Royal baby: Internet goes wild over Prince William's joke as he leaves hospital with new son





Thrice worry now!

Prince William is garnering praise on Twitter for a funny little quip he made while loading his newborn son into his Range Rover outside of the Lindo Wing in London on Monday.

Wife Kate Middleton gave birth to the couple's third child on Monday morning at 11:01 am, and hours later the royals drove back to Kensington Palace after debuting their son to the world - a remarkably quick turnaround!

While buckling his new son's car seat into the car, William had a short interaction with the adoring media and crowd outside of the hospital, where he held up three fingers and joked, "Thrice worry now!"

"Delighted. Very happy," he also said. "We didn't keep you waiting too long this time."

People online were quick to praise the lighthearted moment, too.

"Prince William is such a class act," one person tweeted. "When asked how he felt today he said 'I'm delighted' and joked 'Thrice the worry now.' I think when my third daughter was born I just said, 'Bugger.'"

Another user said that William's "dad jokes" were "quaint and charming," while someone else said that they "love" his comment.

Not everybody was taken with the second-in-line's joke, though.

"I was all, 'Aw Prince William is so down to earth, chatting away there,'" one person tweeted of the moment. 'Then he used the word 'thrice.' Back to the Palace mate."
