Once again, the nation (and FreshAcademy) was kept in suspense and The Duchess of Cambridge became centre of attention for the second time!
We’ve been waiting for the birth of the Royal baby for a good fortnight now, speculation was rife that the new heir or heiress to the throne (who will be the 43rd monarch since William the Conqueror) was due well over a week ago but there was no show.Finally, it was announced at 7.30am yesterday morning from Kensington Palace that Princess Kate had gone into labour and had been taken earlier to the prestigious Lindo Wing in Paddington to give birth.
We waited…and waited…and waited. The news stream was the same, BBC News had in their own words “No News”, Sky News again was on repeat. Our Fresh Academy Studio was a hive of excitement with bets weighing heavily on a future Queen being born.
We left the Studio with no sign of a new Prince or Princess and returned to our own homes – where we sat in the humid evening watching, and waiting…..
Finally, at around 8.30pm we had the announcement we were all waiting for!Our Prince and Princess had produced a son and heir to the throne – weighing in at a whopping 8lb 6oz and born at 4.24pm!A very exciting moment for the nation.The announcement was made four hours later than the birth itself, allowing Wills and Kate some precious time with the baby with no one else knowing their little Prince had arrived.
We can’t wait to catch a glimpse of the new Royal heir, sometime today when William and Kate leave St Mary’s – pictures on the steps hopefully!
Here are some interesting Royal baby facts you may or may not know!
