Celebrations as baby prince begins royal career
LONDON - Prince William, Kate and their baby boy are spending their first day as a family inside St. Mary's Hospital in London.
Kensington Palace says "mother, son and father are all doing well this morning" and are expected to remain in the hospital until at least this evening, if not tomorrow morning. In a statement, William thanked hospital staff for their "tremendous care."
The lad's name - and his likeness - remain a royal mystery. And as the infant child begins a long journey expected to see him someday become a king, Brits - and indeed people from around the world - joined the royal family in celebration.
"It's a Boy!" was splashed across many front pages, while Britain's top-selling The Sun newspaper temporarily changed its name to "The Son" in honor of the tiny monarch-in-waiting.
A gun salute to mark the child's birth is expected later Tuesday.
