The big announcement of the royal baby.
LONDON—On Monday, July 22 parents Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed a baby boy at 4:24 p.m. weighing in at 8 lbs. and 6 oz.


For the past three weeks, the countdown to Kate's due date had long gone. People were bidding on the gender and even baby names too. The news was posted on an easel board outside of Buckingham Palace.


A baby boy also marks a change in the royal line to the crown with Prince Charles in first place, Prince William in second place, the baby boy in third place, and then Prince Harry in fourth place.  The new family will spend their first night together at St. Mary's Hospital.


The world celebrated the news by lighting up in blue colors from Trafalgar Square fountain to New Zealand's Sky Tower. No news yet of the chosen name for The Royal Highness Prince of Cambridge.
