The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a boy, her third child and second son.
A Kensington Palace statement said Catherine and her son, who is yet to be named, are “both doing well.”
Kensington Palace said the name of the baby would be “announced in due course,” while a formal notice of the birth had been posted on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.
The new arrival, who was born at St Mary’s Hospital, London, is fifth in line to the throne and the Queen’s sixth great-grandchild.
Prime Minister Theresa May tweeted about the news. She said:
“My warmest congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their baby boy. I wish them great happiness for the future.”
