The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed the latest member to the Royal Family as they introduced their new son seven hours after his birth from the St. Mary’s hospital in London.
Kate, who was dressed in a red dress, and Prince William, waved to the cheering crowd that gathered outside of the Lindo Wing where the child was born at 11:01 a.m.
The little prince however, has yet to be named but a Ladbrokes spokesperson claims that Arthur is the current frontrunner for the name of the newborn.
Prince William joshed with the crowd as he placed his son in a safety seat in the back of a Land Rover Discovery, before heading off to Kensington Palace with his Kate.
“Thrice the worry now,” William was quoted as telling reporters, holding up three fingers with a smile.
“We didn’t keep you waiting too long this time,” before adding, “very happy, very excited, thank you.”
The new prince, who is the couple’s third child, is fifth in line to the British throne.
The prince is a little brother for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs,” said the Kensington Palace in a tweet shortly after the prince was born.
“The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz,” it added.
Prince William was present for the birth, and Kate and bub are “both doing well.”
The Duchess of Cambridge was rushed to the St. Mary’s Hospital in London in the early hours of April 23.
The Palace followed up with another tweet, confirming members of both families have already been appraised of the situation and are “delighted” with the news.
The new prince, which is the couple’s third child, has already met his older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who left the hospital via a back exit after entering in front of the waiting media and crowds.
