Ending all speculation, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has given birth to a baby boy on April 23. The news was tweeted by the official account of Kensington Palace. The 36-year-old Duchess was admitted to the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital, by road, along with the Duke of Cambridge and the anticipation and the excitement regarding the birth of the child was running high.
A couple coming out from the same hospital witnessed it first hand as they were unwittingly caught amidst all the media frenzy, and were applauded by the people and media persons who had gathered outside. They were even clicked with their child outside the hospital where they could be seen happily posing outside. James Longman, ABC News’ foreign correspondent shared their picture and wrote, “Unsuspecting couple have new baby – and find the world’s press waiting outside.”

The royal couple already has two children, Prince George (4), and Princess Charlotte, (2). Both of them were born in the same hospital. The third child will be fifth in line to the British throne behind the two siblings, William and grandfather Prince Charles.
