royal1After much anticipation, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, welcomed their second child together — a daughter! — in Paddington, London on Saturday, May 2.

The world has been on pins and needles just waiting for news, supporters have literally been camped on the hospital grounds for weeks waiting!  Let’s break down how the events went down!  Yes, their is literally almost a minute by minute breakdown of Kate’s uterus! Timeline is courtesy!

11:00 am: Kensington Palace announced the birth through Twitter first, just a few hours after Middleton went into labor and was admitted to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital at around 6:00 a.m. local time. Not long before the announcement, a palace spokesperson told Us her labor was “progressing normallyroyal3


11:20 a.m. GMT: Unofficial town crier Tony Appletone carried on the ye olde tradition of announcing the birth of a royal baby with fanfare and bells. “I’ve been doing this for 25 years,” he told Us. 

12:15 p.m. GMT: Prior to the birth, royal baby watchers had been placing bets for weeks on what name the second-time parents might choose. The top name for a girl, as revealed by the UK’s Coral betting service, is Alice, with a 5 to 4 ratio.

12:30 p.m. GMT: A source tells Us Weekly the new parents are “happy” and “relaxed.” They’re also incredibly loved, as evidenced by the outpouring of love and well wishes sent their way after the baby’s birth.

The proclamation included several details about her birth, including the names of the hospital staffers involved in bringing her into the world. Her own name, however, is still unknown.

12:50 p.m. GMT: No matter her name, the new little princess is now fourth in line to the British throne, behind Prince Charles, Prince William, and her brother, Prince George.

1:30 p.m. GMT: Middleton’s hairstylist, Amanda Cook Tucker, arrived on the scene to tend to the new mom’s famously polished tresses, sparking chatter that the royal family might leave the hospital later this afternoon.

Up next, the royals will introduce their bundle of joy to the world outside St. Mary’s Hospital, as they did with Prince George after his birth. They will then leave the hospital (hopefully Prince William won’t have a struggle with the baby car seat this time!) and return to Kensington Palace for a couple of days

I will be on the lookout for first pictures and her name!
