It's a son for Will and Kate!
FOX NEWS ^ | 07/22/2013

Posted on 07/22/2013 1:20:05 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

It’s a boy.

Prince William and Kate Middleton became parents of an 8 lb. 6 ounce baby boy late Monday afternoon.

Both mother and child were reported doing well and will remain in the hospital overnight.

Prince William was present for the birth at 4:24 p.m., according to a press release from the royal household. The release also said the name of the baby, the couple’s first, would be announced “in due course.”

The baby will be third in line to the throne after his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father. Crowds massed outside Buckingham Palace where a formal announcement of the baby’s birth was posted to cheers Monday night.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at St. Mary’s Hospital – where William and his brother Harry also were born – early Monday morning.

It was not immediately clear how long labor lasted or whether the child was delivered by natural birth or caesarian section.

Prince Charles issued a statement Monday night saying, "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.

Congrats to the royal family. I just hope they don’t give the kid a weird name.

A male heir for the next in line. Locks in the succession planning.

I genuinely believe the Queen's longevity is driven by a desire to not leave the throne in the hands of Prince Charles, the Capitulater. I think her sense of duty to country drives her to live on until maybe Charles decides to pass and leave the real work to William.

Then England would have a King that understands Islam a bit more, having dealt with them face to face while serving in a war against them.

Yes, I know the Monarchy is largely ceremonial, but it is a bully pulpit with the Brits and the UK in general. Imagine the damage Liberal Charles could do...

Even stupid ESPN had a watch on in this matter this morning. That Mike and Mike show had a big ta-do about it. Good grief. One, I ain’t English and don’t care. There were millions born today. This kid is another. He may or may not be king in the year 2525.

Ahhh, but what if they name him George? ( after all GZ and the Queen’s father have the same name)?

Do we expect Al Sharpton to organize a protest in England?

I’m going to say the same thing here that I said at FB. If you don’t care, then don’t comment. WTF is with all the joy-killers? Grumpy-assed people. It’s a nice story. And while it might not be a big deal to most of us here it’s a big deal to the Brits and it ought to be.

Any time a baby is born it’s a beautiful thing.

Instead of wasting 10 seconds posting how you don’t care how about you just scroll right over it? Does claiming not to care somehow make you a more contentious concerned citizens than the rest of us who actually think a break from the bullshit of our reality is kind of nice? Are we somehow going to forget about the crisis we’re in because a royal baby was born?

Cripes people. smh

I believe William IV was the oldest person ever to become king of the UK, about two months shy of his 65th birthday.

Prince Charles will pass that barrier in a few months.

George III had nine sons. Two became king, two died before George III died, two others died before their brothers the kings died - but three were still alive when Victoria was queen.

I'm still unsure why she became queen instead of her surviving uncles.

Who? What?

This falls lower in the scheme of things than the latest movie start to overdose or sports star who assaulted someone. Or, as my DI in bootcamp would have said about it’s importance: “lower than whale shit and that’s at the bottom of the ocean”.

Maybe the fact that as a people we supposedly set aside any idea of the importance of a monarchy 237 years ago.

Seriously though...

According to the monarchy's website it is not required for the baby to have a surname, because prior to 1917 members of the royal family did not have surnames as they adopted the name of the house or dynasty to which they belonged. If the duke and duchess decide to include a surname, there are three choices available: Mountbatten-Windsor, Wales, or Cambridge.  In 1917, King George V replaced his house name with Windsor, from Windsor Castle, while Prince Philip adopted the surname Mountbatten from his British maternal grandparents. The couple could also decide to keep it simple and leave it at "His/Her Royal Highness Prince/Princess of Cambridge."

I agree with you 100%. Anything to do with happiness and joy in any royal family automatically brings out the worst in a handful of FR posters.......bitter, anti-social, unhappy, name-calling, snarky folks who don't HAVE to be on these threads if the news from overseas and our comments enrage them so much.

We have a new little wee one, mom is fine, relatives are ecstatic, the Londoners are rejoicing in the streets. At last, happiness news is on the front pages instead of all the negative dreck we are pounded with every day.

All you Labourite socialists, start your own thread on the horrors of the English royal family, and leave us here to enjoy life and it's occasional little new-baby miracles.

And remember, in the midst of all your angst and negativity, we have our own royal families in this country....they just go by different names, like "dynasties." Go after them with your spite.....and leave the Windsors and us alone for a few days of having a jolly good time.

Cheerio, Leni

Wow your right I didn’t see that point. I feel the Queen is trying to stay long on the throne so by then Charlie will be old himself to take and won’t last long. Remember Diana stated that she would like to see William become King rather than Charles.

Yes your right, Charles coddles Islam yet William and especially Harry have seen up front how the religion of pieces are. So perhaps the future generation will be the ones to save the country.

“Damn, I had “Moon Unit” for 50 bucks.”

Even before reading your post, I thought it should be “Moon Unit II”, because the name has already been used elsewhere. We sure don’t want any confusion to reign.

"George III had nine sons. Two became king, two died before George III died, two others died before their brothers the kings died - but three were still alive when Victoria was queen. I'm still unsure why she became queen instead of her surviving uncles. "

Male preference primogeniture. Queen Victoria's Father, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, was the next in line to the throne after the future William IV, but he died in 1820, before either of his elder brothers. However, as he left surviving offspring, (i.e. Victoria) her place in the line of succession was superior to those of her father's younger brothers, regardless of the fact she was female.
