Born in London, England, on July 22, 2013, Prince George is the first child of Kate Middleton and Prince William of Wales. He is third in line to British throne after his father and grandfather, Prince Charles.
Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, third in line to British throne, was born on July 22, 2013, at St. Mary's Hospital in London, England. Prince George is the first child of Prince William of Wales and Duchess Catherine of Cambridge, also known as Kate Middleton. The prince's birth was highly anticipated around the world and became a global news event, with reporters camped outside the hospital to cover his arrival. He was born weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces, in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital—the same hospital where his father, Prince William, and uncle, Prince Harry, were born to Princess Diana and Prince Charles.
Following royal tradition, Prince George's official birth announcement was placed on an easel outside of Buckingham Palace. It read: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4.24 p.m. today. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well." Prior to the official announcement, however, Prince William and Kate Middleton broke with tradition and introduced their baby to the world, greeting a larger crowd of citizens and members of the press outside of the hospital. "It's very emotional," the Duchess told reporters. "It's a special time. I think any parent will know what this feeling feels like."
Prince George is third in line to throne after his father, Prince William, and grandfather, Prince Charles. His birth marks the first time since the reign of Queen Victoria that three generations of direct heirs are alive at the same time.
Prince George was christened at St. James's Palace in October 2013—his first public appearance in three months. It was also announced during this time that Baby George would have seven godparents, including Zara Tindall, cousin of Prince William and daughter of Princess Anne; Oliver Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson and William van Cutsem, friends of William and Kate; Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, a former private secretary of the royal couple; Julia Samuel, a longtime friend of the royal family; and Earl Grosvenor, son of the Duke of Westminster.
