Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son, Kensington Palace officially reports. The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. It is known that her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, was present for the birth to support Kate. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.

“The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.

Big day for Royals 

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, 36, went into the early stages of labor and was taken to the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s hospital, on Monday morning, London time. Her husband, Prince William, 35, was by her side, according to Kensington Palace.

“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London earlier this morning in the early stages of labor,” the statement reads.

Kate was admitted to the same hospital where she gave birth to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

A few days earlier the Royal Palace celebrated the Queen’s 92nd birthday with a concert bash at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night. Kate was absent from the festivities.

Kensington Palace reported that the baby was due in April, but the exact date was never opened. Earlier this month, yellow signs appeared outside of the Lindo Wing announcing parking restrictions from April 9-30 because of an “event”.

Baby name theories

Following the big news, speculation continues about what the baby will be called.

For Kate and William first two children, the Duke and Duchess chose traditional names, seen as a tribute to previous members of the royal family. Perhaps this time ultimate name choice might also reflect the Middleton side of the family.

“If it’s a boy, they could call it Philip Michael. Philip after the duke and Michael after Catherine’s father,” mused John Loughrey, 63. “If it’s a girl, would be nice if they called it Elizabeth, after the queen, or Victoria or Mary,” he said.

Experts say there’s a small chance the Royal parent will choose some modern or extraordinary name, just like Kardashians like to do.

“Tradition plays a huge part in the British Royal Family, even in the 21st Century,” says Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine.

“It will probably be something we have heard attributed to a prince or princess before. It’s quite likely to follow the traditional route that William and Kate seem to favour.”

British bookies do not waste their time and already have started to take bets. If the baby is a girl, then Alice, Mary and Victoria are the hot favorites. If a boy, then Arthur, Albert and Jack are top picks. And to be fair to the bookies, George and Charlotte were two of their top picks for the other Cambridge children.

“Alice is trendy at the moment for middle and upper class — it’s not completely boring like Elizabeth or Mary and the other sort of names well known for royals,” said Rupert Adams, a spokesman for the bookmaker William Hill. He said that for Prince George, they took in about 1 million pounds in bets; for Charlotte, it was about 800,000 pounds.
