Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed a baby boy on Monday.
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at [11:01 a.m.],” a tweet from Kensington Palace revealed. “The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.”
“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well,” the tweet continued.
This is the third child for the royal couple.
William and Kate married in 2011 and have two other children: Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, who turns 3 next month. Both were born at the same hospital, as were William and his younger brother Prince Harry.
The baby is Queen Elizabeth II’s sixth great-grandchild and fifth in line to the throne, after grandfather Prince Charles, father Prince William and the two older siblings.
The new arrival bumps Prince Harry to sixth place in the line of succession.
The 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge carried out her last official engagement on March 22 before going on maternity leave.
