What the newest royal baby means for succession to the British throne

ICYMI: Kate's in labour!

Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a baby boy, Kensington Palace has confirmed.

Kate Middleton was admitted to the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, in central London, on Monday morning (April, 23), after showing signs of the "early stages of labour," the statement read.

Prince William and Kate's second son marks a few changes with regard to the royal succession to the throne.

The baby, whose title will be HRH Prince such-and-such, is now the fifth-in-line to the crown, shafting his uncle, Prince Harry to sixth (ahead of his wedding to Meghan Markle), and everyone else after him down a spot too.

But this little bub -- who was delivered at 11:01 am -- is also history making because, being a boy, something that has never been done before in royal British tradition will take place.

As pointed out by the UK Telegraph prior to the birth:

Also, in another strange twist, the new family memeber means that Prince Andrew gains more autonomy over his love life. Andrew, who will be relegated to seventh-in-line of succession, will no longer have to ask his mother, The Queen's permission to marry again because only the six people closest to the throne have to ask the monarch's approval to marry.

So, following the new bub's arrival, here's what the succession to the royal throne looks like in pictures...
