A town crier announced the arrival of the baby outside the hospital and a notice giving details about the baby was transported by car to Buckingham Palace.

The notice was placed in an easel in the palace's forecourt, much like when Prince William was born on June 21 1982.
Prince Charles said he was "enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time", adding that it was "an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine".
He added: "Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone's life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months, so I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future."
While Prime Minister David Cameron spoke outside 10 Downing Street to say the birth of the royal baby was 'an important moment in the life of our nation.'
The Duke of Cambridge issued a short statement, saying: "We could not be happier."

Marcus Setchell, 69, who was the Queen’s gynaecologist for two decades, was in charge.
He helped save the lives of the Countess of Wessex and her eldest child Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor in 2003.
Sophie was rushed to hospital suffering severe internal pains when she was eight months pregnant.
She was dangerously ill from blood loss and doctors performed an emergency Caesarean.
Lady Louise – the first grandchild of the Queen to be born on the NHS –weighed just 4lb 9oz.
Two years earlier the Countess, 48, was airlifted to hospital after suffering a life-threatening ectopic pregnancy.

“She was dangerously ill from blood loss and doctors performed an emergency Caesarean.”
Mr Setchell assisted with the 66-year-old Duchess of Cornwall’s hysterectomy at King Edward VII’s Hospital in 2007 and delivered Sophie’s son James – Viscount Severn – the same year.
He looked after Kate when she was taken to hospital with severe morning sickness in the early stages of her pregnancy.
Mr Setchell was assisted by the Queen’s current gynaecologist, Alan Farthing, 50, the former fiance of murdered TV presenter Jill Dando.
He was appointed to the royal post in September 2008.
Kate’s baby is his first high-profile royal birth.

New boy to be caring like Princess Diana

THE future of Princess Kate’s little boy is already written in the stars, with the tot born a sensitive Cancer.

The baby was born under the sign of the crab, meaning he will be in touch with his emotions and love a cuddle from mum and dad.
He is the same star sign as dad William, 31, and his late gran Princess Diana, whose down-to-earth, caring characters have seen them champion a string of good causes.
Carrying on such traits will make him a perfect candidate for the demanding role of Prince, understanding the challenges of ordinary people across Britain and the globe.
The boy has also picked an unusual time to come into the world, on the cusp of two star signs and during a Full Moon.
If he had been born after 4.57pm yesterday, when the signs changed, he would have been a trailblazing Leo.
But rather than a fiery, decisive and limelight-loving Leo, experts reckon he will be a sensible lad who can show great sympathy and compassion for others.

“The boy has also picked an unusual time to come into the world, on the cusp of two star signs and during a Full Moon.”
Daily Star astrologer Lori Reid said: “Cancer is all about home and nurturing. They are great little collectors and very close to their mums. They are squidgy on the inside, sensitive and emotional but they have a hard, strong shell.” And she said a Full Moon baby almost certainly meant change.
She added: “A Full Moon baby brings a circle to a close. They like seeing through change.”
If the boy had been born just 33 minutes later, he would have been a Leo, added Lori.
But being so close to the sign of Leo he will almost certainly carry some traits of that sign too.
Lori added: “Being born so close to Leo, this child will transform British life and follow through with a lot of changes.”
Famous people with the Cancer sign include singer Cheryl Cole, 30, Pussycat Dolls babe Nicole Scherzinger, 35, and US rapper 50 Cent 38.

Proud Prince William immediately called the Queen, his father Prince Charles, and his brother Harry and made sure Kate’s family was told the happy news.
After more than a week of waiting, Kate was admitted to the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s, Paddington, west London, at 5.30am, already in labour.
Just under 11 hours later the baby, who is third in line to the throne after Charles and William, arrived at 4.24pm.
Palace sources said the couple chose to delay the public announcement of the birth until 8.30pm to allow them to spend “quality time” together.
