Oh Boy Says Kate And William! A New Son!


20130722-163007.jpg
Wasn’t everyone predicting a girl? And didn’t Kate almost blurt out a spoiler for the Royal Baby when she was conversing with fans sometime ago?

Well, they fooled all of us because the baby is a bouncing baby boy, which means that the line to the throne is three deep now – Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince whomever!

Hail Britannia!

Here is the exciting story of the Royal Son’s arrival from CNN:

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 now third in line to the throne.

“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well,” read an official announcement that was placed outside Buckingham Palace.

“Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild. It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine ,and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy,” Prince Charles and wife Camilla said in a statement.”

So now we wait for the name! Any predictions?

And, I have to say, it is nice to hear good news for a change! How about you?

It might ruffle the feathers of Great Grandma the Queen, but hey, she’d get of it! LOL!!!!

  5. That was good news. I’m glad everyone is ok.

    The town crier was may favorite character of the day. SOO British. Probably home nursing a sore throat about now.

    My oldest daughter is just a few hours older than Prince William.

    I think the Queen has to approve the name so it will more likely be George than Bob.
