23 July 2013 Last updated at 15:38 BST

South Africa has warmly welcomed the news that the Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a baby boy, who is now third in line to the British throne.

BBC Johannesburg correspondent Milton Nkosi reported the messages of goodwill that South Africans have for the royal couple and their son, the Prince of Cambridge.

He explained: "The reason why we find royal enthusiasts here is partly because Prince William and his brother Prince Harry have been visiting South Africa over the years and they support a lot of charities here."
