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."
