Crystal Palace hail 'name of Royal baby' with tweet after Kate Middleton gives birth to boy

The Duchess of Cambridge welcomed her third child to the world – after George and Charlotte – on Monday morning at the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital.

The happy news was released to the world shortly after, with news agency AFP tweeting: "BREAKING Prince William's wife Kate gives birth to son: palace".

Crystal Palace's social media team sprung into action with a witty and sharp comeback, saying: "Great name", followed by a clapping emoji.

Better yet, the stunt interrupted the Under-23s clash between Palace and Birmingham, with the Twitter team taking a breather from the action to make the joke.

At the time of writing, the tweet has received over 8,000 likes and 3,000 retweets with fans loving the quick wit from the South London club.

One supporter even replied: "#GiveSocialMediaManagersFootballersWages"

The name of Prince William and Kate Middleton's third youngster is yet to be named – however, it's hard to see any world where Aston Villa die-hard Wills would allow "Palace".
