William and Kate to leave hospital with new baby boy
LONDON – Prince William and his wife, Kate, are to leave hospital with their newborn son on Tuesday evening and return home to Kensington Palace, the palace confirmed in a statement.
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge will be discharged this evening from St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington,” the palace said.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son will travel home to Kensington Palace.”
The statement added that William and Kate wanted to “reiterate their thanks to the hospital for the care and treatment they have all received”.
Their unnamed baby son, the new third in line to the British throne, was born at the central London hospital at 4:24 p.m. on Monday weighing a healthy 8 lbs 6 oz.
The statement from the palace came shortly after William’s father, Prince Charles, visited his new grandson, telling the press as he left: “You’ll see in a minute.”
In Costa Rica, the British ambassador in San José, Her Excellency Sharon Campbell, expressed her delight over yesterday’s news. “This is an exciting time for their Royal Highnesses. I am sure that Costa Ricans will join me and the staff of the British Embassy in San José in wishing the Duke and Duchess and their new arrival all the happiness in the world.”
