  Original Published: 7/23/2013  By now, you've probably heard the news.    Prince William and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, have welcomed their first child into the world.   It's a boy.   Though we don't know his name, the little Prince of Cambridge is a cause for celebration in London.    Andrew Spencer has the story.   The news traveled from St. Mary's Hospital where the prince was born, to Buckingham Palace, where crowds cheered, as the formal announcement went up.   Local newspaper, The Sun, got in on the excitment with this headline over a picture of that announcement.   And this one from The Daily Mail, "Oh Boy! One's A Grandpa!"   One being, Prince Charles.   Outside St. Mary's Hospital, people shared their excitement of being around to witness the fanfare.   "It's so historic, I want to tell my children I was here the very day that the monarch, possible monarch, was here. So, it's very exciting!" said one spectator.   People flocked to the palace, celebrating with toasts, full of royalist pride.   This woman says she expected different news.   "I was expecting, really expecting a girl, but I wanted a boy for some reason. I think little baby boys are cute," she said.   Prime Minister David Cameron offered his congratulations to Prince William and his wife, Catherine, on the newborn prince.   "I'm sure right across the country, and indeed, right across the Commonwealth, people will be celebrating and wishing the royal couple well," he said. "It's a wonderful moment for a warm and wonderful couple who've got  brand new baby boy."   The newborn prince is third in line for the throne.   The baby's name may be announced when the family leaves the hospital.   Some British parents have delayed naming their newborns in recent days in hope of copying the royal name, or avoiding it.
