The long wait for the royal baby has come to an end: Buckingham Palace has announced that Katherine Duchess of Cambridge, the wife of Prince William, has given birth. This was the official press release:
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4:24pm. The baby weighs 8lbs 6oz.”
The as of yet unnamed boy is currently third-in-line for the throne of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, as well the remainder of the Commonwealth nations. Congrats to Will and Kate!
