he Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William have emerged from outside the Lindo Wing holding their new son.
The beaming parents looked delighted as they showed off their third son to the world who was born weighing 8lbs 7oz on St George’s Day.
His older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were taken to meet him in their school uniform nearly six hours after Kate gave birth, but were not present as their parents emerged from the Lindo Wing.
Prince William unbuckled George from his car outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, before he got out in his school uniform, then took Charlotte out of the car and she shyly waved to the cameras.
He then led them to meet their new brother, who is the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s sixth great-grandchild. Bookmakers have reported a surge in bets on the name Arthur for the royal baby, who is fifth in line to the throne.
Earlier, Prince William appeared outside the hospital this afternoon, telling reporters: ‘I’ll be back in a minute.’ Kensington Palace said the baby was born at 11am, after Kate was taken by car before 6am to the Lindo Wing.
The Duchess of Cambridge will be leaving St Mary’s Hospital this evening, the palace said, adding that George and Charlotte have returned to Kensington Palace after meeting their new brother.
William was present for the birth this morning, and both Kate and the child were ‘doing well’, according to a palace spokesman. Senior members of the royal family were all said to be ‘delighted with the news’.
