Its a boy.
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 couples 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 babys birth was posted to cheers Monday night.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at St. Marys 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.
Prince Charles issued a statement Monday night saying, "Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild. It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy.

Triplets! Two boys have been born on two previous threads!
Congrats to the royal family. I just hope they don’t give the kid a weird name.
Some happy news for a change. Best of luck to the both of them in their new adventure as parents. :)
I was surprised to see that they named the kid Trayvon.
Just hope he doesn’t favor gramps...
Pray it won’t be Mohammed.
How about “Cletus?”
“Schlomo” is good too.
I genuinely believe the Queen's longevity is driven by a desire to not leave the throne in the hands of Prince Charles, the Capitulater. I think her sense of duty to country drives her to live on until maybe Charles decides to pass and leave the real work to William.
Then England would have a King that understands Islam a bit more, having dealt with them face to face while serving in a war against them.
Yes, I know the Monarchy is largely ceremonial, but it is a bully pulpit with the Brits and the UK in general. Imagine the damage Liberal Charles could do...
Loved the hat on the proclaimer guy......LOL
Like Prince or Duke?
Induecourse is a strange name for a baby.
RE: Congrats to the royal family. I just hope they dont give the kid a weird name.
PRINCE TRAYVON THE FIRST !!
Seriously though, my guess is George ( after Elizabeth’s father ).
Metro-sexual and politically correct = Sue!
OMG I just heard they were going to name him “South”
Even stupid ESPN had a watch on in this matter this morning. That Mike and Mike show had a big ta-do about it. Good grief. One, I ain’t English and don’t care. There were millions born today. This kid is another. He may or may not be king in the year 2525.
My vote is for “Cosmo”
The name of the baby will be .. George.
After George Zimmerman (OOOPS), I mean King George, father of the Queen.
Probably will be Moo-ham-ed. The country is going Muzzie anyway. Why not the first Muzzie King.
RE: I was surprised to see that they named the kid Trayvon.
Ahhh, but what if they name him George? ( after all GZ and the Queen’s father have the same name)?
Do we expect Al Sharpton to organize a protest in England?
I don’t accept the concept of royalty, so I couldn’t care less.
Has anyone guessed that they will name the baby after Trayvon yet?
RE: Has anyone guessed that they will name the baby after Trayvon yet?
My guess is George, after Zimmerman ( or maybe after Elizabeth’s dad ).
I’m going to say the same thing here that I said at FB. If you don’t care, then don’t comment. WTF is with all the joy-killers? Grumpy-assed people. It’s a nice story. And while it might not be a big deal to most of us here it’s a big deal to the Brits and it ought to be.
Any time a baby is born it’s a beautiful thing.
Instead of wasting 10 seconds posting how you don’t care how about you just scroll right over it? Does claiming not to care somehow make you a more contentious concerned citizens than the rest of us who actually think a break from the bullshit of our reality is kind of nice? Are we somehow going to forget about the crisis we’re in because a royal baby was born?
Cripes people. smh
He’s in a can.
So why don’t you let him out?
It's running ...
Prince Charles will pass that barrier in a few months.
George III had nine sons. Two became king, two died before George III died, two others died before their brothers the kings died - but three were still alive when Victoria was queen.
I'm still unsure why she became queen instead of her surviving uncles.
Damn, I had “Moon Unit” for 50 bucks.
It’s always nice to see someone “having” a baby instead of murdering it before it has a chance to live.
I couldn’t possibly care less.
Can someone explain why this is news?
And headlining on Drudge, nonetheless.
He’s coming out. First gay prince

This falls lower in the scheme of things than the latest movie start to overdose or sports star who assaulted someone. Or, as my DI in bootcamp would have said about it’s importance: “lower than whale shit and that’s at the bottom of the ocean”.
Maybe the fact that as a people we supposedly set aside any idea of the importance of a monarchy 237 years ago.
Barack Hussein Windsor is my guess, Or William Jefferson
We have a new little wee one, mom is fine, relatives are ecstatic, the Londoners are rejoicing in the streets. At last, happiness news is on the front pages instead of all the negative dreck we are pounded with every day.
All you Labourite socialists, start your own thread on the horrors of the English royal family, and leave us here to enjoy life and it's occasional little new-baby miracles.
And remember, in the midst of all your angst and negativity, we have our own royal families in this country....they just go by different names, like "dynasties." Go after them with your spite.....and leave the Windsors and us alone for a few days of having a jolly good time.
Oh boy I don’t care at all!
Wow your right I didn’t see that point. I feel the Queen is trying to stay long on the throne so by then Charlie will be old himself to take and won’t last long. Remember Diana stated that she would like to see William become King rather than Charles.
Yes your right, Charles coddles Islam yet William and especially Harry have seen up front how the religion of pieces are. So perhaps the future generation will be the ones to save the country.
“Damn, I had Moon Unit for 50 bucks.”
Even before reading your post, I thought it should be “Moon Unit II”, because the name has already been used elsewhere. We sure don’t want any confusion to reign.
What a contrast to a real king who was born in a manger in the city of Bethlehem.
If Christ's birth was happening right now there would be a class of wierd, envy-driven Freepers complaining about all the Gold He was given by the Wise men.
I will guarantee he will not be named John. There hasn’t been a King John or a John in the line of succession since Magna Carta.
Male preference primogeniture. Queen Victoria's Father, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, was the next in line to the throne after the future William IV, but he died in 1820, before either of his elder brothers. However, as he left surviving offspring, (i.e. Victoria) her place in the line of succession was superior to those of her father's younger brothers, regardless of the fact she was female.
I'm still unsure why she became queen instead of her surviving uncles. Primogeniture
