Congratulations are in order for the royal family: Kate Middleton has officially given birth to the third royal baby! On Monday, April 23rd, Kensington Palace released a statement stating that the new addition arrived at 11:01 local time…and the world is already obsessed. It feels like it’s been years since Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge announced they were expecting a third child, and now we can finally count down the minutes until we get a glimpse of the tiny prince.
The statement from Kensington Palace announced that Kate and William welcomed a healthy son into their world, noting that both mother and baby are doing well.
William and Kate already have two other children: Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two. We don’t know too many details about their new little brother just yet, and we’re anxiously awaiting the name reveal.
The birth of the third baby comes at an exciting time for both William and Kate. The Sun reported yesterday, April 22nd, that Kate’s sister Pippa is pregnant her first child with husband James Matthews. The two will also gain a new sister-in-law when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marry on May 19th, 2018.
Twitter is currently in fine form, full of jokes, well wishes, and reactions that totally nail what we’re all feeling. Check out some of the best below:
