News of the Royal Baby was everywhere, TV, radio, and social media. But William and Kate got some time alone with the newest addition to the royal family.
"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4.24 p.m."
That is the official announcement that the child third-in-line for the throne was born. The most surprising part of the message was the time--4:24. In an age of Twitter and Facebook, the royal family held back news of the birth for four hours.
Royal historian and researcher, Candace Metz-Longinette-Gahring says the need for boundaries with the press is very important for this prince because of the way his mother, Princess Diana, died. "The paparazzi chased her to her death because they had to have the latest pictures, the latest everything. As the woman lay dying they were taking pictures. I think that fueled his determination that I am going to have a private life", says Metz-Longinette-Gahring.
As for the name of the newest member of the royal family, that's still a secret.
