Warm congratulations to Kate and William upon the birth of their son.

I shall plump for King Richard!

Well done, Kate and William.

My warmest Congrats to you both from across the Pond.

I'm miffed!

I just came in and checked BBC site and it said 3 minutes ago about the birth. I took it to be that the birth has just been announced!

Wasn't trying to 'outdo' Paula+ and her thread.

Thank you, Paula+ and Kitty.

So you're getting scatterbrains like me, Kitty!

So glad I'm not alone.

22.10 BBC site says 12 minutes ago details of the birth!

They're way out to lunch with refreshing their site!

I think Diane / Dianne might be considered.

I somehow doubt if Diana would be considered 'correct'.

Just my fourpennth, you understand ladies!

I think Diana would have been ecstatic being a granny.
