(George weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces when he was born; Charlotte was 8 pounds, 3 ounces.) Prince William was present for the birth. “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,” the Palace said in a statement. “Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well,” it also said. Kate went into labor in the middle of the night, according to sources. Both Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, who turns 3 in May, were also born at St. Mary’s Hospital. As is tradition, the framed notice of the birth is on display on a ceremonial easel on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace. The framed bulletin was brought out of the Privy Purse Door and carried across the forecourt to be placed on the easel. „The name of the baby boy will be announced in due course,” the palace said. The birth comes less than a month before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, which takes place on May 19. Kate is expected to attend the wedding.
