The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a baby boy at the Lindo wing of St Mary's Hospital in London.
Some Royal watchers from our region have been camped out for 15 days hoping for a glimpse of the newest addition to the Royal family.
Marie Scott, from Newcastle, is among those in the crowd.
The world's media remains outside the hospital in London, the same place where the Cambridge's welcomed Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
The announcement of the birth was broadcast in traditional and contemporary ways. The Kensington Palace Twitter account verified the news on the @KensingtonRoyal page.
Just like with her first and second children, Kate is hoping for a natural birth and does not know whether she is having a boy or a girl.
Predicted names include Arthur, Albert, Frederick, James and Philip for a boy.
The baby prince or princess will be fifth in line to the throne, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's sixth great-grandchild and a younger brother or sister for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
