The baby is Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge's third child together, joining Prince George, four, and two-year-old Princess Charlotte in the royal family.

Ms Ardern has formally congratulated the royal couple. 

"I am sure that New Zealanders join with me in celebrating the birth of a new baby to such a close and loving family."

New Zealand's official gift to the couple will be a hand-crafted 100 per cent wool baby blanket featuring a manuka flower and seed pod design, along with a selection of New Zealand children's books.

"I also gave a personal gift of hand-made rompers with buzzy bee lining, sewn by a family member."
