Have there been any congratulations sent from other royal families? I've seen a couple from some presidents.

[QUOTE=Excalibur;1580129]This quote from the article

Quote:
One thing is certain for me, however. No matter how much Carole Middleton involves herself in the birth and early years of her first grandchild, her attentions could not be greater than those Diana would have provided.[/QUOTE]

seems a bit disrespectful, implying that Carole could never be the grandmother that Diana would have been.
Daily Mail articles, leading by the dear Richard Kay, are always a bit catty toward the Middletons and Charles :

Royal baby boy born: What kind of grandad will Prince Charles be? Ask GEOFFREY LEVY AND RICHARD KAY | Mail Online

Royal baby name: 'We've no idea what he's called' says Prince Charles | Mail Online

Just have found that Prince Albert and Princess Charlene have sent their message of congrutalations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on such a wonderful news.
https://www.facebook.com/PlaceRoyale...51477478547161

Have other foreign royals sent any messages so far?

No. Why even bring up Carole Middleton's name in a piece designed to describe your sadness about Diana's missing out on the birth of her first grandchild? Where did she find that connection? Diana's relationship to the boy prince would have had little to do with that of his with his mother's mother. And Carole Middleton was going to love that baby and play a huge role in his life whether or not Diana was still with us; the child is her daughter's first baby, also. That was, IMO, just distasteful.[/QUOTE]

I couldn't agree more! Whist I think we all had Diana in the back of our minds, tinged with a bit of sadness of what could have been and how happy this would have made her... I think it's totally disgraceful and distasteful to bring in the Middletons! Some respect for the maternal grandparents who have always held themselves with more grace and class than most!

On a separate note.. what happy news for the new parents!!! Looking forward to seeing the wee baby and I'm betting the name George Philip Arthur

#royal #Kate #Middletons will be first of the set of grandparents to visit

Michael & Carole Middleton (grandparents) gave a nice smile while arriving to see the royal couple and grandson for the first time.

Just saw the grandparents go in...they are so lovely. I guess baby and parents will not be leaving any time soon.

Quite a contrast in these two reactions, but it's always nice to hear the extended family reactions. Sophie in particular always seems to make lovely comments. And Anne never dissappoints. :)

It's probably because they don't have a name yet. If you don't pick one while in the hospital you need to register it later (or so I would assume).

Anne so warm an fuzzy. LOL Love Sophie she is always so positive. They may not leave till tomorrow I'm surprised they waited this long to go see him. I hope we get some sort of description we don't even know if the little guy is bald or has hair.

In the UK we register births in the local registry office. I believe following the birth you have about six weeks to register the baby, or there is a fine.

The baby was born in the London borough of Westminster, so that's the registry office the baby will need to be registered at.

Do you think they will leave today? On one side I think yes because there was the hairdresser....Could it be a hint that they will not stay with Kate´s parents because they are visiting? If they would leave today and go to the Middletons they would probably not visit today...

That was a lovely statement from Sophie though.

Loved seeing the Middletons going into the hospital. They looked beyond excited about seeing their first grandchild.

It seems like the Cambridge's will be leaving the hospital tonight.

Duchess of Cambridge's hairdresser Amanda Tucker has been seen going into St Mary's Hospital. Another member of staff took car seat in.

Someone upthread mentioned that the reports of the hairdresser coming to the hospital were false. I don't think the fact that the Middletons are there necessarily indicates the new family will or will not be staying with them. They probably just couldn't wait another minute to see that baby! I know I wouldn't wait, even if they were coming to stay at my home!

I believe it's already been stated that William and Kate will go back to KP with the baby for the first two weeks, and Kate will go to Bucklebury when William returns to work

Yep just saw the pictures. Looks like the Cambridge family is leaving around 6:30pm indeed! Ugh it will be 6 in the morning here lol so I'll miss the instant appearances again :(

Can't wait to see the baby, hope they will stay longer
