The new Royal baby has arrived

More than a few days passed her due date, the Duchess of Cambridge finally went into labour this morning, entering Lindo Wing at 6am today.

Now, after the world spent the day glued to computers and TVs, we can announce that Kate has given birth to her second child – a healthy baby daughter!

Weighing in at eight pounds and three ounces, the newborn's name is yet to be announced.

The baby was born at 8.34am this morning, and betting odds are favouring Alice for the name.

With the arrival of the new Royal, Harry is now fifth in line to the throne; although we doubt he’s thinking about that right now as he celebrates becoming an uncle for the second time.

Like everyone, we’re obviously dying to get our first glimpse of the little Royal, but for now we wish William and Kate all the luck in the world and hope they really cherish this special time.
