LONDON (AFP) – Prince William and his wife Kate are to leave hospital with their newborn son on Tuesday evening and return home to Kensington Palace, the palace confirmed in a statement.

“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge will be discharged this evening from St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington,” the palace said.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son will travel home to Kensington Palace.”

The statement added that William and Kate wanted to “reiterate their thanks to the hospital for the care and treatment they have all received.”

Their unnamed baby son, the new third in line to the British throne, was born at the central London hospital at 4:24 pm (1524 GMT) on Monday weighing a healthy 8 lbs 6 oz.

The statement from the palace came shortly after William’s father Prince Charles visited his new grandson, telling the press as he left: “You’ll see in a minute.”

Former Trump attorney John Eastman used his University of Colorado email account to collude with a Republican lawmaker in Pennsylvania to formulate a pretext to seat Trump electors in a state Joe Biden won by nearly 82,000 votes. It was a last ditch-bid to overturn the 2020 presidential election, new emails obtained by the House Select Committee show.

Eastman devised a sinister idea to label tens of thousands of absentee ballots illegitimate, thus giving then-President Trump the state’s popular vote lead. This method, Eastman proposed, “would help provide some cover,” beneath which Republicans could swap Biden’s electors with sham electors for Trump who would subvert the 2020 elections.
