The London Eye Ferris wheel is illuminated in shades of the U.K.’s red, white and blue on Monday night to mark the birth of and new baby boy, the Prince of Cambridge.
What a work of art! Indian sand artist Sudarshan Pattnaik created this tribute to the royal babe on a beach in Puri, located on the eastern coast.
A toast to the prince! A group of residents at London’s Royal Hospital Chelsea, a nursing and retirement home, raise a glass to Will, Kate and baby on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, in New York City, West Village specialty shop Tea & Sympathy brightens up its window display with its own tribute to the royal babe.
In Canada, which Will and Kate visited in 2011, the Toronto sky is illuminated by the bright baby blue lights of the CN Tower.
Even members of the British Ministry of Defence – on patrol in the Caribbean before tackling tasks across the Atlantic – get into the spirit of the day from the flight deck of the H.M.S. Lancaster.
