When asked about his son as he arrived for the service, William said the family were "in good form, luckily".

Now, Prince George is worth around $3.6 billion to the British economy, and Princess Charlotte is worth $5 billion, according to the company.

The name of the new baby will be announced in a few days time.

Prime Minister Theresa May led the messages of support saying: "My warmest congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their baby boy". Prince William replied with a smile: "Jerry's a strong name".

Harry and Meghan were pictured at an Anzac Day dawn service at Wellington Arch in central London this morning in the ceremony organised by the New Zealand and Australian High Commissions.

She resumed royal duties just five weeks after giving birth to Prince George, but took four months to appear in public just after the birth of second child, Princess Charlotte. "It is a great joy to have another grandchild, the only trouble is I don't know how I am going to keep up with them", Charles joked in the statement.
