The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. The second royal baby is here! 

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton have welcomed their second child, a baby girl whose official title is Highness Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. 

Princess Charlotte is the the first daughter for Prince William and Kate Middleton who gave birth to their first child, Prince George of Cambridge in July 2013. 

The princess was born on Saturday, May 2 at St. Mary’s Hospital in London and weighed in at a healthy 8 pounds 3 ounces . A day after Charlotte’s birth, the rest of the royal family came to visit their new bundle of joy. 

Sources say that Charlotte’s aunt Pippa Middleton, her uncle Prince Charles and his wife Camilla,  her grandmother Carol Middleton, and her grandfather Michael Middleton arrived to meet the new baby by car at Kensington Palace. 

Following the birth of Charlotte, Kensington Palace tweeted, “Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”

Princess Charlotte is fourth in line for the British throne but sources speculate that the Princess’ odds at becoming Queen are slim. It is also speculated that baby Charlotte will face a lot scrutiny over what she wears and how she presents herself in comparison to her brother. 

But for now, everyone is just excited that she’s finally here! 

Congratulations to Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton. We can’t wait to see how the royal babies grow up!
