Record-breaking baby #3

The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to the hospital early on Monday. She gave birth to her son in under five hours. The baby and his mother are reportedly in good health and were able to go home the same day.

Now, we know that baby #3 is the heaviest out of William and Kate's children, but how do they compare by overall stats?

The couple's first-born's delivery took over 10 hours. He weighed 8lbs. 6oz and was the first one to break the heaviest male throne descendant record.

In addition, Kate Middleton had to spend over 24 hours in the hospital due to George being her first child.

William and Kate's daughter, however, took less time to see the world. Her delivery only lasted a little over two hours, so she's the one holding the time record in her family.

Of course, the most important thing is that both Kate and her babies always went through safe and healthy deliveries.

Line for the British throne has shifted

As it was expected, with the birth of Prince William and Kate's third child, the line of succession for the throne is now slightly different. New Prince of Cambridge now holds the 5th spot to become the Head of the Commonwealth. The order now is as follows: Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince name-to-be-announced.
