News of the Royal Baby was everywhere, TV, radio, and social media. But William and Kate got some time alone with the newest addition to the royal family.

"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 4.24 p.m."

That is the official announcement that the child third-in-line for the throne was born. The most surprising part of the message was the time--4:24. In an age of Twitter and Facebook, the royal family held back news of the birth for four hours.

Royal historian and researcher, Candace Metz-Longinette-Gahring says the need for boundaries with the press is very important for this prince because of the way his mother, Princess Diana, died. "The paparazzi chased her to her death because they had to have the latest pictures, the latest everything. As the woman lay dying they were taking pictures. I think that fueled his determination that I am going to have a private life", says Metz-Longinette-Gahring.

As for the name of the newest member of the royal family, that's still a secret.

Duchess of Cambridge is in labor

   Palace officials say Prince William's wife, Kate, has been admitted to the hospital in the early stages of labor.  

   In a brief statement, Kensington Palace said: "Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted this morning to St Mary's hospital, Paddington, London, in the early stages of labour.

   "The duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo wing at St Mary's hospital with the Duke of Cambridge."  

   The duchess is expected to give birth in the private wing, where Princess Diana gave birth to William and his younger brother, Prince Harry.  

   The baby will be third in line for the British throne - behind Princes Charles and William - and is anticipated eventually to become king or queen.
