Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, welcomed baby number three this morning.
Kensington Palace confirmed in a tweet that both mother and baby were doing well, and that Prince William was there for the birth.

Prince Henry of Wales, KCVO, familiarly known as Prince Harry, is a member of the British royal family.
He is the younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales, and is sixth in the line of succession to the British throne.
Kate Middleton, who’s known for her polished and sophisticated sense of style, sported the cherry red dress by designer Jenny Packham, which featured a white lace eyelet Peter Pan collar, while stepping out of the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London on Monday, April 23, 2018.
Middleton and Prince William welcomed the baby boy on April 23, adding a third child to their royal brood; their son Prince George was born in 2013, while their daughter Princess Charlotte was joined them two years later in 2015.
“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
On 31 August 1997, Diana, Princess of Wales died as a result of injuries sustained in a car crash in the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel in Paris.
The Princess of Wales
After becoming Princess of Wales, Diana automatically acquired rank as the third highest female in the United Kingdom Order of Precedence (after the Queen and the Queen Mother), and as typically fifth or sixth in the orders of precedence of her other realms, following the Queen, the relevant viceroy, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales. Within a few years of the wedding, the Queen extended Diana visible tokens of membership in the Royal Family; she lent the Princess a tiara and granted her the badge of the Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II.
From her engagement to the Prince of Wales in 1981 until her death in 1997, Diana was a major presence on the world stage, often described as the “world’s most photographed woman” (although other sources split this title between her and Grace Kelly).
She was noted for her compassion, style, charisma and high-profile charity work, as well as her difficult marriage to the Prince of Wales. Her peak popularity rate in the United Kingdom between 1981 and 2012 was 47%.
In 1999, TIME named Diana one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century. In 2002, Diana was ranked 3rd on the BBC’s poll of the 100 Greatest Britons, outranking The Queen and other British Monarchs.
In February 2013, OCAD University in Toronto, Canada, announced that its new arts centre would be named after her, Princess of Wales Visual Arts Centre, a 25,000 square foot facility.
Princess Diana Drive was named in her memory in Trenton, New Jersey, United States.
Prince William and Kate Middleton gave a special tribute to the late Princess, by naming their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
Kate Middleton has released a set of four photographs taken by her of Prince George holding his baby sister, Charlotte, via social media.
“There was a very warm public response when Princess Charlotte was born, which was very much appreciated by the Duke and Duchess,” The Telegraph quoted a royal source as saying,
“And so they wanted to share these photographs with the public.”
In a dramatic shift to the way previous royal pictures have been distributed to the public, the images were released through Kensington Palace’s official Twitter and Instagram accounts at 9 p.m. last night, along with a series of informal — but no doubt carefully crafted — messages.
In the photographs, Prince George is wearing the same adorably old-fashioned long socks and white shirt look that he sported when he went to the hospital to meet his sister after she was born.
Charlotte is wearing a white romper suit with a knitted sweater.
The pictures were taken in May at Anmer Hall, the Norfolk house on the Queen’s country estate that William and Kate now call home.
