The Royal Prince

To huge cheers from well-wishers, Prince William and his wife, Kate, gave the world its much-anticipated first glimpse of their newborn baby boy on Tuesday, July 23, 2013. Hundreds came to witness history, ending weeks of feverish anticipation about the baby’s arrival. The couple adhered to tradition by giving the public its first sight of the baby on the steps of the hospital as they left – just as William’s father Prince Charles and late mother, Princess Diana, did with him.
