It seems the UK's royal baby frenzy won't be over any time soon. Media from around the globe remained outside the London hospital on Tuesday where the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby boy a day before. Journalists were joined by royal fans, who have been camped out for days in preparation for the newborn prince's birth. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MARIA SCOTT, ROYAL FAN, SAYING: "We've been so excited we never slept. When we heard the news that she had had the baby we were all singing and dancing and cheering and singing 'It's a boy, it's a boy, it's a boy' and that went on for a good couple of hours and we've just never come down." (SOUNDBITE) (English) GILL HODGES, ROYAL FAN, SAYING: "It's a grandchild of Diana and a future king. It is just a wonderful occasion." Meanwhile, crowds continue to swell outside Buckingham Palace - the scene of overnight festivities marking the royal occasion. So far, betting pundits favour traditional royal names George and James for the 8 lb, six ounce baby, who is third in line for the British throne.
