, “God Save the Queen,” and announced the birth of the baby prince.
The palace also confirmed that Middleton, 36, suffered again from hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness.
