Prince William and Kate Middleton Welcome Royal Baby No. 2 -- It's a Girl!
By Zach Seemayer
Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their newborn bundle of joy on May 2 and it's a girl!
After checking in to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital at 6:00 a.m. local time, the Duchess of Cambridge safely delivered her daughter at 8:34 a.m., with her husband by her side. The new princess weighed in at 8 lbs. 3 oz, just slightly less than her big brother, Prince George!
"Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well," Kensington Palace said in both a statement and on Twitter. "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."
Now we just await the baby's girl name, which will be styled as Princess [Name] of Cambridge, she will be fourth in the line of Succession, behind her grandpa, her father and her nearly two-year-old adorable brother.
Up until giving birth, the royal couple had managed to keep the sex of baby under wraps -- though grandpa Prince Charles made his preference known! -- causing fans and avid gamblers to take bets on the new baby's gender.
Hundreds of fans are congregated in front of St. Mary's Hospital in London, with some even camping out for days in hopes of seeing the new royal family when Will and Kate leave the hospital with their new addition.
England has been caught up once again in the Royal Baby craze, which first swept the nation in 2013 when the couple welcomed their first child, Prince George, who will be turning two on July 22.
