Kate Middleton Presents Baby Boy To The World Seven Hours After Giving Birth!
Just hours after giving birth to her third child, Kate Middleton presented him to the world looking every bit the royal that she is.
An easel with the royal announcement was put on display outside Buckingham Palace in London by footman Heather McDonald and senior footman Olivia Smith. The notice read: ‘Hey Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 11.01am today. Hey Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.’
A palace spokesman said: ‘Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 11.01am. The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well. 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.’
Within a matter of hours Kate Middleton and husband Prince William stood outside the hospital in front of a barrage of photographers to show off their son and new prince to the world. Observers noted that Kate’s stylist was seen leaving the hospital a mere few hours before the couple came out for the press. Which may explain how the Duchess managed to give birth, get a blow dry and put on a frock within a few hours!
The Duchess of Cambridge, looked stunning in a red shift dress with a pair of low nude suede pumps from Gianvito Rossi, which you can buy here for $675. The new prince was wearing a white baby hat and was wrapped in a white blanket.
Many observers were quick to point out that her look was very similar to Princess Diana’s when she left the hospital after giving birth to Harry.

The newest royal baby was born on St.George’s Day so will share his birthday with the patron saint of England.
When quizzed about the baby’s name Prince William kept things quiet. ‘You’ll find out soon!’ He also joked that he and Kate would have ‘Thrice worry now!’
His older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were taken to meet him in their school uniform nearly six hours after Kate gave birth.
The Queen and Prince Philip were amongst the first to offer their congratulations to the couple in a Palace statement:
‘My wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild. It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their first boy.
Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone’s life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months, so I am enormously proud and happy to a grandfather for the first time and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future.’
A huge congratulations to the royal couple on the safe arrival of their bundle of joy who will be fifth in line to the throne, ahead of uncle Prince Harry.
