Royal baby: Prince William jokes about 'strong name' after new son's birth

Kensington Palace announced that The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a son at 11:01 a.m. GMT Monday, and he weighed in at 8 pounds, 7 ounces. Carole was also on hand to help with the school run as she was pictured collecting Prince George, four, from school.

As previously mentioned, not long after Pippa's grocery store situation, her sister Kate Middleton gave birth to a brand new baby boy, who Pippa just might end up being godmother too.

He also joked about baby names, telling Sir Jerry Mateparae, New Zealand High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, that Jerry is "a strong name".

As for the name of the baby, the 35-year-old royal was reportedly open to the suggestion of Alexander, which also happens to be his oldest son, Prince George's, middle name.

As the couple stood outside the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital with their baby boy, Prince William and Catherine exchanged a few words to each other that the public couldn't hear.

Of the people polled, the majority of Americans think the new royal baby's name will be "James", which got 26% of the vote, or another name.

The Dean of Westminster joked: "Jerry would like it to be Jerry", to which the Duke replied: "Jerry's a strong name, absolutely".

Prince William has revealed that much to his family's relief, his royal baby boy is "behaving himself" as he attended the annual Anzac Day service at Westminster Abbey this afternoon (April 25). Albert may very well be a nod to each Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, and Queen Elizabeth II's father, King George VI, who was referred to as Albert till his accession to the throne.

Tony Appleton, a town crier from southeast England, showed up in full regalia to declare the newborn prince's birth outside the hospital. Previously younger males would take precedence over older female siblings.

The former Kate Middleton traveled by auto on Monday morning to the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in central London.
