LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday congratulated Prince William and his wife Kate on the birth of a boy.

Kensington Palace said the baby was born at 1001 GMT and weighs 8 lbs 7oz (3.8 kg). William was present for the birth at St Mary’s Hospital in west London where their other two children, George and Charlotte, were also born, it added.

“My warmest congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their baby boy,” May said. “I wish them great happiness for the future.”
