It’s a boy! Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to an eight-pound baby boy earlier today. Said boy is now third in line for the British throne. Oh, and remember, he is also presumptive future King of Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. BBC, the Guardian, and the Telegraph all have extensive coverage.
