ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A half a world away, they’re welcoming a new British prince into the world and at the London Tea Room in downtown St. Louis Monday, several people came out to celebrate the birth of the royal baby.
Kara Kurcher ran over to the London Tea Room as soon as she heard the news.
“It is exciting, it is exciting” she said.
Though the official announcement of the sex and weight of the baby came on Monday afternoon, it could be as much as a week before his name is announced by parents Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
“I was thinking, I don’t know, maybe George or something. A family name,” Kurcher guessed.
“It’s got to be in the family,” another Tea Room patron said, “like William or Henry or Phillip. Something very traditional, I would assume.”
“Or she would totally go opposite, do something crazy and make the family crazy,” another woman pondered.
The London Tea Room says they’re working on a special tea blend to honor the baby prince.
