The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a little girl. After a long wait, the Princess of Cambridge arrived in quite a hurry, less then three hours after her mother was admitted to St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London on Saturday morning.

The Princess of Cambridge was born at 8.34am on 2 May (meaning she shares a birthday with David Beckham!), weighing 8lb 3oz. Her name has not yet been announced (but remember her parents took their time with first child George, too).

Kensington Palace kept us updated on proceedings via Twitter, and even created a hashtag, #WelcomeToTheFamily, to mark the event.

The newest member of the British royal family will be fourth in line to the throne after her grandfather, father and 21-month-old brother George – who brought whoops of joy to royal fans camped outside the hospital when he gave a shy wave on his way to meet his new little sister at around 4pm.

Kate and William left the hospital at 6.15pm, less than 10 hours after the birth, after posing with their daughter on the steps of the hospital for photographers. Kate was wearing a bespoke silk shift dress with buttercup print by Jenny Packham. They did not comment but both wore broad smiles (the new princess slept throughout). The family will spend a short time at Kensington Palace in London before moving to Anmer Hall, their country home in Norfolk.

Welcome to the world, little princess!
