The World Welcomes the New Prince of Cambridge

Today, Kensington Palace announced the birth of the new Prince of Cambridge, the son of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Traditionally the announcements are made via an easel placed outside Buckingham Palace, and crowds have gathered for weeks in anticipation of its placement.

For more photos and videos from the crowds at the announcement, visit the Buckingham Palace, Buckingham Palace Gate and St. Mary’s Hospital location pages.
