Crystal Palace were the fastest out the trap with a brilliant tweet after Kate Middleton gave birth to her third child on Monday morning.
The Duchess of Cambridge delivered the baby boy, weighing 8lbs, 7oz, at the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, on St George’s Day.
Her husband William was present for the birth, and both mum and baby are "doing well", Kensington Palace said in a statement this afternoon.
The happy news was announced by thousands of news outlets on numerous social media channels, including AFP, who took to Twitter to write: "BREAKING Prince William’s wife Kate gives birth to son: palace".
The use of the word ‘palace’ was of course included to acknowledge the source of the breaking news, but a certain Premier League team took it upon themselves to have some fun.
Well, what else are you going to do on a happy occasion, eh?
Pretending that the word following ‘son’ was in fact revealing what Kate and Wills has decided to call their baby, Crystal Palace’s official Twitter account wrote: "Great name!"
The tweet received 845 likes – at the time of reporting, we estimate it is a lot more now – and hundreds of re-tweets. Brilliant.
Is Palace a good name for the new Royal baby?
