 Kensignton Palace says baby weighs 8lb 6oz ..

Ed Perkins, Press Secretary to Prince William, emerged from the Lindo wing in the past few minutes with a wry smile on his face and a document in hand.

He passed it through the window of a blue jaguar, which took off… no doubt in the direction of the Palace.

Official statement from Kensington Palace on birth

The full statement from Kensington Palace:

Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4.24pm.

The baby weighs 8lbs 6oz.

The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.

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.

Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight.

The good news is that both the boy and his mother are doing well. She will be spending the night in hospital. Both families have been informed.

So, the UK is going to have male monarchs for some time to come.

*whispering* : I hope they don’t give him a name like “east” or “south” .. You know.. Just saying!!!
Congrats KATE!! 🙂 😀
