Prince William and his wife, The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, welcomed another son.

The social media team of the Kensington Palace tweeted out to people waiting for the birth of the royal baby in anticipation: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs. But the new prince is not the heaviest royal baby in recent years, with that title falling to Savannah Phillips - the daughter of the Queen s grandson Peter Phillips - who weighed 8lb 8oz when she was born on December 29 in 2010.

Prince William was in attendance, and the palace said mother and child were both doing well.

The baby will be fifth in line to the throne, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's sixth great-grandchild and a younger brother or sister for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The new arrival, whose name has not yet been announced, joins big brother Prince George, 4, and big sister Princess Charlotte, 2.

The duchess was driven to the exclusive Lindo Wing before 6am on Monday in the early stages of labour, ready for the birth of their third child. "We were here for George and Charlotte and we'll be there for the royal wedding too", he said, referring to Harry and Meghan Markle.
