By Julie Hawkins. CREATED Jul 22, 2013

London - A birth announcement was delivered to Buckingham Palace. Prince William's wife Kate gave birth to a baby boy weighing 8lbs 6oz  at 4:24pm local time on Monday, July 22nd. 

Overnight, the Duchess of Cambridge went into labor.  She arrived at the hospital around 6:00 a.m. London time.  That's midnight Omaha time.

Media representatives from all over the world have been camped outside St. Mary's Hospital for days, waiting for the birth of the child who will be third in line for the British throne.

It could be some time before the baby's name is made public. When Prince William, the baby's father was born, a week passed before his name was announced.
