The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrated the birth of their 3rd child today, April 23rd, a boy. Less than 12 hours after giving birth, William drove Kate and the baby home to Kensington Palace.

Now, here's the announcement of the Royal Birth!

Compare that to the announcement of a baby's birth at Eastern Maine Medical Center. Ever heard it? The sound of chimes are played over the intercom system, announcing the birth of the newest Mainer. It's a little lower key than having the town crier announce ring the bell and announce "Oyez! Oyez! Oyez!"
