Bands and artists including Palma Violets, Professor Green and Lily Allen have all commented on the birth of the royal baby.

Kate Middleton gave birth to her first child yesterday (July 22) with a spokesperson for Clarence House confirming that the baby boy was delivered at 4.24pm and weighing 8lbs 6oz. A message from the Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall welcomed the currently unnamed boy into the world, describing the moment as "incredibly special". "Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild. It is an incredibly special moment for William and Katherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy," Prince Charles said.

The music world was less reverential, however, with Palma Violets tweeting: "We must sacrifice him to the lord of light" about the third in line to the throne. Meanwhile, Professor Green joked that he thinks the baby will be a partner in crime for his uncle, Prince Harry. "I hope the royal baby is a rebel, Harry's all alone out 'ere."

Elsewhere, Ellie Goulding, who performed for William and Kate after their wedding in 2011, tweeted: "Congratulations to two of the loveliest people in the whole world on their baby boy. I am so happy for them."
