The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby girl, today, at the private Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington.
The new Princess, fourth in line to the British throne, is the second child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, whose first born, Princes George is 21 months old.
The baby girl was much awaited, and was born early this morning following a five hour labour.
The new Her Royal Highness Princess (name yet to be revealed ) of Cambridge weighs a healthy 8lbs 3oz, and both the mother and child are said to be doing well.
Prince William arrived at the hospital with his wife, while the couple's nanny, Maria Borrallo, looked after their son, Prince George, who turns two in July, at Kensington Palace.
Many royal watchers had been desperately hoping for a girl, as the last to be born in the direct line of succession was Princess Anne in 1950.
The new baby in unlikely to ever become the Queen, however, it is not unheard of a second in line to accede the throne.
News of the baby's birth came in the form of a press release to media organisations followed by official announcements on social media channels on Twitter and Instagram.
