The royal baby is none other than a baby boy! Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, and husband Prince William welcomed the royal baby on Monday who is also their first child. After a long wait and countless guessing games as to the gender of the royal baby, it is now revealed. The royal baby was born at 4:24 p.m. and weighed a health 8 pounds 6 ounces, according to the CNN.
The royal family has not yet announced the name of the royal baby. However, he will officially be known as His or Her Royal Highness Prince or Princess [Name] of Cambridge.
Kate Middleton checked into St. Mary's Hospital in London early Monday morning and was reported to be in labor for hours, as England and the world waited anxiously for the announcement of the royal baby.
The hospital, next to Paddington Station in London, is where William and his brother Prince Harry were born, according to the report.
A bulletin containing the announcement will also be taken by car to Buckingham Palace to be placed on an easel at the palace gates for the public to see. Initially, officials had planned to place the bulletin on the easel before issuing the news electronically, but changed course shortly before the birth news came.
The royal baby boy will be third in line to the British throne, behind Prince Charles and William. William is second in line, right behind his father, Prince Charles. The baby moves ahead of Prince Harry, who's now fourth in line.
