“The Office of the Marshal of the Realm is delighted to announced that H.R.H Princess Madeleine gave birth to a daughter on February 20, 2014 at 10.41pm local time New York,” a statement read.

“Both mother and child are in good health.”

The birth will be celebrated across Sweden with a 21-gun salute in Stockhom, Boden, Harnosand, and various other locations in the country.

Princess Madeleine and American-banker Chris announced their engagement in October 2012, and the couple married in a stunning ceremony in June 2013.

Royalty from around the world attended including The Earl and Countess of Wessex who represented Britain, Denmark’s Prince Frederik and Princess Mary, and Prince Pavlos and Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece.

The new parents currently reside in New York where Chris continues his private job, while the princess carries out royal duties on behalf of Sweden and her mother Queen Silvia’s charity World Childhood Foundation.
