Kensington Palace is going to get a little cozier as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcome their third child into the world.

The Royal Family announced Monday that Duchess Kate gave birth to a son at around 11:00 a.m. at St. Mary’s Hospital in London in the Lindo Wing. The baby, a boy, weighs a reported 8 pounds, 7 ounces (3.8 kilograms).

Prince William and Duchess Kate's two other children are Prince George, born in 2013, and Princess Charlotte, born in 2015. Royal Baby No. 3 is fifth in line to the British throne.

“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well,” Kensington Palace said in a statement. 


The arrival of Queen Elizabeth II’s sixth great-grandchild comes just two days after her 92nd birthday, and less than a week before Kate and Charles’ seventh wedding anniversary on April 29.

Crowds and media in London are stationed outside the hospital’s Lindo Wing.

The name of the child, if tradition stands, will be announced on a gilded easel outside Buckingham Palace within a few days of the child’s birth.

The Royal Family will commemorate another big event in less than a month with the marriage of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle on May 19.
