The baby son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge instantly captured the hearts of the crowd of royal watchers gathered outside St. Mary’s hospital for his world debut.
Terry Hutt, who calls himself a ‘Royal Superfan’, told reporters: “Wonderful! To see a new born baby come out of there, and see the parents, it was great. It was a sight for sore eyes.”
Ragini Patel showed off the video footage she had been able to record on her phone, saying: “I’m so glad I came here today. Oh my god the footage I’ve got! I will treasure it for life, definitely!”
The Duke and Duchess, William and Catherine, were wearing matching baby blue when they emerged from the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s.
John Loughrey, who had been camped out by the hospital for eight days, could barely contain his joy for the couple: “I’ve never seem them two so happy in my life. It was explosive!”
“Kate was looking radiant for someone who’d just had a baby just a few hours ago, like a day. And they both looked very happy,” said Murdy McKenna, who journeyed from London from Glasgow to see the royal baby.
