Philippa Gregory on the Royal Baby: "He will be introduced...and they will say, this is your great grandmother and you have to bow"

On Tuesday, well-wishers and baby-lovers across the pond and stateside alike oooh'd and aaah'd as the child of Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, made his first-ever public appearance.

Barely a day old, the as yet unnamed third in line to the throne melted hearts with a royal wave prior to being safely buckled into his car seat by his 31-year-old proud papa.

Filling in for Piers Morgan, tonight Chris Cuomo invites Philippa Gregory to offer her insight as to what it will be like for the baby boy who'll grow up quite different from the rest of kids on his block:

"He’s going to live in a palace. So, that will occur to him fairly early on,” says the author of both "The White Queen" and "The White Princess." "He will be introduced to his great grandmother and they will say, this is your great grandmother and you have to bow. You call her mum."

Joining Cuomo for a face to face interview, the best-selling writer notes that despite a country ripe in history and tradition, the newest member of the royal family figures to benefit from a slightly more modern and less withdrawn upbringing:

"What’s very helpful about, you know, his two parents is that they clearly have a quite positive and optimistic relationship with the British public,” she says. "It's playful, and they are quite playful."

Watch the clip for more of Cuomo's interview with Gregory, and for the full episode of "Piers Morgan Live" tune to CNN at 9.

    Oh dear, it's oblivious two people in love had a baby. It's not any more exciting than the young couple is Zulu land having a baby. It's all about the privilege of birth or the luck of the draw.
    The New prince will live in glamor & royalty fairy birth while the Zulu baby will live in a hut of straw & dirt & life for ever hardship. I wish them both babies the very best.

    Why does the media not invite Annie Machon?

    Knowing the Zulu to be prowd warriors I would think your opinion is the Zulu baby could be in the USA on Food stamps and be supported by the whites and live better than he is now. This would be from your lifestile or you have a dismal view of how blacks live in Africa, George Zimmerman came to the USA from Peru as an Afro-Peruvian with his family only to get jumped in a complex by a black Afro-American born in the USA but looked at him as white and tried to bash his head in only for the young man of color to lose his life. the NAACP feel the Peruvian black is to white and want him in Prison. I would suggest that Zulu African is safer in Africa as the black tribes in the USA are led by the NAACP.
