Prince William has been advised to spend tonight in hospital following the birth of his son at 4.24pm today. However, Dr Donald Dockter of London's St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, who is heading the team of doctors caring for the prince assured the people of Britain tonight that he does not think there is anything seriously wrong with William and that he could even be allowed home to fully recover by as early as next week.
"I think he's simply exhausted,' said Dr Dockter from the hospital this evening. "Fortunately he is a fit and young man so should pull through. Frankly, it has to be expected that he will be feeling very tired after holding his wife's hand for so many hours. However he has asked me to make it clear to everyone that he has decided to accept his first wife's apology for the lengthy delay in giving birth to his son."
The Prime Minister had earlier cancelled all his official engagements after receiving news that the prince might not pull through. Speaking from Downing Street this evening a clearly relieved David Cameron said,
"I have just been informed of the latest news from the hospital. William is now expected to eventually make a full recovery. Absolutely wonderful news. I have of course sent a message to the hospital to be given to William letting him know that Britain wants him to take all the time he needs to build his strength back up before trying to get out of bed and back on his feet again."
