The official proclamation of the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby girl has been displayed outside Buckingham Palace.

The plaque confirmed the time of the birth and has been signed by the doctors looking after the Duchess, Kate Middleton.

It read: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8.34am today.

"Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well."

The first confirmation of the happy news was made via Kensington Palace's official Twitter account.

The announcement read: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8.34am. The baby weighs 8lbs 3oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth.
