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.

What name do you think will Prince William and Kate choose for the baby prince? And which parent will he take after — his mom or his dad? Feel free to share your thoughts and well wishes via the comment box below!

NCAA Tournament Bracket: President Obama Picks Indiana As Winner

NCAA Tournament Bracket President Obama Picks Indiana As WinnerAs has become tradition, President Obama selected his bracket in front of ESPN’s cameras, accompanied by college basketball analyst Andy Katz.

‘Ohio State defeating Wisconsin’

In the Midwest region, the Louisville pick makes sense. However, President Obama has them beating Duke in the Elite Eight. For the most part, the President sticks with chalk in the Midwest. His only notable “upset” is Cincinnati defeating Creighton in the round of 64.

In the West, President Obama has Ohio State defeating Wisconsin to advance to the Final Four. The President isn’t so quick to dismiss Gonzaga, advancing them to the Sweet 16. But he is quick to dismiss Kansas State, already predicting the winner of the Boise State versus La Salle play-in game will beat the Wildcats in the round of 64. He also likes Belmont over Arizona, a popular upset pick and one I’m also projecting.


‘Indiana winning the national title’

In the South, the President is projecting Florida to beat Michigan to advance to the Final Four. President Obama has two upset picks in the round of 64 on the bottom portion of the bracket, rolling with Minnesota over UCLA—I’m with you, Mr. President—and Oklahoma over San Diego State.

Finally, we go to the East region, where the President has Indiana defeating Miami to reach the Final Four. It’s hard to argue with either selection.  However, you could make the argument that Miami deserved to be a No. 1 seed. In fact, the Hurricanes are the first ACC team ever to win the regular-season title and conference tournament and not earn a No. 1 seed.

In the Final Four, President Obama sees Indiana defeating Florida, Louisville defeating Ohio State and Indiana winning the national title.

Do you think President Obama’s prediction of the NCAA tournament will come true? Which team are you rooting for?
