Canada’s Niagara Falls lights up blue for Royal Baby

Canada’s Niagara Falls has lit up blue this evening to mark the birth of the new Prince.

The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby boy on Monday evening and the Canadian landmark has decided to honour the occasion by lighting the waterfalls up blue for the boy.

The world wonder will light up for the next two evenings from the hours of 9 and 11pm.

New parents Prince William and Kate welcomed their first child into the world on Monday evening after the pregnant Duchess was admitted to hospital in the early hours of Monday morning.

Kate’s labour is believed to have gone well, and experts revealed it was about the average time first time mums spend in labour.

Prince William was by her side and the mum and child are currently staying at the Lindo Wing. It is expected the new royal trio will leave the hospital at some point later today.

Last month, the proud parents announced they would be posing for photos when they leave the hospital, in a similar fashion to that of William’s parents, Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, who gave the world a first glimpse of the two Princes when leaving the hospital.

It was confirmed in December 2012 that Kate would be welcoming the couple’s first child this summer after the Duchess was admitted to hospital after suffering from severe morning sickness.
