The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's at 6am BST and had a quick delivery. Her Royal Highness gave birth to the 8-pound, 3-ounce princess at 8:34 a.m, almost a week after her rumoured due date.

As expected, the Royal Family is thrilled with the announcement. While chatting with a veteran at Windsor Castle recently, Prince Charles let slip that he was hoping his newest grandchild would be a little girl.

No word on how Prince George is taking the news that he has a little sister, but we bet he'll be a great big brother.
