Watch Live: Kate and William Leave Hospital With New Baby Girl – NBCNews.com
Royal baby watchers everywhere are rejoicing:The world’s newest princess has been introduced!
Just hours after giving birth to a girl, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, stepped outside the hospital with husband Prince William and their newest bundle of royal joy.
The tiny highness was born at 8:34 a.m. local time, weighing in at 8 pounds, 3 ounces. Her name has not yet been revealed. She is fourth in line to the throne and bears the title Princess of Cambridge.
Kate, 33, gave birth in the Lindo Wing of London’s St. Mary’s Hospital on Saturday morning, just two and a half hours after William drove her to the hospital. Both mother and baby are “doing well,” Kensington Palace said. The baby girl is the second child for the two: George will be 2 in July.
Kate, William and George — who was born at the same hospital as his little sister — went home a day after his birth in 2013. Many women at the time praised Kate for not trying to hide her postpartum baby-bump as she introduced George to eager onlookers.
