Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Present Baby Prince To The World

Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Present Baby Prince To The WorldThe Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have emerged from St Mary’s Hospital in west London with their new baby son. Walking out to cheers from staff and well-wishers, Kate cradled her son and said it was “a special time”. Prince William said they were “still working on a name”.

‘Very emotional’

A small crowd had gathered outside the palace to greet them. Speaking to reporters outside the hospital earlier, the couple both said the experience was “very emotional”. Kate handed their baby, who was wrapped in a white shawl, over to her husband and the couple walked forward to speak to reporters. They also revealed William had done the first nappy change.

Prince William was at the hospital for the birth at 16:24 BST on Monday, and stayed with his wife and son, who weighed 8lb 6oz (3.8kg), overnight.


‘Third in line to the throne’

Meanwhile, the birth of the third in line to the throne was marked by gun salutes at Green Park and the Tower of London and the ringing of bells at Westminster Abbey. And at Buckingham Palace, royal watchers and tourists queued in the rain to catch a glimpse of the bulletin – displayed on an easel – announcing the arrival of the royal baby.

The birth of the prince means the monarchy has three generations of heirs to the throne for the first time since 1894.

Duchess Of Cambridge Gives Birth To Royal Baby Boy!

Duchess Of Cambridge Gives Birth To Royal Baby BoyWith fanfare fit for a prince, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and husband Prince William welcomed their first child Monday. The baby boy was born at 4:24 p.m., weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces. A name has not yet been announced for the child, who is third in line to the throne.

‘Could not be happier’

People from all over the world had gathered outside Buckingham Palace to await news of the birth. At least one group of well-wishers brought flowers, champagne and a card for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The fountains at Trafalgar Square were turned blue.

The new parents spent some time with their baby before calling family members — starting with Queen Elizabeth II — to announce the birth, a Kensington Palace source told CNN royal correspondent Max Foster. Prince William remained at Catherine’s side throughout the labor and the baby was born vaginally, not via a C-section, the source said.

“We could not be happier,” said Prince William, according to the Kensington Palace source.


‘Third in line’

Earlier Monday, the duchess and Prince William traveled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital. The hospital, next to Paddington Station in London, is where William and his brother Prince Harry were born. The baby’s name may be announced when the family leaves the hospital, CNN’s Foster reported.

The child’s title will be His Royal Highness Prince (the baby’s name) of Cambridge. The baby is third in line for the throne now occupied by the queen. Her son, Charles, will succeed her, followed by his son, William.
