Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, has given birth to her second royal child!
The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a daughter at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, Kensington Palace announced Saturday.
And oh, the verbiage: “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8:34 a.m.,” the statement read. The likes of which we haven’t seen since…well, since Kate and Will’s first child arrived! (This time, however, the palace simultaneously tweeted the announcement, another tip of the cap to modernity.)
Her daughter automatically becomes fourth in line to the British throne, behind grandpa Prince Charles, papa William and big brother Prince George of Cambridge. (Yes, the new baby jumps uncle Prince Harry in the succession.)
Kate reportedly wants to take a longer maternity leave this time around, as she would like to spend more time with her children before heading back to the palace to continue fulfilling her royal duties.
Congratulations, Kate & William!
