Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their firstborn son, Prince George Alexander Louis, July 22, 2013 at St. Mary's Hospital in London. The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth in a private suite in the hospital's exclusive Lindo Wing, the same place where Princess Diana gave birth to both William and Harry.
Kensington Palace announced that the couple's child weighed in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces and arrived at 4:24 p.m. local time.
"It was very emotional, it is such a special time," the Duchess told reporters outside the hospital.
"We could not be happier," Prince William added. "He's got her looks, thankfully."
Despite being, well, a baby, Prince George entered the world already third in line to the throne behind his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his dad, Prince William. Prince Harry was bumped down to No. 4 in line.
This is the first time since 1894 that three male heirs to the throne have been alive at the same time.
Prince George has a lot to look forward to as he arrives at his new spacious home inside Kensington Palace.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have prepared an incredibly inviting and safe sanctuary to welcome their baby, sparing no expense to ensure it's absolutely perfect in every way.
In the months leading up to the birth, his mother was spotted shopping at high-end London boutiques as well as getting tips from interior designer Kelly Hoppen.
While growing up inside the famous London landmark, Prince George can look forward to plenty of famous visitors and family members.
On Kate's side of the family, Prince George will bond with grandparents Michael and Carole Middleton as well as Aunt Pippa Middleton.
With William, the baby will enjoy family time with Uncle Prince Harry and grandparents Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall.
We can't wait to watch Prince George grow up into a dashing young man and future king.
