See This Unsuspecting Couple Get Swept up in the Royal Baby Media Frenzy
All hail the new royal family!
On Monday morning, Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their third child, a beautiful 8-pound, 7-ounce baby boy.
As reporters gathered around the steps of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in London to snap the very first photos of the new royal baby, however, another couple walked out on those famous steps.
The couple, who have as of yet not been identified, were immediately caught in the media crossfire, holding their own newborn. They looked, as one would expect, pretty surprised by the turnout.

For the moment, the new royal baby will be named HRH Prince Cambridge, though royal sources say some top contenders for his name are Albert, Arthur, and Fred. Princess Charlotte is already making history by being the first female royal to not have her line to the throne usurped by a younger baby brother. The line now goes Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and HRH Prince Cambridge. Prince Harry has been knocked all the way back to 6th in line to the throne, which, given how unconventional he and Meghan Markle are, probably suits him just fine.
