We still do not know his name, but we do know that he has weighed 3.8 kilos. He also replaces a post in the line of succession to his uncle, Prince Harry.
The third son of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and Prince William is already here. The boy, who has weighed 3.8 kilos and whose name will be announced in the next few days, was born in St Mary’s Hospital in London. Seven hours later, she left the hospital in the arms of her mother, demonstrating that this woman in each delivery is overcome. His birth causes Prince Harry to descend a step in the line of succession.
The third son of Prince William of England and his wife Kate Middleton, a man born Monday, is the fifth in the line of succession to the throne occupied by his great-grandmother Elizabeth II. “Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to her son, who weighs three and a half kilos, at 11:01 a.m. The Duke of Cambridge was present during the birth, ” the British House statement said.
And it was shown that Kate is a superwoman because a few hours after giving birth was already on the street. Something that already happened in the two previous births, which were also quite fast: Kate had Jorge less than 11 hours after arriving at the hospital (July 22, 2013), while Carlota was born just two hours and 34 minutes after that the duchess entered on May 2 in 2015.
Bets by name
“The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Henry and the members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news,” the statement continued, saying nothing of the name, since it is something that will be known in the next hours. The British, very fond of betting, already make guesses about the possible name. Why do you bet? Albert and Arthur are tied as the most popular names for a child
Everything is happiness in the British royal house. Also very soon we will be at a wedding. Meghan Markle, the American actress will marry next May 19 with Prince Enrique, the youngest of Carlos’ two children and the late Diana de Gales.
The fifth in succession
The third son of Prince William and Kate Middleton is fifth in the succession to the throne of the United Kingdom, behind his grandfather Charles of England, Prince of Wales; his father, Duke of Cambridge; his brother, Prince Jorge (four years), and his sister, Princess Carlota (two years). Thanks to changes introduced in 2013 in the laws governing the succession, the sex of the baby do not affect the order of succession. Not as it happens in Spain, where there are still symptoms of machismo in this type of law.
