  • "New Day" at night: Cuomo welcomes co-host Bolduan to talk Royal Baby

On Tuesday night, "New Day" anchor Chris Cuomo again adeptly filled in for Piers Morgan, pulling up a chair in the British host's New York City studio.

But Cuomo was not the only early morning CNN personality to make an evening cameo, as Kate Bolduan joined her co-host from London with the latest on the "Royal Baby."

"They were both so calm," she noted, referring to Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge. "Which is surprising because it was such a crush of people and excitement and the noise and the media and the cameras that had been there for weeks now waiting for this exact moment."

Appearing alongside Boudan, Max Foster shared his perspective on this momentous occasion, having covered the story since inception:

“They came out and they looked calm,” observed the CNN Royal Correspondent, and fellow Brit. “She looked calm. He looked really happy. He can get stressed about the cameras, particularly that number of cameras. But he looked happy and calm. I think they look like a great little unit.“

As Prince William put the baby – since revealed to be named George Alexander Louis – in the car and the new parents drove off, the Duke and Duchess seemed not that dissimilar from any other family:

“They were literally saying this is a sign of the new monarchy" said Foster. "We're normal. We're down to earth."

Said Bolduan, even the slightest modern twist can be seen as entirely significant:

“William getting in the driver's seat to drive them away...that's actually quite a big deal," she noted. "The folks I was talking to, that I was around were like, whoa, that's a big deal. That's a break from royal tradition.”

  • "By George!" Arbiter and Nicholl assess the new prince

On Tuesday, as the world’s gaze settled on Will and Kate’s brand new baby boy, "Piers Morgan Live" invited both Victoria Arbiter and Katie Nicholl to offer their insights and analysis:

“I like the fact that they took 24 hours in hospital beforehand to really enjoy that privacy," noted Arbiter, a CNN Royal Commentator. "They knew the minute those doors opened and they presented their baby to the world, they've opened a can of worms that can never be closed again.”

With the wait for Prince George likely the single most-anticipated British moment since the birth of his father, the royal couple appeared remarkably calm.

To Nicholl, also a CNN Royal Commentator, every decision made is significant, including the drive home to Kensington Palace, their first as a new family:

“We're talking about modernizing. We're talking about change," she told guest host Chris Cuomo. "We're talking about this little boy, this prince, this future king, taking us into the 22nd century.”
