It's clear the young royal is giddy with excitement. When asked about being at the delivery, he replied, "I haven't been at many births. This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible, and, as I said, I'm so incredibly proud of my wife."
He described his initial reaction to the baby's arrival, saying, "This little thing is absolutely to die for. I am over the moon."
Aw, that's so sweet to say and so kind of the prince to share his happiness with the world.
Any suggestions for a name?
