Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and also known as Princess Catherine, gave birth to an eight-pound, six-ounce boy at 4:24 pm. (Greenwich Mean Time), on Tuesday (July 22).
The birth was natural and Kate was in labor for about eight hours, about four hours short of the average 12 hours for first time mothers.
Hundreds of well-wishers gathered outside the hospital for the second day as Kate made her recovery.
Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, stopped by to see the baby today, becoming the first family members to drop in on the new parents.
Carole Middleton said the baby was “absolutely beautiful” and that Kate and William were getting along “fabulously,” according to London’s Daily Mail.
The new-born outweighed both his father, who was seven-pounds, one and a half ounces at birth in 1982 and grandfather, Prince Charles, who was seven-pounds, six-ounces at birth in 1948, according to the palace.
The baby, who is yet unnamed, will be the future King of England. He is third in line behind Prince Charles and Prince William.
Kate cradled him in her arms while William waved to the crowd. Check out the photo above. Click on it to supersize it, and follow TheImproper on Twitter for all the latest royal updates.
