After nearly 14 hours of labor, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed a baby boy, who weighed in at 8 lbs, 6 oz.
Sticking with the theatrical traditions of the palace, the birth of the little boy was announced with an official bulletin signed by the Duchess' medical team and placed on a wooden easel in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.
The easel used was the same one that was used to announce Prince William's birth in 1982. Shortly after, a digital announcement was sent out via Twitter:
"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4.24pm. The baby weighs 8 lbs 6 oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth."

Earlier this morning, Buckingham Palace released an official statement to announce that Princess Kate had entered St. Mary's Hospital:
"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted to St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington, London in the early stages of labour."
"The Duchess traveled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge."
UPDATE:The Prince of Cambridge made his official debut to the world just over 24 hours after he was born.
The proud new parents (both appropriately dressed in blue) greeted the press and showed off their little bundle of joy before leaving the hospital to head home.
