Britain's Duchess Kate gives birth
Britain's Duchess of Cambridge, the wife of Prince William, gave birth to a girl on Saturday, the couple's second child and a great grand-daughter to Queen Elizabeth, Reuters reported.
The royal family's newest member was born at 8:34 a.m., some 2-1/2 hours after Kate Middleton was admitted in the early stages of labor to St Mary's Hospital, West London, the couple's Kensington Palace residence said in a statement.
The couple emerged later the same day with the baby wrapped in a white woolen shawl and bonnet to pose for photographs on the steps of the hospital, a little over 12 hours after Kate arrived.
Kate cradled the sleeping princess in her arms as the couple waved to the cheering crowd, although they made no comment.
