It’s a baby boy for Kate and Prince William


The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby boy on Monday thereby ending week long speculations about the gender of the royal baby. Kate and Prince’s bundle of joy was born at 4:24 p.m. (1524 GMT), weighing 8 lbs and 6 oz. His name has not yet been revealed but he will be known as Prince of Cambridge. 

Both the mother and the child are going fine but all the family members are delighted with the news.

"Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight," said a statement from the Royal Household, which sidestepped tradition to announce the birth with a press release.

"The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news," it read.

No sooner the news of the child birth broke out well-wishers and media gathered outside St. Mary's Hospital in west London.

Kate Middleton and Prince William arrived at the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington, central London, at around 6:00 am in the midst of a summer thunderstorm after she developed a labor pain around 6 in the morning in a private car without police escort. The delivery was performed by a top-notch team of medical staff.  Present during the delivery were former queen's gynaecologist Marcus Setchell, obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston, and consultant neonatologist Sunit Godambe.

Congrats to Kate and William!
