Queen Elizabeth Is Glad Her Great Grandson Doesn't Have His Dad's Ears

Your sex life will never be the same. In my day. What, not breast-feeding?

From diet tips to "little baby, little problems," sleep-deprived and super-stressed new parents have heard it all. And they want you to stop it.

As Britain's Prince William and his wife, Kate, move along on their parenting journey, it seems even the queen has had a what-not-to-say moment. According to a special edition of Us magazine on raising royals, she exclaimed soon after William's birth: "Thank goodness he hasn't ears like his father!"

The Nursery Isn't Quite Ready Yet

The Telegraph reports that the couple hasn't yet finished decorating a nursery because they are waiting for the completion of their new apartment within Kensington Palace. According to E!

What Is The Royal Baby's Official Title?

The royal baby is here! Now that we've seen him and his parents have said some sweet words about the birth, we're left wondering... what is his official title?

Until Will and Kate choose a first name, the royal baby will officially be titled as "HRH Prince of Cambridge." It makes sense, given that his father is titled "Prince William, Duke of Cambridge" and Kate is titled "Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge." In fact, the royal baby's title will be the first time "Prince of Cambridge" has been used in 194 years! Find out more about his royal title here.

Kate Middleton and Prince William left St Mary's Hospital at 7:14 pm BST on July 23 with the royal baby boy in tow.

The duchess arrived at the hospital early in the morning on July 22 through a secret entrance. She gave birth to the 8-pound, 6-ounce baby at 4:24 p.m that day, more than a week after his rumored due date.

\"I'll remind him of his tardiness when he's a bit older,\" Prince William joked to the press waiting outside the hospital. Kate stood beside Will holding her newborn son while wearing a bespoke blue dress by British designer, Jenny Packham. See photos here.

The Royal Baby will \"suck the blood\" of Russians, a firebrand local politician has said, in reaction to the birth of the new prince.

“I don’t care about the heir,” Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who leads Russia's nationalist Liberal Democrat Party, told journalists. “That British monarchy... destroyed our state. Today our opposition activists are there, so that’s why there’s no joy,” he told Ria Novosti.

Accusing Britain of being an \"sworn enemy\" of Russia, Zhirinovsky said “that is why the birth of another British monarch, who will suck our blood somewhere in the mid-21st century, cannot bring us any kind of happiness.”

Much has changed over the many generations of royal baby births leading up to Kate Middleton's delivery, on July 22, of a baby boy.

Unlike Queen Elizabeth II, the Duchess of Cambridge did not give birth at home. Her husband joined her in the delivery room -- and the home secretary didn't. Clarence House confirmed news of the baby's birth on Twitter.

And while no one who has been following the spectacle of the royal pregnancy and birth -- least of all, probably Kate herself -- can say that it was a process devoid of anxiety, this year, for the first time in history, one of the peculiar pressures of giving birth to a royal heir was off.

Plus, recent research from the National Institutes of Health, moms take significantly longer to give birth today than they did 50 years ago. Altogether, as Laura E. Riley, the medical director of labor and delivery at Massachusetts General Hospital and the author of You and Your Baby: Pregnancy, told USA Today this morning, it takes about 12 to 24 hours for first babies to show up.
