Regional newspapers have joined titles across the world in celebrating the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s son yesterday.
The baby’s birth was finally announced to the media at 8.30pm last night, allowing morning regionals to get the news on their front pages today.
It has led to local newspapers looking to find new ways to cover the story, including the Caithness Courier which changed its title to the Caithness Courheir for the week.
Its edition, which was published on Wednesday, featured a special masthead to mark the prince’s birth and its front page reported on a local couple whose baby was born on the same day.
And the Reading Post, which covers Kate’s family home in Bucklebury, also changed its masthead – adding a lion with a crown to celebrate the royal birth.
The announcement of the baby’s arrival followed a day of waiting after it was announced early yesterday morning that the Duchess of Cambridge had been taken to hospital in the early stages of labour.
The Royal baby, who is third in line to the throne, was born yesterday weighing 8lb 6oz at the private Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in West London.
