The Royal Baby has been born! The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a boy today at 4:24PM London time. The boy weighed in at 8lbs 6oz. According to Guardian, mother and child are doing fine and will remain in the hospital overnight.
The son is 3rd in line to the British Throne behind proud papa Prince William and first time grandfather Prince Charles. This is the third great-grandchild for the Queen.
The official announcement was going to be made via traditional means of an easel placed just inside the forecourt gates in front of Buckingham Palace, however as the daylight began to fade in London, alternative plans to make an announcement to the press were put into place.
