Kensington Palace previously announced in a statement on Monday that Kate, 36, gave birth to an 8 pound, 7 ounce baby boy at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. Per royal protocol, the arrival of the new prince was also announced outside Buckingham Palace.

“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 11:01 a.m. today. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well,” the announcement, which was signed by four members of St. Mary’s medical staff, read.
