The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a son at a London hospital.

The baby was safely delivered at 4.24 pm on Monday.

The baby weighed 8lbs 6oz.

CNN reports that hundreds of people were seen running towards Buckingham Palace as news of the announcement broke.

According to reports, Prince William was with her throughout labour and delivery.

“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight,” a statement from the royal household said.

A name has not yet been announced for the child, who is now third in line to the throne.

    Manhattan Declaration, U.S.A, is another US non-profit organization which I subscribe to. As with Color of Change, I receive important information of occurrences in the U.S., what we will not hear through US, Canadian and no doubt, European Secular Media.
    Behind the scenes which some of us are not aware of, these Christian organizations do fight for general justice, the right to life, of the unborn, against euthanasia, justice for the aged, the under privileged as also oppressed US blacks and immigrants. They do tell it like it is without watering-down the truth.
    As this new baby, blood of earthly royalty is applauded, parents and parents-to-be, cheer up. All babies are precious Children of God. God loves them all. This should also please those who are anti-monarch and lament about the attention given to this royal-called, newborn baby boy.
    The following is interesting. It should influence and encourage parents to love, nurture and discipline their children appropriately. Food for thought. This is what their headline stated with the, “Well Said” information:

    Every Baby Is A Royal Child of the King
    There is something about royalty that captures our attention. Even in an era when the throne wields little political power, the cultural influence of the royal family is enormous. The splendor of the wedding of William to Kate reminded the world of the solemnity of vows, as the anticipation of their first child reminds that each new life is sacred. If only the world understood that each of us is the child of a King! Perhaps every marriage and every new life would be so appropriately treasured.

    Romans 8:17 – Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

    If any of you read the Bible you will take note that God himself has appointed leaders overs, including kings and queens. They are not better than us, but they are there for a purpose, sanctioned by God.

    The birth of this child is celebrated because it symbolizes continuity for the traditions and institutions of Great Britain, which is an important nation historically, and therefore it is also important to the world.

    2000 years ago, a little boy was born to Mary, in a sheep house in Bethlehem. There was no hospital available, not even a room in a motel they could find. He had no clothes like Prine William’s son, so they wrapped Him in what we call “bedding”. He had no cradle, no playpen and surely no global coverage of His birth. Unlike the son of the Dutchess of Cambridge, very few people showed any care or concern for His birth. He had no Earthly royalty nor any advanced provisions made for His schooling, keeping, health, entertainment, security, etc.. But His mission was to change the world and regain the cosmos for His father. His love for you and I are immersurable, and His mission to save you and I continue to this day in a sanctuary in heaven. His name is Yesous, the Christos. Focus on Him; not William’s son. The latter can do absolutely nothing to change your lot on earth.

      Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible say, Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day.
      Hark now hear the angel singing a new King born today. And man will live forever more because of Christmast Day!

      Jesus loves the little children of the world!

      We know all about Our Lord Jesus Christ’s birth. Did you consider, whenever a baby is born, Heaven is rejoicing over the birth?
      It is left to the parents, whoever they are to nurture and discipline their children appropriately.

    Would the Queen and the “Brutish” people agree for Prince Harry to marry a black woman?

    • July 23, 2013

      I would think if Prince Harry was IN LOVE with a black woman, the Queen could NOT prevent him from marrying her. Prince Harry is his own person. Prince Charles married Princess Dianna and NEVER stopped loving Camilla. What happened after Princess Dianna’s passing? Prince Charles married Camilla. Where is Camilla sitting? Next to the Queen at the breakfast table.

      • July 27, 2013

        Is Camilla black? Would be nice to see Prince Harry’s black wife’s cousins coming to visit and bringing their Basketball to shoot some hoops at the Castle. No black Camilla would be sipping tea with the “Queen” for sure…

    Who cares about a royal baby? Every woman who gives birth gives birth to a royal baby. We blacks were the first royal people in Africa before the europeans came and stole what we had. These british people have become rich by plundering Africa. England is just an island so who cares? Do they care about us?

