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.

Cops Cuff 7-Year-Old Over $5

Cops Cuff 7-Year-Old Over $5The family of a 7-year-old New York boy is suing police and the city for $250 million, saying cops handcuffed and interrogated the boy for ten hours after a scuffle over lunch money at school.

‘Assault and robbery’

Wilson Reyes, a student at Public School 114 in the Bronx reportedly got into a fight with a fellow student in December after he was accused of taking $5 of lunch money that had fallen on the ground in front of him. Responding to a complaint of assault and robbery, the police were called and took the boy to the local police precinct where officers allegedly handcuffed and interrogated him for ten hours, according to the lawsuit.

“Imagine how I felt seeing my son in handcuffs,” Wilson’s mother, Frances Mendez, told the New York Post. “It was horrible. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” she said.


‘Psychological abuse’

The claim, filed by family attorney Jack Yankowitz, accuses the NYPD, among other things, of false imprisonment, physical, verbal, emotional and psychological abuse, and deprivation of Reyes’ constitutional rights.

Robbery charges against the boy were later dropped, and the NYPD, though it disputes the accusations in the suit, is investigating the incident.
