Britain Welcomes New Royal Baby

"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101 hrs", the palace said in a statement on Twitter.

A bit later, another couple showed off their baby to the cameras, posing with their newborn on the steps where the royal couple will debut their newborn.

Prince William will travel to Israel this summer, in the first-ever official visit by a member of the British royal family to the Jewish state. She gave birth at 11:01 a.m. local time.

Chocolatiers at Cadbury World created a chocolate rocking horse for the new baby, after previously making a chocolate pram for Princess Charlotte and a chocolate cot with toys for Prince George.

Television crews, journalists and royal fans have set up camp outside the hospital for the "royal baby watch" since early April in anticipation of the arrival.

The duchess, who was wearing a striking, raspberry-red dress, cradled her baby as the couple waved to well-wishers.

They're well known around these parts too. "We're very proud of our monarchy". Throngs of reporters waited for updates outside the Lindo Wing, a luxurious private maternity ward in London that has often been used by the royals and which boasts a comprehensive wine list for celebrating parents. He will be the sixth great grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II, who celebrated her 92nd birthday on Saturday. He is Queen Elizabeth's sixth great-grandchild.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge depart the Lindo Wing with their newborn daughter at St Mary's Hospital on May 2, 2015 in London, England.

In an age of social media, the British Royal Family are using the ideal blend of modern technology and ancient customs to celebrate the arrival of Prince William and Duchess Catherine's third child - a boy!

Bookmakers have Mary, Alice, Victoria, Alexandra and Maria as the favorite girls' names, with Arthur, Albert, Frederick, James and Philip the most popular boys' names.

A 2013 change to the law means the boy will not supplant older sister Charlotte in the line of succession.

Under the law, created to end male primogeniture for William's children, any boys born after October 28, 2011 could not overtake their elder sisters. Consultant obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston and consultant gynaecologist Alan Farthing were the two senior royal doctors overseeing the birth. George has seven, while Charlotte has five. At the time, she was said to be suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, which involves nausea and vomiting more severe than the typical morning sickness many women suffer during early pregnancy.

The pretty knee-length dress had cap sleeves and an empire waist, while the then 31-year-old's long brunette locks were as glossy and flawless as ever, thanks no doubt to hair stylist Amanda Cook Tucker, who was seen arriving at the hospital earlier that day. They got married in a pageant-packed ceremony at Westminster Abbey in April 2011 and have since become well-known across the global stage. The marriage helped breathe new life into Britain's monarchy after years of crisis.

For her two previous deliveries, Kate had a 23-strong team of top medics either working or on standby.

Kate's maid of honor famously stole the show at her and William's wedding with a figure-hugging dress.

The queen also played a prominent role at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in London last week, where it was announced that Charles would succeed her as head of the network of mainly former British colonies.
