The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William welcomed a baby girl on Saturday, couple’s second child and a sister to one-year-old Prince George.

The royal family’s newest member was born at 8:34 a.m., some 2-1/2 hours after Kate Middleton was admitted in the early stages of labour to St Mary’s Hospital, West London, the couple’s Kensington Palace residence said in a statement.

The baby princess will be fourth in line to the throne behind her brother George, father William and grandfather Prince Charles, pushing her uncle Prince Harry down a place in the royal chain of command.

The baby, whose name is yet to be pronounced, weighed 8 lbs 3 oz. Prince William was in attendance at the birth, the palace said.

Both families of the couple had been informed, including the new baby’s great-grandparents Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. She becomes the 89-year-old queen’s fifth great-grandchild.
