Prince William and Kate Middleton became parents of an 8 lb. 6 ounce baby boy late Monday afternoon.

Both mother and child were reported doing well and will remain in the hospital overnight.

Prince William was present for the birth at 4:24 p.m., according to a press release from the royal household.

The release also said the name of the baby, the couple’s first, would be announced “in due course.”

The baby will be third in line to the throne after his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father.

Crowds massed outside Buckingham Palace where a formal announcement of the baby’s birth was posted to cheers Monday night.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at St. Mary’s Hospital – where William and his brother Harry also were born – early Monday morning.

It was not immediately clear how long labor lasted or whether the child was delivered by natural birth or caesarian section.

Representatives of the world's press had been gathered for days outside of St. Mary's Hospital. The Duchess' exact due date had been a closely guarded secret, but the general sense was that the royal baby's arrival was overdue by at least one or two days.

Despite a rough start to the pregnancy, when she was hospitalized for acute morning sickness, the 31-year-old Kate made a number of public appearances that were halted only near the end of her term.

I wonder how much longer we will pay for these people to live, the Royal Family are just rich useless retards. Could you imagine if we stopped paying them and used the money to, well, I don't know, help people who actually require money? I don't care about this flipping baby, I don't like a Baby that was just born and likely has gifts more expensive than my car. This baby can go F itself.

Really, give life to lunatics, rapists and murderers so they can carry on draining resources, but 'I wonder how much longer we will pay for these people to live' for the Royal Family?

Does Australia actually give money to England or is it like Canada where our taxes only pay for their stay in Canada and when she's acting on our behalf?

It's pretty much the same as Canada. The only country that really pays her is England.

Better than hearing about the next murder or killing spree that went on that day..

Nah, I meant people who require and deserve money.

maybe the queen can finally step down knowing that her legacy is secured.

actually the royals generate far more money in tourism than they are ever payed by the government.

It doesn't cost that much and provides a lot of 'free' entertainment to the masses. Royalty isn't a bad thing.

 

Having a president or a similar system would cost just as much. They've done the calculations for Belgium recently (since our old king stepped down for his son) and turns out a monarchy is less costly than a republic. And more fun. The atmosphere on the national holiday at the Royal Palace was great.

 

Just because you don't agree doesn't mean the majority does. There are other ways for the government to save money that would be a lot more effective. (Like not bothering with a porn filter.)

Exactly.

 

And I really can't see the Queen ever stepping down :p She'll go on 'till she's 120.