    I wonder if it was some royalty from Africa who gave birth would this issue have gotten so much attention?

    I do not see what the sensationalism is all about, it’s just another birth and kudos to William and Kate.

    When/If Mrs. Melissa Skerrit gives birth, I look forward to seeing the type of comments so that I can better be able to draw a conclusion about our people’s state of mind. I really would like to see how we treat our own.

    Sometimes I simply sense and feel that some of us still have the slave mentality. It’s white it’s good; it’s black it’s bad. Am I wrong?

    Every human being is equal in the sight of the Most High, only the content of a man’s character who raises him in degrees, not his sex, race, geographical location etc.

      When that day comes, hopefully, DNO will publish and the people who are for, just like Will and Kate, will congratulate, and those that are against, again just like Will and Kate, will CARE LESS.

    I am happy for their blessing, because children are a blessing from God. But by the way, they are exploiters, they have more drama in the royal family than the average Joe. They have divorce too. Where in the world they have earned all these gold, and fortune. The British have exploited all the English speaking Caribbean. USA helps Dominica more than England.

    They made our parents work hard in the Banana industry and they get reed of The Banana Industry.
    The US and French Islands in the Caribbean are better off than the English ones. The British have use and abused us, and when they have sucked the juice out of us, they dumped us. They so love us, why is it so much harder to go to England now.

    Princess Diana was a true human in the Royal family. You see how quick they got reed of her, since she started to love going to do good for poor people, especially the less fortunate in Africa. The Royal family if they don’t ask for forgiveness from God for all the evil they have done to poor people, they will go to hell with all their earthly wealth. What shall it profit a man if he have gained the whole world, and looses his own soul. THE ROYAL FAMILY ARE PEOPLE JUST LIKE US, AND THEY ARE VERY SELFISH.

    Finally, the world got the good news. It is a boy, a baby in blue, 8 lbs. 6 ozs.! He is a big newborn baby. Kate is slim. I did not expect her baby to weigh so much. She was obviously well taken care of. No wonder she was sick during the early stages of her pregnancy.
    Great Britain is the happiest among us in the world.
    Canada is a sovereign country. Therefore the majority of Canadians are happy. From dusk to dawn The CN Tower in Toronto will turn “Blue”. Sundown starts at approximately 9:00 pm since the sun sets late in summer.
    So is Niagara Falls. The view must be beautiful. I cannot see the CN Tower from where I reside. I have to settle for viewing the blue color of the CN Tower and Falls on TV. If the baby was a girl, the color would be pink.
    The baby boy is the third heir to the throne. It is said that this is the first time it happened that three heirs are alive.
    I am happy for them that all went well.
    It looks like there will not be an heiress for some years. The end of the world may come before this happens. :)
    My thoughts went to dear Princess Diana. If only she were alive, she would be a proud grandmother. I also said, “Princess Diana, I hope you are in Heaven. If so, I hope God gives you a view of your grandson.”
    Well royal baby boy, welcome to the world, whatever it is today, not the same as in bygone years. I wish you well. Hope you grow up to be a healthy child and adult. As it is said, your reign may not happen until 50 years from now. Let us hope the world will continue then and beyond. Most of us will be long gone from this earth with more babies being born as you to take their rightful place in the world. We are eagerly awaiting to hear of your name and your progess as you grow older.
    God Bless the proud parents and baby boy.

      Do you have EWTN – Eternal Word Television Network? EWTN is broadcasting the proceedings as it happens. Let us see if DNO will post it. These days DNO appears to have a lot of news. I am listening to it.
      You know whenever DNO posts matters of the Catholic Church, Satan is so angry that his critics, influenced by him make derogatory comments. This is not fair to us Catholics. We do not harass or lambaste them for their religion, also not towards those who renounced their Catholic Faith, yet they make it their business to do this to us and disrespect our religion, its beliefs and practices. This is not a Christian act. Our Lord who said, “Love one another” is taking note.
      I guess the Royal birth concerns everyone. The world has been waiting to hear of the birth. This is why DNO posted it. I will give DNO credit for that.

