One of the most highly publicized pregnancies of the summer came to an end on July 22 when Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to a little prince.
In the weeks prior, news outlets speculated about the sex of the baby and when Middleton would give birth. Reporters camped outside of St. Mary’s Hospital in London in hopes of capturing the expectant mother entering or leaving the hospital.
The boy weighed in at 8 pounds 6 ounces. The following day, Middleton and her husband, Prince William, posed outside of the hospital with their newborn child as photographers shouted questions to the couple.
After much anticipation as to what the new prince’s name might be, the couple announced that they were naming the boy George Alexander Louis. The “royal baby,” as he has been colloquially called, is third in line to the throne.
The palace released the first official photos of the royal baby on Aug. 19. Middleton is expected to make her first official appearance on Sept. 12 at a charity dinner with her husband.
