Landmarks across the city of London have lit up blue to celebrate the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first child.
The London Eye led the magnificent tribute as it lit up blue, red and white to celebrate the country’s new Prince.

Alongside the Eye, buildings along the River shined the colour blue, while the bridges also followed by lighting up to honour the occasion.
Water fountains in Trafalger Square also lit up blue, while the BT Tower read the announcement of “it’s a boy”.
The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Monday evening after going into labour in the early hours of the morning. Prince William was by his wife’s side during the labour and the Palace did inform the world the process was “progressing as normal” at the time.

The little Prince, will become third-in-line behind Prince Charles and father Prince William and it is likely the baby will one day become King.
Earlier this year, it was confirmed the child would be titled ‘His Royal Highness Prince (name to be announced) of Cambridge. The mini monarch-to-be will make his first appearance to the world when his parents leave the hospital later today.
The couple will pose for photos before leaving the Lindo Wing. It is not yet known where the couple will go after they leave the hospital, although it has been rumoured the new parents will return to Kensington Palace before heading to Kate’s parents’ house in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
