First look at Britain’s royal baby

Today the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William of Great Britain gave the first debut of their first child. Hundreds of people gathered in front of the palace gates where the birth was announced at just before 4:30 p.m. The third heir to the throne is described as being healthy and up to this point unnamed.

The celebration in Great Britain and across the globe will continue throughout the week. (Source)
