New grandfather Prince Charles is sharing his excitement over the royal baby.

"We are both so pleased at the news," reads a statement from both Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. "It is a great joy to have another grandchild, the only trouble is I don’t know how I am going to keep up with them."

This isn't the first time he's gushed over the youngster. Shortly after the news of the birth was shared publicly, Kensington Palace released a statement via Twitter, which read, "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news."

Charles is expected to be among the newborn's first visitors at Kensington Palace. Of course, George and Charlotte met their younger brother, whose name has yet to be announced, yesterday at the Lindo Wing.

While Will and Kate didn't stand for pictures too long in the dreary London weather, Prince William did say they were "very happy, delighted" by their new son, and quipped, "thrice worry now.”
