William's wife Kate gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday, May 2, to cheers from a crowd of well-wishers outside the hospital as Britain celebrated the royal family's new fourth in line to the throne.
The birth was announced to the world in a tweet from Kensington Palace, the couple's London residence, and by a traditional town-crier in a feathered tricorne hat ringing a bell on the steps of the clinic.
A proclamation signed by the royal doctors was also placed on a gilded easel in front of Buckingham Palace, where hundreds of onlookers crowded by the gates to witness the historic moment.
"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8.34 am," the Kensington Palace press office said in a statement.
Mother and baby "are both doing well," it said.
William was present for the birth and the princess weighed 8 pounds and 3 ounces (3.7 kilos). – with reports from Alice Ritchie and Maureen Cofflard, AFP/Rappler.com
