Outside the Lindo wing of St. Mary's Hospital, where Kate Middleton gave birth to a healthy young prince this afternoon, we caught our favorite celebrator spreading word of the birth in an appropriately British get-up, complete with feathered hat and scroll.

Thanks to some good, old-fashioned gum shoeing, we now that he appears to be Tony Appleton, a freelance town crier who saw his moment to jump onto the international stage. We imagine he'll be getting some more bookings in the upcoming weeks.
