The announcement was made:
“The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a baby boy, weighing 8lb 6oz, at 16:24 BST at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, west London - mother and baby are "both doing well", Kensington Palace says”
The BBC news channel went straight to Bucklebury, home of the Middleton family for some reaction:
“We could almost hear the sound of champagne corks popping behind closed doors when the news was announced”.
