It’s a princess!
That was the happy news on Saturday morning, after the Duchess of Cambridge — the British royal also known as Catherine — gave birth to her second child.
The little girl came into the world at 8:34 a.m. (3:34 a.m. ET) Saturday at London’s St. Mary’s Hospital, Kensington Palace announced. She weighed 8 pounds, 3 ounces.
Simply by virtue of being born, the newborn girl is fourth in line for the throne. That’s behind her grandfather Charles, the Prince of Wales; her father, William, who was with his wife at the hospital; and her big brother, Prince George, who was born in July 2013.
The rest of the royal family — including Queen Elizabeth II, the Prince of Wales and Prince Harry — learned of the delivery shortly before the public did, via Twitter.
“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well,” the palace tweeted.
