It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy."
Also, it sounds like he hasn't seen the baby yet ... because he added, "We are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future."
12:53 PM PT -- THE DOCUMENT HAS ARRIVED!!!! And it doesn't say anything interesting at all, except that Kate "safely delivered of a son" and she and the baby are doing well. Woo-freaking-hoo.
12:45 PM PT -- The medical document is currently en route!!! WHAT WILL IT SAY?!?!?

Prepare for the onslaught of new British Royal collectible tea sets, plates, shirts, hats, etc. -- 'cause the Royal great-grandbaby is due any minute.
The Queen's people have released a statement saying Kate Middleton is officially in labor at a hospital in London.
Hundreds of Brits have already taken to the streets to await their new master.
The Monarchy is still not saying if the new baby is a boy or a girl.
We know ... once Kate pops out the little squirt, a document will be signed by a member of the official royal medical staff and driven under royal escort to Buckingham Palace.
The medical document -- which will contain the fundamental birth info (sex, weight, time of birth) -- will be displayed on an "ornate easel" at the palace.
We're told the name will not be released straight away.
Stay tuned ... we'll have the news as it emerges from Kate's vagina.

If pregnant women were capable of jealousy, one would say Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson might be a little covetous of Kate Middleton's physique -- 'cause they're all due around the same time, and well, one of these things is not like the other.
The Duchess of Cambridge visited the Willows Primary School in Manchester, England yesterday ... and you could BARELY tell she was with fetus.
Kate's due to give birth to Prince William's baby in July ... the same time Kim K's due ... and Jessica is also expected to deliver kid #2 sometime around then.
Royally Dissed by Little Girl

Believe it or not, not every girl wants to be kissed by a prince.
Prince William got the ultimate rejection when an adorable little girl recoiled in horror after he tried to plant a wet one on her cheek in Scotland on Thursday ... clearly, she was not convinced he'd had his cooties shot.
When you pretty much have a lock on that whole being King of England thing one day, kissing babies really is just for commoners.

1/22/2013 8:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The Mayor of Las Vegas is making a serious plea to Prince Harry now that he's back from Afghanistan -- COME BACK TO VEGAS, ASAP!!!
Harry completed his 5-month military stint in the Middle East this week ... and once he got out of the war zone, he finally broke his silence about his Sin City naked photo scandal to the U.K. media ... saying, "I probably let myself down."
But TMZ spoke with Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman ... who thinks Harry deserves a Vegas do-over ... and tells us the city is ready to roll out the red carpet for His Royal Highness when he's ready to come back.
"We’re absolutely excited he’s home," Goodman says ... adding, "Prince Harry is always welcome in Las Vegas. When he was here everyone was talking about it. We welcome him back with open arms.”
It's no surprise ... considering the city reportedly enjoyed $23 million in free publicity that was generated by the naked billiards scandal.

'I Probably Let Myself Down'
1/21/2013 4:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
It took 5 months, but Prince Harry is finally talking about his infamous game of strip billiards during his Las Vegas party weekend ... telling the media, "I probably let myself down."
Harry spoke with U.K. reporters after completing a 5-month military stint in Afghanistan -- and that's when someone asked about the pics ... first published on TMZ.com.
"I probably let myself down," Harry said ... adding, "I let my family down, I let other people down."
He continued ... "At the end of the day, I was in a private area and there should be a certain amount of privacy ... The way I was treated ... I don't think is acceptable."
"Back home all my close friends rallied round me and were great."
Harry said he considers the incident a "classic example of me probably being too much army and not enough prince".
We broke the story ... Harry had invited a bunch of random women he met at a hotel bar up to his VIP suite for a party back in August ... and during the shindig he stripped down to his birthday suit after losing a game of strip billiards.
