ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A beaming Prince Charles told reporters that his grandson, Britain's new prince is "marvelous" after meeting him for the first time on Tuesday (July 23). Prince William and his wife Kate were expecting to leave the hospital later on Tuesday or Wednesday (July 24). Kate, 31, gave birth to the couple's first child, who is third in line to the British throne, on Monday (July 22) afternoon, ending weeks of feverish anticipation about the arrival. Their son is third in line to the throne after grandfather Charles and William, 31, and pushes the fun-loving Prince Harry, William's brother, into fourth place. The baby's name will be announced later. George and James, both traditional royal names, were favoured choices with British bookmakers for the child who is destined to be king one day. Kate and William are expected to adhere to tradition by giving the public the first sight of the royal baby on the steps when they leave St Mary's in west London - just as William's father Prince Charles and late mother, Princess Diana, did with him.
