He's one proud prince.

"Both my wife [Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall] and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild," Prince Charles, 64, says in a statement. "It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy."

He continues, "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 and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future.”

The Prince of Wales and Camilla had been anxiously awaiting the delivery along with the rest of the world. "We are all just waiting by the telephone. We are hopeful that by the end of the week he or she will be here," the Duchess of Cornwall, 66, had said last Monday.
