Here are the five best British tabloid front pages on the royal baby

July 23, 2013

Love or hate the United Kingdom's tabloid press, their front pages are known for attention-grabbing pith and clever turns of phrase. Monday's news that the Duchess of Cambridge, formerly known as Kate Middleton, had given birth to a boy -- a young prince third in line for the British throne -- was a golden opportunity, exactly the sort of moment they savor. And, boy, did they deliver. Here are some of the most humorous, provocative or simply memorable front pages from Tuesday's tabloids, starting with today's big winner, the ever-cheeky Private Eye:
