Royal baby gets some early meme treatment

THERE'S nothing like a good laugh to help pass the time.

As the world waited with bated breath for the royal baby announcement - the internet got to work.

The result? A bevy of humorous memes to welcome the baby boy into the world.

Some were quick off the mark - then again they've had months to prepare.

Twitter went wild with jokes - from many wanting Prince William to hold up the new born ala Rafiki holding Simba in The Lion King to dodgy photoshop jobs putting the royal couple into various (and precarious) situations.
