The newborn son of the Duke and Duchess and Cambridge is George Alexander Louis. He will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge, according to royal spokespeople.

Palace officials said the 2-day-old baby is third-in-line to the throne.

On Wednesday, the 8-pound 6-ounce newborn met his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II. His parents, Prince William and Kate, then brought him to the village of Buckleberry, near London, where Kate's parents live.

2:30 PM UPDATE

LONDON (AP) - Palace officials say Prince William's wife Kate has given birth to a baby boy. Officials said Monday the baby was born at 4:24 p.m. and weighs 8 pounds 6 ounces. 

The infant will become third in line for the British throne after Prince Charles and William.

 Kate checked into a private wing at St. Mary's Hospital in central London early Monday morning. William spent the long hours of labor at her bedside. This is the couple's first child.

ORIGINAL STORY

Palace officials say Prince William's wife, Kate, has been admitted to the hospital in the early stages of labor.
 
Royal officials say Kate arrived at St. Mary's Hospital in central London this morning with Prince William. Kate - also known as the Duchess of Cambridge - is expected to give birth in the private Lindo Wing of the hospital, where Princess Diana gave birth to William and his younger brother, Prince Harry.
 
A spokesman for the royal couple says they traveled from Kensington Palace, where they spent the weekend, by car and without a police escort just before 6 a.m.
 
The baby will be third in line for the British throne - behind Prince Charles and William - and is anticipated eventually to become king or queen.
 
The medical team will be led by royal gynecologist Dr. Marcus Setchell.
 
The child will be the first for William and Kate, who married in 2011 after a long courtship.
