“Hear ye! On this day, the 2nd of May, the year 2015, we welcome with humble duty, the second-born of the royal highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The princess is fourth in line to the throne. May our princess be long-lived, happy, and glorious and one day long to reign over. God save the queen!”
Kensington Palace has announced the arrival of a new princess after the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby girl. The baby weighed in at 8 pounds 3 ounces (3.71 kilograms) and the Duke of Cambridge, her father, was present for the birth.

Though she hasn’t been named just yet, the palace said that mother and daughter were both doing well. Members of the Royal Family have been informed and are said to be delighted with the news.

Kate was a number of days overdue and had been taken to the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital at 6 AM this morning.

Police were standing guard outside the entrance to the wing as the world’s media waited for news of the birth. Fans had gathered in anticipation and were delighted at the news of a new princess.

“It’s a girl!”

“You give me sunshine!”
