The Prince of Cambridge


Born: 22 July 2013
Birthplace: London, England
Best known as:

The son of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge

The Prince of Cambridge is the first child of Prince William and his wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.  The Prince of Cambridge was born at St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, West London, on a Monday afternoon at 4:24 pm local time; he weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces, according to an official announcement from Buckingham Palace. His name was not immediately announced. The boy is third in line to the British throne, after his father and his grandfather, Prince Charles. He replaces his uncle, Prince Harry, in that role, with Harry now becoming fourth in line to the throne. The official announcement from Buckingham Palace was simple: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4:24 pm today. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well." 

Extra credit:

The Prince of Cambridge is the first grandchild of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, and the step-grandchild of Prince Charles's wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles... The medical team that delivered the baby was led by the Queen's gynecologist, Dr. Marcus Setchell.
