Coverage of royal babies past

There may not have been the constantly-updated #royalbaby feed all the way back in 1948, nor endless live footage of the entryway of Queen Elizabeth’s hospital, but people nonetheless heard the news - in part thanks to old-fashioned newspaper front pages.

Above is just a sampling of how the Times has covered previous royal births. Stay tuned for tomorrow to see how we tackle William and Kate’s newly-announced 8 lbs., 6 oz. baby boy!

And, you can look at all of the front pages here.
