London - Duchess Kate has given birth to a baby girl, the Palace announced on Saturday afternoon.
"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 08:34," Kensington Palace tweeted.
They went on to share her weight and mentioned that both families had been informed of the new arrival.
We are also happy to report that Catherine and her new baby girl are doing well.
The announcement was greeted by cheers outside the hospital, where die-hard royal fans dressed in patriotic Union Jack gear have been camping out on the sidewalk, eagerly awaiting news. A town crier in elaborate costume loudly declared the news at the hospital's door, clanging his bell to welcome the new royal, AP reported.
The Official Twitter page of Kensington Palace has now also started a new trend welcoming all newborn children who share a birthday with the second royal baby.
They have called on anyone who has welcomed their own baby to share a picture on Twitter using #WelcomeToTheFamily.
Duchess Catherine was taken to the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in West London earlier on Saturday morning in a car, accompanied by Prince William.
The little girl will be fourth in line to the throne, behind her grandfather Prince Charles, father Prince William and 21-month-old brother Prince George.
