As I am sure you are all well aware – It’s a Prince! Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the arrival of their son.
Before returning home the Duke and Duchess and the unnamed prince stepped outside the Lindo Wing and not only posed for pictures but answered a few questions as well.
It was difficult to get a good look at the new prince, who was wrapped in a blanket, however, I did notice his fingers moving around his face. He was described by Prince William as being “quite heavy” and having “a good pair of lungs on him.”
The proud parents, William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge looked truly happy as they spoke with the press and posed for pictures. As always, Catherine looked beautiful. It’s hard to believe that she had a baby just over twenty four hours ago.
The family returned to the Lindo Wing to secure the newborn prince in a car seat. Just like here in Canada, babies are required to leave the hospital secured in a car seat. Of course, if you are the future King of England, you may first leave the hospital in the arms of your mother to greet the world who has been anxiously awaiting your arrival.
Does the arrival of the new royal baby and the first glimpse mean the end of the Royal Baby Watch and Royal Baby Fever? Don’t count on it. People around the world are anxiously waiting to find out the new prince’s name, and you can be certain that people are eager for more photographs and/or video footage of the family. However, I think this will be the end of the Royal Baby Watch for this blogger. I’m sure Tom will be thrilled. This afternoon he retreated to the basement while I watched live coverage from outside of the hospital and texted my grandmother!
As always, thank you for reading and please check back soon for my next blog post!
