Kate delivered at St Mary's Paddington, which is also the hospital where William and his brother Harry were born. She was assisted by two gynecologists, Marcus Setchell and Alan Farthing.

The official announcement of the birth was signed by the medical staff and followed by 41 gun shots echo through London.

There was no immediate name for the royal baby. The world wasn't expecting an immediate name. William was only after a week so named Charles after a month. The bookmakers had pointers on Alexandra and George. A day later, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge named their son George Alexander Louis. The last British King to named George was George VI - Queen Elizabeth's father and the newly named Prince George's great great grandfather.The Queen's second name is Alexandra - the female equivalent.
