Prince William and Duchess Catherine emerge from St. Mary’s Hospital in London with their baby boy, who has yet to be named. This is the first public appearance of the royal baby, but certainly not the last.

Addressing the weary press outside St. Mary’s Hospital, Prince William finally presented his newborn son and apologized for the young prince’s tardiness. William confided he is thankful that the baby inherited its mother’s look, before putting it in a car seat and heading home.

There have been so haters on here so that is why I say that. People have the right to express their opinion, however, it should be done elsewhere.

In the U.S. our media glamorizes this like this baby is the chosen one.

Ok people I'm not narrow minded or anything don't get me wrong.. I wasn't trying to insult the british monarchy or anything I'm just annoyed by the over coverage of this.

UK cares, the world don't and I have respect for that. But spamming my newfeed with baby news everywhere just pisses me off. Not even sure why I am subscribed to mainstream Times when I loathe mainstream...

I for one love happy stories.. Life of a future King is great news! Yes, we all know there are starving children..very sad and it isn't getting better but worse! In the history of man people would migrate to find game and food sources or they perished. Unfortunately, governments have put up laws that limit migration.. so these people are destined to starve. Feeding them a minimum to survive is worsening the problem. I am not a Monarchist but a believer in tradition and the values true nobles have. Long Live the King!! and the Noblesse of all nations!

Happy for the couple... A happy healthy baby is always something to appreciate. It's just some good news when so many are suffering hardships. The media is capable of covering more than one story, even if it does not, that does not mean that people should not wish this baby all the best as we would any other new life that touches us. These royals have shown that they are dedicated to the service of helping others and upholding high standards of character and compassion for those that struggle across the globe... The media just needs to show that they can walk and chew gum at the same time.

I don't understand why people care. Why is this baby different than scores of babies who are born every minute and who die in wars and terrorism.

Love this picture, at least they are not asking for millions of dollars for a picture of the new Prince like celeberties here in US do! Whether a Prince or my neighbor's baby, love a new baby! They are precious and innocent..doesn't matter whose baby it is.

He is just like other babies, this story doesn't deserve all that. There many children (and babies) who die from starvation in Africa, others getting killed by American drones in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen, others getting killed by the Israeli Army in Gaza etc etc, these babies who deserve to be talked about, people (like you) must open their eyes about these innocent babies.. Whether this baby is the future king of UK or not, is irrelevant, this story is not important for the entire world. The Royal family is nothing but waste of money. Sociologists said that in all over the world, every baby was born, he/she would possibly change the entire world to the better. So, Every baby is ROYAL, not only the royal baby.. I neither care about this royal baby, nor about (football, politicians, artists etc) they are all s***, and people must send all that to the garbage..#peace..

Jesus is not popular, because most human God's creation do not believe in Him. Although Hod had said ; " This is my only beloved Son that he who believes in Him has life, and he who does not believe in Him has no life. When He will come back, every knee shall bow, every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, even those who pierce Him. In His return He will be our King and King of kings. May God Bless and forgives us all from our sins.
