Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge Has Given Birth To A Girl, Kensington Palace Has Announced

The Duchess Of Cambridge Has Given Birth To A Girl, Kensington Palace Has Announced
 
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was admitted at 6 a.m. local time (0500 GMT) Saturday to the exclusive Lindo wing at St. Mary's Hospital West London on May 2, 2015. The couple's first child, Prince George, was born July 22, 2013 at the same hospital. William, who is on leave from his job as an air ambulance pilot, was at his wife's side in the hospital, as he was for George's birth.

The new baby girl weighs 8lbs 3oz and her father the Duke of Cambridge was also present for the birth, the palace said. The Duchess and the new baby, whose name will be announced "in due course", were both said to be doing well.
 
The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and the baby's uncle Prince Harry had been informed and are "delighted" with the news, the palace added. Kate was a number of days overdue and had been taken to the Lindo wing of St Mary's Hospital at 6 am from her nearby home Kensington Palace.
 
The princess is fourth in line to the throne, the Queen's fifth great-grandchild and a spare to the heir - and Prince George's sister. The Prince of Wales will be overjoyed as he made no secret he wanted his second grandchild to be a girl. Before the birth William and Kate said they did not know the sex of their baby.
 
The baby's name is yet to be announced but the favourites are Alice, which was the name of one of Queen Victoria's daughters and also of the Duke of Edinburgh's mother, and Charlotte - the feminine form of Charles - which could be chosen as a nod to William's father, the Prince of Wales.
 
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may also choose Elizabeth in tribute to the baby's great-grandmother the Queen or perhaps Victoria in honour of the baby's great-great-great-great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria.
