ROYAL BABY: More Congratulatory Messages Pouring In!

Congratulatory messages are flooding in from around the world to mark the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's son, the third in line to the throne.

Prince William said the couple "could not be happier" following the birth of the boy, who weighed 8lb 6oz and is yet to be named.

Reports say the expectation is that they will leave hospital on Tuesday. The birth will also be marked later with a series of gun salutes.

The duke was at the private Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, west London, for the birth - and stayed with Catherine and the baby overnight.

The couple are expected to talk to their medical team before they make any decision to go home.

At Buckingham Palace, royal watchers and tourists are queuing in the rain to catch a glimpse of a bulletin announcing news of the birth, which is being displayed on an easel.

The notice is to be on show for 24 hours, which means it is likely to be removed just after 20:00.