It was founded by King George V by royal proclamation on 17 July 1917, when he changed the name of his family from the German Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (a branch of the House of Wettin) to the English Windsor, due to the anti-German sentiment in the British Empire during World War I”

      I may give myself away. :) I always feel I descended from royalty. I do not hang it on my shoulders though.
      Two people so far in Toronto have informed me that I look like a Queen; dress like a Queen, one was a co-worker. This is my Dominican upbringing, being a descendent of my parents. :) I always say we are products of our parents.
      Along with this is conducting oneself with class, dignity, pride and being a respectable person. It is depicted in the demeanor.
      You may find this surprising that whenever I see the Queen, she reminds me of my mother.
      These Royals as they are called happened to be born into it and others as Kate, acquired it. But for their worldly royal status, I do not view them better than I and not even the Prime Minister of Canada or any such person who holds similar status. I can stand up to every one of them.
      Furthermore, when they die as others, their remains will go six-feet deep. They will be judged by God who judges all hearts and works, not for their earthly status but for whatever sincere good they did on earth.
      All earthly pride and status will be routed from them prior to entering Heaven. If they obtain eternal salvation, will they be at par with all others? I doubt it very much. God has his plan. So much more could be stated.

      He also expects as He taught us, that we live a godly, moral life. This also pertains to governments. They must institute “moral Laws” and not immoral ones for all will be judged by what they did on earth, what they instituted on earth and what good and godly deeds they left behind. Holy Scripture clearly teaches and defines that. No one will escape the fair judgment of God and his just recompense as each one deserves.

    Even some whites can see…but our OWN people are still sleepwalking and blind….

    The black man is feared all over the world. Everywhere he goes he seems to be the first enemy. Whether it’s the lady clutching her purse tightly at the sight of a black man entering the elevator or the fact that the prisons are filled with black men. Being the biggest target of the police, they are the enemy of the state. Everything negative seems to amplified as a black male.

    Although he is feared he is also admired. Black men’s presence is admired by women all over the world. Their physique is often referred to as godly. Physically dominating in most athletic competition. The educated black man’s swag is impeccable.

    Black men are the fathers of humanity. And when a black man reaches his full potential? Man the possibilities are endless. What would happen if black men unified with black women and focused on rebuilding their communities? New Kemet can be built.

      It would be interesting to see if this baby would be born on the nature isle. Cause I suspect that bourgeouis he marry will not want to give birth on Stronach ward. They will try to fool us and say she has to travel because of complications and give birth in the US …lol

      You think the queen of England knows every mayor of all the small towns with 70,000 people in her own country? Why should she know Roosevelt Skerrit, who is head of a little debt-ridden Republic that does not recognise the queen except on its dollar bills? Malgraysa.

As they grow older it will get more expensive. As happy as parents could be, it is enough to shock them. Good luck and all the best to all of you.

      Here is a joke for you; a true one. You may have heard this one. It appears to be in the days when there was no electricity.
      The story goes, a man’s wife was having birth. Her husband was holding the lamp for the doctor. One baby was born, then two, then three… The husband walked out of the room. The doctor called him back. He said he is not returning, it is the light that is attracting them. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Ah,I was expecting a little Girl. Queen Elizabeth did fine. A little girl would brake the ice. The Brits love their female monachs.Nonetheless we welcome the little third in line monach into this world. Dominica is a Republic and is not obligated to have national celebration as the Queen is no longer head of state. Still though, we share in the joy of our former colonial rulers.
    That being said, we patiently await our own “First New Born” and hope that we can All join in celebration.

      That is because in our paranoid society everything has to be vetted before it can be published so as not to fall foul of the the supremo and his entourage. Please understand, even DNO has to follow this line.
