World landmarks glow blue for royal baby
TORONTO – Several landmarks around the world put on a light show Monday night to commemorate the birth of the Prince of Cambridge.
London’s landmarks, including the London Eye, lit up in the national colours of red, white and blue, and the city had a party atmosphere unmatched since last summer’s Olympics.
In New Zealand, close to 40 buildings across the country lit up in blue including Sky Tower in Auckland, the airport in Christchurch, and Larnach Castle in the South Island city of Dunedin.
Canada joined in the lightshow as several landmarks, including the CN Tower, Niagara Falls and Parliament Hill bathed in blue Monday night in honour of the baby.
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to a healthy baby boy Monday afternoon after going into labour in the early morning hours.
Prince William was by his wife’s side during the birth of the 8 pound, 6 ounce prince.
