On Monday morning, at about 11:01 AM local time, Prince William and Duchess Kate welcomed their third child into the world, a baby boy, the fifth in line for the British throne. The happy news was confirmed by Kensington Palace via Twitter and the post mentioned that both the mother and the baby are feeling well. Also, that the father was present there when the Duchess was giving birth. It’s interesting that after only seven hours after giving birth, the two royals emerged from St. Mary’s Hospital, the same place where she also gave birth to the other two royal heirs.
She was wearing a red dress, fairly reminiscent of the one that Princess Diana wore, holding their newborn, with Prince William by her side. The royal couple posed a bit for the photographers and then got back inside. Only a few minutes later, they emerged again, this time with the newborn into a carrier, and got into a car that was waiting for them. The two elder siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, had already met their new brother and went back home too.
Royal baby number 3 has arrived
According to reports, it seems that Duchess Kate arrived at the hospital in London on Monday morning, in the early stages of labor. She was immediately admitted to the Lindo Wing, the same place where she also gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Prince William was with her as they arrived in a car. The name of the third baby of the royal couple is yet to be officially announced.
Back in September, the Duchess announced that she was pregnant with her third child. As it was the case with her other two pregnancies, she suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition that causes acute morning sickness during the early stages of the pregnancy.
