Finally the wait is over!
The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to the couple’s first child – a boy – today at St. Mary’s Hospital in London.
A royal aide announced the good news with a proclamation signed by the doctors who delivered the wee bairn.
Middleton quetly arrived at the hospital at 6 a.m. local time after going into labor. The two entered the hospital through a side door and were driven from Kensington Palace via a two-car convoy.
The palace announced that it was making a last minute change to the birth announcement plans as a formal announcement was made prior to the formal signed bulletin being posted on display.
Queen Elizaqbeth changed the rules on the title regardless of gender with a Letters Patent stating: “All the children of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales should enjoy the style, title and attribute of Royal Highness with the titular dignity of Prince or Princess prefixed to their Christian names.”
The decree overturned the previous rule set in place by Elizabeth’s grandfather, King George V, that would have prevented a daughter, regardless of birth order, to rule the British.
Kate gave birth in a private suite in St. Mary’s exclusive Lindo Wing, the same place where Princess Diana had Will and Harry.
