Kate Middleton and Prince William have welcomed a baby boy, a rep for the royal family has confirmed.

According to the press release, the Duchess of Cambridge and her son are "both doing well" and will remain in the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in London overnight. The future King of England was born at 4:24pm, weighing in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces. Kate was admitted to hospital around 5:30am local time, and Prince William was by his wife's side during the delivery.

The statement continued, "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry & families have been told and are delighted." Prince William said in a separate statement, "We could not be happier."

No word yet on the baby's name, but he will be third in line to the throne, following grandfather Prince Charles and father William. Prince William's brother, Prince Harry, is now fourth in line.

BREAKING NEWS - Kate Middleton In Labor, Prince William By Her Side

Kate Middleton checked into the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in Paddinton, west London at 6am and Prince William is at her side, royal family has confirmed.

A spokesperson for Kensington Palace has said "Kate went into labor naturally and things are progressing well."

Though Middleton's due date was previously said to be last weekend, a source told The Telegraph that staffers at St. Mary's had been prepped for a July 19th date.

“A small number of staff at St. Mary’s who might be called upon when the Duchess gives birth were told they had to remain teetotal for a month before the due date,” the insider told the British tabloid. ”They were told the due date was July 19, meaning they couldn’t drink from June 19 onwards. Only a handful of people were told because there are very few hospital staff who might be needed in the case of an emergency.”

On Thursday Kate Middleton made an appearance in Southampton, England to name Princess Cruises' new ship, the Royal Princess, and this is her final solo engagement before taking maternity leave.

The Duchess covered up her baby bump in a Hobbs dalmatian print coat, and we still can't believe she's due to give birth on July 11. She's on the same time schedule as Kim Kardashian, yet she only looks like she's in her second trimester!

Kate smiled after she smashed a bottle of champagne against the hull of the vessel, and she later enjoyed a performance by the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines Portsmouth and The Pipe Band of 1st Battalion Irish Guards.

Kate Middleton Almost Admits That She's Having A Baby Girl

Mar 6, 2013 08:29 AM

Kate Middleton stopped by the National Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby, England on Tuesday, and when given a teddy bear by a local woman, the Duchess said, "Thank you, I'll take that for my d--," before cutting herself off.

When a guest asked Kate if she was about to say "daughter," she smiled and replied coyly, "We're not telling." Another witness overheard the exchange and told reporters, "I said to her, 'You were going to say daughter weren't you?' and she said, 'No, we don't know.'"

Us Magazine reports that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently learned the sex of their baby, "but they've only told their parents." In all fairness, Kate probably didn't know when she purchased nursery furniture from Petit Tresor back in December, but the room does have a decidedly feminine feel!

As far as the royal family is concerned, the sex of their child has nothing to do with whether they will rule the country. Queen Elizabeth II recently stated that if William and Kate's firstborn was a daughter she will be called "Princess" and referred to as Her Royal Highness. Additionally, the Succession the Crown Bill decrees that William and Kate's firstborn will be the heir to the throne regardless of gender.

Pregnant Bikini Photos Of Kate Middleton To Be Published By Italian Magazine

Feb 12, 2013 12:40 PM


The same Italian magazine that published topless photos of Kate Middleton last September has now gotten their hands on pictures the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge in a bikini while on vacation in Mustique.

St. James Palace has confirmed that Chi magazine has the pics, and they issued the following statement:

    We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas. This is a clear breach of the couple’s right to privacy.

In September 2012, the British royal family took France's Closer magazine to court after they published the first topless photos of the duchess. A judge ruled in favor of the royal family, and the publication was banned from printing or selling the "highly intimate" photos.

Kate Middleton Due To Give Birth In July, Palace Confirms

Jan 14, 2013 10:30 AM

katedue230.jpg Mark your calendars, royal watchers!

Kate Middleton is due to give birth to her first child in July, the Palace confirms.

"Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July. The Duchess's condition continues to improve since her stay at the hospital last month," read a statement from St. James's Palace.

Although Prince William's wife was suffering from severe morning sickness at the beginning of her pregnancy, it sounds like she's on the mend. Although rumors of twins have been rampant, a 12-week scan showed that the British beauty is carrying just one heir in her belly.

Miss Middleton is believed to be about 14 weeks pregnant, and although we have yet to see a distinct baby bump, we caught a glimpse of the beginnings of one when she attended the unveiling of her official portrait last week.

We're dying to know if she's expecting a prince or a princess!

Victim Of Kate Middleton Prank Hanged Herself, Left Three Suicide Notes

Dec 13, 2012 10:15 AM

kate-mi-nurse-230.jpgJacintha Saldanha, the nurse in the Kate Middleton prank call scandal who committed suicide last week, hanged herself with a scarf last week and left several suicide notes, according to UK authorities.

Saldanha's body was discovered by co-workers at her hospital living quarters, and the coroner says she also suffered "some injuries to her wrist." Officials added that Saldanha left behind three suicide notes; two discovered near her body and another one near her belongings.

On December 4, 2DayFM DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian called the King Edward VII hospital pretending to be Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth, and Saldanha, who had been caring for Middleton during her stay, fell for the prank. Saldanha then passed the Aussie DJs on to another nurse, who gave away confidential details about the pregnant Duchess. Three days later, she was found dead.

Southern Cross Austereo, who owns 2Day FM, said on Monday that they "terminated" the Australian radio show and plan to implement "a company-wide suspension of prank calls."
