David Cameron has said he will take his "place in the queue" to see the newborn royal baby, doubting that his own prominent role will get him an early viewing of the future heir.
Speaking to Channel 5 News' Emma Crosby, the Prime Minister said he was "pottering around the kitchen" moments before hearing the news that Kate had gone into labour.
Mr Cameron also offered some advice for William and recalled the "small contribution" he has made to shaping the royal baby's future.
