Buckingham Palace on Monday announced the birth of a boy to Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton, placing a framed proclamation on an easel at the palace gates, which read:

“Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4:24 today,” the statement proclaimed, more than four hours after the birth. “Her royal highness and the child are both doing well.”

The announcement came more than 12 hours after Buckingham Palace said Monday morning that the 31-year-old duchess had arrived at St. Mary’s Hospital in London in the early stages of labor. No name was immediately announced of the child who now sits third in line to the throne.
