Kate Middleton has given birthday to a baby boy.

The Duke and Duchess welcomed their third child on Monday morning at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, in London, according to Kensington Palace.

The palace confirmed in a tweet that the baby was born at 11.01 a.m., weighing 8 pounds, 7 ounces.

“The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth,” the palace said, adding: “Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”

Their first two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were born in the same hospital.

The new baby is fifth in line to the throne, bumping Prince Harry to sixth place. His title will be HRH Prince of Cambridge, but his name is not yet known.

The baby is also Queen Elizabeth II’s sixth great-grandchild.

The Duchess is being cared for by consultant obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston and consultant gynaecologist Alan Farthing, both of whom were part of the team who delivered George and Charlotte, according to The Telegraph.

In a separate tweet, the palace added that “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news.”
