Her Royal Highness and her child, who becomes third in succession line, are both doing well and remained in hospital overnight.
Their Royal Highnesses Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, have asked well wishers around the world who wish to celebrate the royal birth by giving gifts to give these to underprivileged children and mothers. This reflects the UK’s commitment to ensuring all mothers and children around the world have access to good maternal and newborn health care.
The name of the child is expected to be made public within the next two weeks.
If anyone wishes to send personal messages of congratulations, these can be posted to the @ClarenceHouseTwitter account. Clarence House and Buckingham Palace will also be updating content on The Duke and Duchess’s official website, and on the British Monarchy Facebook page as more information becomes available.
