Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate have welcomed their third royal baby – a boy.
The Kensington Palace announced earlier in the day that Kate Middleton was in the early stages of labour, and had been taken to the St. Mary’s Hospital.
Just seven hours after giving birth to her third child, Kate Middleton appeared on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital on Monday evening with Prince William by her side to introduce their new baby boy to the world.
The royal baby was wrapped in a white shawl in his mother’s arms as he was presented to the enthusiastic crowds of well-wishers who gathered outside the hospital, anxiously awaiting a peek at the newborn prince.
Kate looked stunning in a red dress with a white collar (almost identical to the dress Princess Diana wore after giving birth to Prince Harry) by Jenny Packham after a visit from her go-to stylist, Natasha Archer, who was spotted leaving the Lindo Wing an hour before the royal gave birth.
The new prince, who was born at St Mary’s Hospital, London, at 11:01 BST, weighing 8lb 7oz, is fifth in line to the throne.
Earlier, Prince George and Princess Charlotte visited their younger brother at the Lindo Wing.
Kensington Palace said the Duchess of Cambridge and her son, who is yet to be named, are “both doing well”.
They then returned inside to collect their newborn son’s car seat before driving away towards Kensington Palace.
