London: Prince William has expressed his joy at becoming a
father after his wife Kate gave birth to a bouncing baby boy at a London

"We could not be happier," said the Duke of Cambridge in reference to the
new Prince of Cambridge, whose name is yet to be announced to the world.

31-year-old William is on a two-week paternity leave from his job as a
Royal Air Force pilot based in Anglesey in Wales to spend time with his

He spent the night at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington,
central London, where the 8lbs 6oz baby was born and is expected to pose
for photographs with mother and child on the steps of the hospital later

After what was labelled as the 'Great Kate Wait' is over, the media
speculation is now centred around not only the name of the third in line
to Britain's throne but also how he would be secured into a child seat for
his journey from the hospital to home expected to be an apartment in his
great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II's Buckingham Palace.

Child seats are now required by law in Britain, something that did not
exist back in 1982 when William was transported from the same hospital
after the customary photograph on the steps with mum Princess Diana and
dad Prince Charles.

The birth after more than 10 hours of labour brought relief not only to
the nation but also the rows of television news anchors camped on the
pavement outside the Lindo Wing for days.

Under the blistering heat of the hottest July day in London since 2006,
representatives of 150 television stations and some 300 photographers
broke into cheers as the official announcement was made yesterday evening.

Crowds remain outside the hospital as well as Buckingham Palace in
anticipation and the world's media are still waiting with cameras at the
ready to snap the first pictures of the royal heir.
