The Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Say Thank You

After the arrival of the Prince of Cambridge yesterday afternoon at St Mary's Hospital London (it's boy, it's a boy!) Kate Middleton and Prince William have offered their huge thanks to the hospital and the teams of staff who looked after them. The official statement from Kate and Wills reads as follows:

"We would like to thank the staff at the Lindo Wing and the whole hospital for the tremendous care the three of us have received," they said. "We know it has been a very busy period for the hospital and we would like to thank everyone - staff, patients and visitors - for their understanding during this time."

The well-wishing has literally come from across the globe following the birth, now the wait is on for the announcement of the royal baby name (please be Frances) AND for a glimpse of our fave royal couple babe in arms. The future King of England might just be the most famous baby ever. Also, this just in: Kate's hairdresser is at the hospital ahead of their departure. Smart girl.
