After 5 hours of labour, Duchess gave birth to a healthy baby boy at 11:01 AM. Prince William was present at the time of their baby’s birth. Kensington Palace announced that mother and baby are doing well. The weight of the baby was 8lbs 7oz and the new Prince was bigger than his elder siblings at the time of birth.

As per the royal tradition, a framed notice of the birth was put on display on a ceremonial easel on the forecourt at the Buckingham Palace. Notices have been posted on the occasion of a Royal birth for at least as long as Buckingham Palace has been the Sovereign’s official residence (from 1837).

The notice will be on display for approximately 24 hours. When it is taken down, it is sent to the Privy Council Office so that the details of the birth may be recorded in the Privy Council records.

To mark the birth of the new Prince flags have been raised at both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.

At 4 PM a smiling Prince William came out of the Lindo Wing and left for Kensington Palace saying “back in a minute”.

The new baby is a sixth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II and fifth in line to the throne after his grandfather Prince Charles, his father Prince William and his elder siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

After introducing their third baby to the world, the happy couple went back inside to came out in a few minutes to leave for their home hand in hand.

Upon their departure Kensington Palace said, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son will travel home to Kensington Palace. Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank all staff at the hospital for the care and treatment they have received. They would also like to thank everyone for their warm wishes.”

While leaving William jokingly said ” thrice the worry now” and about the name, he said, “you’ll find out soon enough”. I am believing that Duke and Duchess would like to pay tribute to Duke’s Grandfather Prince Philip by giving new Cambridge Prince his name. This is my guess for the baby name is “Arthur Philip James”. What is yours?

Duchess made hat-trick for her Lindo Wing dress. Just like at the birth of Prince George and Princess Charlotte this time too Kate chose her trusted designer Jenny Packham. This time it was a beautiful red number with peter pan collar in lace.

The dress looked similar to the dress worn by Catherine’s late Mother-in-law Diana Princess of Wales while leaving Lindo Wing after the birth of Prince Harry in 1984.

I am expecting the announcement of the name for a new baby in a day or two after Duchess and family is settled down with a new baby in her home. The baby will be styled as His Royal Highness Prince <Name> of Cambridge. I do hope its Arthur Philip. Stay tuned till then.

The Royal Foundation organised the symposium on Catherine’s behalf, inviting leading academics and charities that are championing the importance of early intervention to make children healthier and more resilient later in life, thus avoid serious problems which often emerge only in adolescence or in adult years.

Ahead of the engagement Kensington Palace said: “Stemming originally from her interests in issues such as addiction and the effects of family breakdown, and her visits to charities and support organisations, Her Royal Highness has been struck time and time again by how so many of society’s greatest social and health challenges often stem from problems that start to manifest themselves in the earliest years of life.

The aim of the Royal Foundation is to establish a steering group to explore how best to support academics, practitioners and charities. The steering group will report back to the Duchess later this year and it is expected that the Royal Foundation’s strategy for collaborative action on these issues will be announced in late autumn 2018 / early 2019.

During his speech, Professor Neil Humphrey spoke about Mentally Healthy Schools said, “50% of lifetime mental health issues begin before the age of 14 and that children from deprived areas are 4.5 times more likely to develop a mental health issue“.

Mentally Healthy Schools were officially opened by Duchess in January this year during a visit to Roe Green School. Mentally Healthy Schools’ is free and easy to use the website for schools, drawing together reliable and practical resources to improve awareness, knowledge and confidence in promoting and supporting pupils’ mental health.

Speaking at the Symposium today, Duchess discussed her ambition to support efforts to give every child the best possible start in life. Catherine announced her plans to create a long-term collaboration between experts and organizations to raise awareness of perinatal, maternal and infant mental health, as well as the need to support parents, families and teachers. The Duchess said “I really feel so passionately about the importance of early intervention… providing children in their earliest years with social and emotional security builds strong foundations which last a lifetime“.

Duchess speech today was exemplary as it showed the research Catherine has done on the topic and how passionate she is about mental health issues.
