New dad Prince William released a short statement summing up his joy on the birth of his son on Monday.
An aide told People.com that William will spend his first night as a father at St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, with wife Kate Middleton and their little prince.
William's father, Prince Charles, also released a statement, saying he was "overjoyed" about being a grandfather, adding, "Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone's life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months, so I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time."
UPDATE: The new parents released a further statement: "We would like to thank the staff at the Lindo Wing and the whole hospital for the tremendous care the three of us have received. We know it has been a very busy period for the hospital and we would like to thank everyone - staff, patients and visitors - for their understanding during this time.”
