July 22nd 2013 was a huge day in history. After it was announced Kate was in labour with Prince William by her side at 6am, the world was waiting for news she had safely delivered their baby. Before, during and after the announcement of the little boy's arrival, speculation around the royal baby's arrival was unavoidable.

Here are some of our favourite photos, videos and tweets from the huge news days around the royal birth...

Kate Middleton

Prince William and Kate Middleton have arrived! Oh wait...

Prince William and Kate Middleton lookalikes were sent along to the Lindo Wing in an effort to fool the media into thinking the Duchess had gone into labour. It worked.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Lion King!

Twitter was full of people hoping the royals would take inspiration from The Lion King when presenting the baby to the world for the first time...

BBC reporter Simon McCoy's very honest news coverage...

Simon McCoy's reporting of the big day outside St. Mary's Hospital's Lindo Wing was inspired.

The Queen's fake Twitter account

Elizabeth Windsor's parody account, ‏@Queen_UK, posted a string of funny tweets while Kate was in labour.

Could Wills 'do a Jacko'?

Everyone remembers when Michael Jackson dangled his nine-month-old son Prince Michael II over the balcony in Berlin. Could Wills do the same from Buckingham Palace?! We think not...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Who's the daddy?

A keen Photoshop user had fun imagining that notorious love rat John Terry was in the delivery suite when Kate gave birth.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Speculation over the name

With the name yet to be revealed, Twitter users went to town imagining what Kate and Wills might choose for their little boy...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Spice Girls at the royal birth?!

Could Kate have had the Spice Girls to hold her hand through the labour?! Perhaps not.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Sun becomes The Son...

Someone give the subs at The Sun a raise! The paper decided to change their name in honour of the baby boy's arrival.

...While Private Eye takes a more laid-back attitude

Private Eye mocked the huge amounts of media coverage surrounding Kate Middleton with their cover.
