The patron saint, St. George, was officially named the protector of the royal family and of the country during the Middle Ages.

St. George’s Day is already an important day for the royal family, and now this day will be marked as the birthday of royal baby number three.

After much speculation about what the sex of the baby would be, it was confirmed that Kate had given birth to a happy and healthy baby boy, weighing 8 pounds 7 ounces.

The new prince will be fifth in line to the throne. He is now Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh’s sixth great-grandchild.
