Kate Middleton gave birth today to a healthy baby girl, huzzah! No more awful morning sickness to deal with. Now she and Prince William are parents to two children, Prince George and this new daughter, whose name is yet to be announced. Here’s what we do know, from BBC News:
The princess – who is fourth in line to the throne – was delivered at 08:34 BST on Saturday after a short labour.
The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth of the 8lbs 3oz (3.7kg) baby.
The couple emerged from the hospital to crowds of well-wishers and the world’s media. They stood on the steps briefly before heading back into the hospital to put the princess in a car seat. Prince William then drove them to Kensington Palace.
They did not speak to the media.
The duchess had been in hospital for just over 12 hours before leaving.
The baby was born less than three hours after the couple arrived at the Lindo Wing, at St Mary’s Hospital.
What a speedy delivery!
The report also adds that it may take “a few days” for the name announcement. Apparently, the top names people are betting on (and yes, people are betting on this), are Alice, followed by Charlotte, then Elizabeth, then Victoria. Diana is also a guess. Anyone want to throw their hat into the ring?
And yes, we already have photos of the newborn:
Congratulations to the royal couple!
