Prince George has a little sister!
Saturday morning at 8:34 am (just after midnight California time), Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to a healthy baby girl, according to the royal press release, which was also posted to Twitter. This is the second child for William and Kate, the second grandchild for Prince Charles, and the fifth great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth II (but the second royal one). The little Princess is now fourth in the line of succession, behind her grandpa Prince Charles, her dad Prince William, and her big brother Prince George.
Her names have not been announced, but we knew George’s names within a day or so. (I’m kind of hoping “Charlotte” shows up somewhere in there, as that is my mother’s name.)
In accordance with royal tradition, a formal announcement was placed on an easel in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace (and then a picture was taken and posted on instagram.)
Congratulations to William, Kate, and George!
