LONDON — The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth Monday to a boy, a much-anticipated royal baby descended from kings and coal miners and third in line to the British throne.

The royal heir was born at 4:24 p.m. London time and weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces, the royal family announced. There was no immediate word on the boy’s name.

The official announcement said Prince William was present for the birth. It added: “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news.”

It said the duchess and her child “are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight.”
