The countdown to the second royal baby is over. And it’s a princess!

The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a girl Saturday at a London hospital, Kensington Palace tweeted. The baby princess weighed 8 pounds and 3 ounces, and the Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth, the palace confirmed.

“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well,” it said.

This is the second child for Prince William and Kate Middleton after their son, Prince George, who was born in July of 2013.

Predictably, a media frenzy ensued outside St. Mary’s Hospital as journalists congregated following the announcement that she had gone into labor. Some even wore pink or blue — depending on their preference for a boy or a girl.
