I honestly don't think that just because someone else in the family has the same name that it will stop them from naming the baby that said name. Some people who thought that it was a girl even wanted it to be called Elizabeth, when there already was a Elizabeth. They should name it what they want it to be named regardless if a person in the family already has the same name.

I was hoping we'd get a chance to see Prince William tonight, but he won't be making an appearance.

Prince William is not expected to speak tonight to the media about the birth of his son. He's expected to spend the night at the hospital.

Did we get some official ones of the Queen Mum, with her daughter, grandchild and great-grandchild? Slightly different as she was consort and not queen in her own right, but still four generations.

    Right, sorry, been filing copy for tomorrow's paper. Marcus Setchell, who led medic team, says: "Wonderful baby, beautiful baby."

    Unusually, Prince William will be spending the night in hospital with his wife and their new baby, no words from him until tomorrow

What is the earliest time that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge might likely leave the hospital tomorrow? I would love to set my alarm clock so I can watch it live. Is there anything else to see/hear this evening?

Different generations are usually a different matter. Sharing a name with your great-grandmother who is in her late eighties, is different then your dad's cousin who is only five years older than you IMO.

For William's baptism, there was a photo op with the Queen Mother, the Queen, Diana and William. That's all I know.

Aides say William and Kate delayed announcing the birth for 4hrs 5 mins to give themselves time to enjoy private time with the baby.

A new prince

So after all the speed of changing the legislation and the issuing of new LPs last January and none of it was necessary for this child.

Baby is a sun sign Cancer, but Sun is conjunct Leo (1 degree, I think). Rising sign is Scorpio, with Mercury and Mars also in Cancer (so a very watery baby, if astrology is to be consulted).

Moon is in Capricorn, so that should anchor him a little bit.

Venus is in Virgo, which will likely make him a picky prince when it comes to courtship... (although the customary shyness and self-esteem issues of people with Venus in Virgo may not manifest, in a prince - it'll be interesting to watch him grow up).

God bless the family for what it has to endure in terms of public life.

It shouldn't be based on a baby, the necessity. Gender equality should have been changed long ago. In Belgium it happened a decade before Philippe had children.

A Prince!! A lovely little boy and, as w/his Parents Wedding, is ensuring Happy News is the lead story for once!! Which was badly needed after this last little while of the news cycle.

God Bless the little HRH Prince of Cambridge and a long and happy life to him!!

Can't wait to see the CN Tower all lit up blue during the Blue Jays game tonight!!

I was thinking the same. But perhaps it will come in handy for this boy's futre baby one day.

Congratulations to the proud, exhausted parents and to their families. I'm glad they kept the news to themselves for awhile to enjoy the last few hours of privacy before announcing the birth to the world. Best wishes to the little prince as he faces a brave new world!
