Royal Baby: Duchess of Cambridge Gives Birth to a Boy, Fifth in Line to the British Crown

Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to a baby boy on Monday morning at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s hospital, the same place where she had her other two children, according to Kensington Palace. Her husband, Prince William, 35, was by her side.

“The baby weighed 8lbs 7oz,” Kensington Palace said in a tweet. “The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”

According to tradition, news of the birth will be displayed on an easel in front of Buckingham Palace.

Catherine and the Duke of Cambridge arrived at the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, in central London shortly before 6:00 BST on Monday.

Catherine has been on maternity leave since making a last royal visit to a charity lunch in London on 22 March.

The baby, whose title will be HRH Prince of Cambridge, will be fifth in line to the throne and the Queen’s sixth great-grandchild.

The birth will be announced with an email to the press and a celebratory tweet posted on the Kensington Palace Twitter feed.

Consultant obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston and consultant gynaecologist Alan Farthing are the two senior royal doctors who oversaw the birth.

Both were called in for the arrival of Prince George in 2013 and Princess Charlotte in 2015.

Favourite names at the bookmakers include Mary, Alice, Alexandra, Elizabeth and Victoria for a girl and Arthur, Albert, Frederick, James and Philip for a boy.

The duchess’s pregnancy was announced in October.

The child, born on Monday, St George’s Day, will share a birthday with Lady Gabriella Windsor – the daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, who was born at the Lindo Wing on 23 April 1981.

The baby has just missed arriving on the Queen’s birthday, which was on Saturday.
