Sign virtual card for royal baby, Prince of Cambridge

Walking the line between tradition and modernity has made the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge favorites among Britain’s youth. The birth of the Prince of Cambridge is no exception to this practiced style. Not long after the public royal baby announcement, Clarence House tweeted a link to a Google+ card for the baby boy, who was born at 4:24 p.m. GMT.

The card is open until August 6th. Google+ users can “sign” the card by hitting +1 on the post or write a message by sharing the card and adding text. After entries close, a printed version of the card will be presented to Kensington Palace. As of 11 a.m. EST Tuesday, the card had been signed 20,114 times and shared 8,353 times. Sign the card here.

Although the couple’s original plan was to have a royal driver transport a royal courier from the royal wing of St. Mary’s Hospital to Buckingham Palace where the news would be displayed on the royal easel used for Prince William’s birth, the first announcement came electronically.
