A host of London landmarks celebrate the birth of Prince Cambridge…
Along with the crowds who celebrated the birth of the Royal baby boy, Prince Cambridge, outside St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington and Buckingham Palace, a range of famous capital landmarks also marked Kate Middleton and Prince William's new arrival in a unique fashion.
In additional to the traditional 41-gun royal salute that accompanies the birth of any Prince or Princess in Green Park, the City of London's Army Reserve Regiment will also fire a 62-gun salute from the Tower of London at 2pm today. Popular tourist attraction Trafalgar Square also marked the news by lighting the famous fountains in blue LED lights; these will remain lit for the next six days.
The London Eye also marked the occasion with red, white and blue lighting while the fountains in Marble Arch and the Golden Jubilee Bridge followed suit with traditional blue lights.
Town criers also took to the steps outside the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital and Windsor Castle, alongside London’s BT Tower who lit up its circular podium with the message “It’s a boy”, complete with pictures of storks bringing a tiny bundle to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
