SOUTHFIELD, MIch. (WXYZ) -
The British Monarchy Facebook page made this post early Monday morning in regards to the birth of the new royal heir.
A message from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge:
"We would like to thank the staff at the Lindo Wing and the whole hospital for the tremendous care the three of us have received.""We know it has been a very busy period for the hospital and we would like to thank everyone - staff, patients and visitors - for their understanding during this time."
Will and Kate welcomed a prince to their family Monday afternoon at St. Mary's Hospital in London. He will be the third in line for the throne behind Prince Charles and Prince William.
Thousands of fans gathered outside Buckingham Palace to witness the official announcement which came nearly four hours after the prince's birth.
There is no word yet on the new prince's name. An announcement could come as early as today.
