Kate Middleton Gives Birth to Royal Baby!
The boy, who will be king after Prince Charles and Prince William, was born safely to William and his wife Kate at 4.24pm (1524 GMT) and weighed 8lbs 6oz (3.8 kilos).
He has not officially been named yet but George is the overwhelming favourite with bookmakers, followed by James, Alexander and Louis. Kate had a lengthy labour after being admittecd to hospital in London at around 6:00am (0500 GMT).
Mother and baby are expected to leave hospital on Tuesday. In the meantime, Prince William has put out a brief statement saying: “We could not be happier.”
The baby’s name may be announced when the family leaves the hospital, CNN’s Foster reported. Prince William’s name was announced a few days after birth, his brother Harry’s on departure from hospital.
Some British parents have delayed naming their newborns in recent days in hopes of either copying or avoiding the royal name, he said. British bookmakers favor the names James and George.
The child’s title will be His Royal Highness Prince (the baby’s name) of Cambridge.
