ROYAL BABY: KATE MIDDLETON AND PRINCE WILLIAM WELCOMES NEW BABYGIRL
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has given birth to a baby girl, royal officials said Saturday. Kensington Palace said in a brief statement that Middleton has "safely" delivered a daughter at 8:34 a.m. London time, less than three hours after she was admitted to a hospital.
The princess is fourth in line to the throne and the fifth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II . The statement said that senior royals have been informed, and "are delighted with the news."
Kate, who wed William in April 2011, gave birth to Prince George at the same hospital in July 2013.
Officials are not expected to announce the name of the newborn immediately. When George was born, officials waited two days before announcing his name.
