Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their second child together, a baby girl, in London on Saturday (May 2).
Just three hours after Middleton arrived at the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital, Kensington Palace announced the birth viaTwitter.
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8.34am. The baby weighs 8lbs 3oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well,” the tweet read.
In keeping with tradition, the royal family formally announced the new princess on a gold easel in front of Buckingham Palace.
The name of the newborn princess has yet to be released.
The couple will introduce their bundle of joy to the world outside St. Mary’s Hospital, as they did with Prince George after his birth.
