Video: Royal birth doesn't impress many in the Bay area

Tampa, Florida -- "Here ye, here ye!"

The announcement bellowed from in front of Buckingham Palace as Duchess Kate and Prince William became the proud parents of a future king.

The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth at 4:24 p.m. British time at St. Mary's Hospital. The crowds erupting into cheers, and televisions around the world tuned to the big news.

Lots of eyes were on the TVs at The Pub at International Plaza in Tampa, but the reaction here isn't exactly what it is across the pond.

"It's just another couple, having another baby. That's about it," said one man. That was the reaction of one Brit we found. 

The American sentiment wasn't that different. 10 News received the following responses:

"I'm not that interested in it, really."

"It's all hype. It's all celebrity. And I'm not impressed by all that."

"It's all blown out of proportion. In America, we idolize actors and celebrities, and I think that's how they are over there with the royals."
