As Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrate the birth of their baby girl, celebrities and royal fans are rejoicing in their own right and are just as excited for the couple. Ever since the news was announced of the birth of the new Princess of Cambridge early Saturday morning social media has been aflutter with well-wishes for the royal couple and their new arrival from everyone from Princess Diana's brother Charles Spencer to the Obamas and British Airways.

Members of the media and hundreds of spectators have flocked to St. Mary’s Hospital as well as to Buckingham Palace to catch a glimpse of the easel that displays the Princess of Cambridge's arrival similar to when her big brother Prince George was born.
Princess Diana's brother Charles took to Twitter to send his congratulations to the couple. He wrote, "Very lovely news from the Lindo Wing - so happy for all 4 of them."
When little George was born on July 22, 2013 and had his first official photo opp just a day later on the steps of the Lindo Wing, royal baby frenzy ensued. Ellen DeGeneres, who has said she is a very distant cousin of Duchess Kate, took to Twitter and wrote, “It’s a boy! So happy for my cousin Kate and the future King of England.”

Being a parent is the best job of all.” Reality royalty Khloe Kardashian even joined in and tweeted, “How phenomenal is this picture! Awww #PolkaDotPerfection #RoyalBaby."
