Celebrations in Windsor

The new Prince of Cambridge is the latest addition to the house of Windsor. George V chose the Berkshire town as the family's name in 1917, because of its castle, which remains to this day the preferred weekend home of the Queen.

Sharon Thomas has been to Windsor to find out how they've been celebrating the birth of a future king.

A baby girl in Basildon has received a royal welcome, after she was born at exactly the same time as the Prince of Cambridge.

And - quite appropriately - she's been named Kate.

Mum Natia Kavelashvili - who gave birth at Basildon University Hospital yesterday - had never thought that she might share her big moment with the Duchess of Cambridge.

The mum of two, from Langdon Hills, Essex, said: "I was being prepared to have a caesarean earlier in the day, but there was an emergency so my caesarean was delayed for a while.

"It is strange to think that this meant I ended up having my baby at 4.24pm."
