These New Parents Came Out of the Hospital and Got Caught in the Middle of the Royal Baby Media Frenzy
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William welcomed their third child on Monday, and everyone in the press was eager to congratulate the happy couple. So eager that they also congratulated other happy couples.
Another, non-royal, pair exited the exclusive Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London on Monday morning, the same wing where the Duchess was giving birth, only to be greeted by dozens of photographers and journalists. Suffice to say, they were pretty shocked at the frenzy.
Of course, the new mom and dad kept their cool and looked just as natural in front as the cameras as Kate and William.
The dad even asked a member of the media to take a photo of himself with his happy family — and even went so far as to ask for a do-over, video captured by 5News showed. He also took photos of the huge crowd pointing their cameras back at him.
According to Kensington Palace, royal baby number three was born just after 11 a.m., local time. While we don't yet know the baby's name, we know that he and mom are doing well.
Congratulations to all the happy parents, both royal and non-royal.
