It's perhaps not the nicest adjective to assign to a new baby: a "porker," said Sky News presenter Kay Burley of Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child, who the Mirror reports is thought to be the heaviest "future king" in more than 100 years. The child, the fifth in line to the throne, weighed in at 8 pounds, 7 ounces, making him an ounce heavier than Prince George and 4 ounces heavier than Princess Charlotte. But another baby British royal takes the heaviest crown, even if she won't one day wear it: Savannah Phillips, born in 2010 to the Queen's grandson, Peter Phillips, weighed an ounce more.
  • The Mirror reports Kensington Palace will release the child's name in "due course," while noting there's usually some lag time in the announcement of names. George and Charlotte's were revealed after two days.
