Royal Baby: French Rugby Fans Chant in Excitement for Royal Birth

Rugby fans interrupted the Sky News on-air team during its live report.

After the British royal palace early Saturday alerted media that Kate Middleton had gone into labor, TV crews were allowed to take up their positions outside St. Mary's Hospital in London.

Media coverage immediately kicked into high gear, particularly in Britain.

‎Among the TV teams providing live reports were Sky News royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills and Sky News anchor Kay Burley.

At some point, the two were interrupted by a French group that started a chant for another TV crew. The Sky News on-air team fell silent and allowed their cameraman to record the moment.

Burley then mouthed "I don't know" to the camera and said the team would need a translator to understand the song lyrics beyond the words "royal baby."

Sky News later tweeted video of the incident, saying: "Rugby fans share excitement for arrival of Royal baby outside the Lindo wing."
