Kensington Palace announced the news, tweeting: 'Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs. Carole was also on hand to help with the school run as she was pictured collecting Prince George, four, from school.
It all started when Kate stepped outside the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital looking perfectly relaxed after giving birth to her third child yesterday.
Prince Charles, who will soon visit his new grandson, said today: 'We are both so pleased at the news.
Kensington Palace said the new prince's name will be announced in "due course". In Diana: Her True Story, Princess Diana revealed that her husband was disappointed when their second child was born after expecting it to be a girl, which he dismissed as a joke.
That means the Prince of Wales, his father Prince William, his brother Prince George and even his sister Princess Charlotte will all likely rule before he will.

Prince George guided his little sister into the Lindo Wing by putting his hand on her shoulder as they walked down the corridor. NBC's Kelly Cobiella was there in London when Prince William and his wife, Kate , introduced their son to the world.
According to People, the British designer is well-known for her stylish but very comfortable pieces of clothing.
The Duke of Cambridge also said that wife Kate and their new son were "in good form, luckily", adding that: "Sleeping's going reasonably well so far, so he's behaving himself which is good news". "Though that is barely completely different in that their first baby, Prince George, is prone to be the monarch, and this baby will seemingly not".
"Well it's amusing you should say that, it's a good name", the Prince replied. Before the rules were changed in 2012, male heirs took precedence.
Will and Kate also expressed their gratitude to hospital staff through the palace's Twitter account.
