The Natural History Museum goes Blue for the Royal Baby

Kate MiddletonThe Natural History Museum in London has joined in on the celebrations for the new heir.

As soon as Buckingham Palace announced that the Duchess of Cambridge had given birth to a bouncing new baby boy, the NHM were among many London institutions to get planning how they’d celebrate the new arrival.

To mark the public celebration, the museum has decided to light up its Waterhouse building with beams of blue light in honour of the new baby boy. It’s the least they could do after Kate announced she would be the iconic museum’s patron earlier this year.

This dramatic transformation will see the iconic building turn bright blue for three nights, with the last night being on Friday, following sunset.

As Kate and Wills emerged from St Mary’s Hospital last night, the nation caught a glimpse of the new Heir to the throne and royal baby excitement spread across the whole of London. But as Kate and William get settled into parenthood, we’re sure these public displays of celebration will go on for some time.
