Britain's Duchess of Cambridge Kate gave birth to a baby boy on Monday afternoon. The baby, weighing eight pounds and six ounces, was born at 16:24, according to sources with the Kensington Palace. He is now the third in line to the British throne.

Already more than a week past her due date, Kate was taken through a side entrance of the St. Mary's Hospital at around 06:00.

Reporters and royal family fans gathered outside the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London, awaiting news of the birth of the couple's first child.

"Every day I show up once a day normally for ten days now, two weeks maybe," said Jacque Klopp, a reporter said.

A 70-year-old man who came from Cambridgeshire waited there for two weeks.

"Hopefully, everybody's gonna be okay. All I really want is a healthy baby, healthy mother and a happy dad," said Tarry Hutt, a Cambridge resident
"I have been here seven days. No one knows when the baby's gonna be born. So you have to be early. You have to take the pain. I slept on the bench. I've been here seven day and I'm excited," said John Loughray, a London resident.

Shops have prepared all kinds of special royal baby clothes and souvenirs, which has been said will bring at least 2.45 billion British pounds to retailers.
