Reactions to the royal baby

Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their son George Alexander Louis birthing the popular hashtag #royalbaby. Here are some reactions to the birth announcement.

Christian twitter enthusiasts:

Some Christians on the internet insisted that the media had gotten it wrong, and that the real royal baby had arrived 2000 years ago.

But not all corners of the Christian world were miffed. The Church of England shared a prayer for the royal baby:

God our Creator,

 who knows each of us by name
 and loves us from all eternity:
 we give you thanks for new life and human love.
 Bless William and Catherine
 as they welcome their son into the world.
 Give them patience and wisdom
 to cherish and love him as he grows.
 Surround the family with the light of hope and the warmth of your love today and always; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Pope Francis

No reaction. How dare he not acknowledge such a momentous birth?
