Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was spotted taking a turn around the grounds of Windsor Castle on her beloved black Fell pony, Carltonlima Emma while she awaited news of the birth of the latest royal baby.
The Duchess of Cambridge welcomed an 8lbs 7oz baby boy this morning at 11am.
The Duke of Cambridge today brought his children Prince George and Princess Charlotte to meet their new baby brother nearly six hours after Kate gave birth to a boy weighing 8lbs 7oz on St George’s Day.
Prince William unbuckled George from his car outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, before he got out in his school uniform, then took Charlotte out of the car and she shyly waved to the cameras.
He then led them to meet their new brother, who is the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s sixth great-grandchild. Bookmakers have reported a surge in bets on the name Arthur for the royal baby, who is fifth in line to the throne.
Earlier, Prince William appeared outside the hospital this afternoon, telling reporters: ‘I’ll be back in a minute.’ Kensington Palace said the baby was born at 11am, after Kate was taken by car before 6am to the Lindo Wing.
William was present for the birth this morning, and both Kate and the child were ‘doing well’, according to a palace spokesman.
