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.

William, Kate And Harry Welcome Olympic Torch At Buckingham Palace

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – along with Prince Harry – officially greeted the Olympic torch on Thursday outside Buckingham Palace as large crowds gathered in London to watch the relay through the city.

The flame was was met by Prime Minister David Cameron earlier on Downing Street before it ended up in Hyde Park, where 60,000 people gathered to watch as the final torchbearer lit a cauldron, BBC News reports.

Earlier in the day, the royals flaunted their sporting skills – and spent some quality time with kids – at the launch of a sports-related charity. William and Kate, both 30, and Harry, 27, visited Bacon’s College to launch the Coach Core program, a partnership between their foundation and the Greenhouse charity that will help train the country’s future youth-sports coaches.

They didn’t just watch the action, either. On the eve of the London Olympics, William kicked a soccer ball around, Harry shot hoops in the gym and Kate tried her hand at table tennis. For her ping-pong game, Kate played against Hiba Feredj, 13, the current English schools under-13 champion. Kate won two points out of 10 – raising her hands and cheering when she hit a winner.

Then Kate – in a gray dress from the store Hobbs – kicked off her wedges and stepped onto a blue gym mat to start a judo match. With a chopping motion, she proclaimed, “Hajimi,” the Japanese word that traditionally kicks off the bouts. Before her, 14-year-olds Abdurrahman Chaatouf and Aaron Mahoney-Jones bowed and showed her three the classic throws. Afterwards, Mahoney-Jones said of the royal visit: “It inspires me to know someone’s behind me and behind us at Greenhouse.”
