Duchess Kate gave birth to a baby boy on July 22 and the popular Canadian attraction decided to honor the occasion by illuminating the waterfalls blue for the newborn. According to Janice Thomson, NPC Chair and Niagara Falls Illumination Board member, this was the city’s special way to commemorate the birth of their future king and congratulate the royal couple on the arrival of their first child.
New parents Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their first child into the world after the pregnant Kate was admitted to hospital in the early hours of July 22. Kate’s labor had gone well, and experts revealed it was about the average time for a first time mom in labor. Her royal husband was by her side and mom and baby are doing just fine.
The new royal trio left the hospital 25 hours after his birth, posing for photos in a similar fashion to that of William’s parents, Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, who gave the world a first glimpse of the two Princes when leaving the hospital. The baby was named George Alexander Louis and will be known as
His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge. He is the third-in-line to the throne.
In December 2012 the Royal Family confirmed that Kate would be welcoming the couple’s first child this summer. A few months into her pregnancy, the Duchess was admitted to hospital for severe morning sickness.
In 1991, Diana, Princess of Wales, Prince William, and Prince Harry paid a visit to Niagara Falls Ontario Canada, wearing raincoats for an up-close Niagara Falls attraction tour. According to Thomson, the city would be delighted to host a Niagara Falls vacation for William and Kate as well.
The popular tourist destination of Niagara Falls attracts more than 12 million world-wide visitors each year.
